Hello, everyone! It has been a busy two weeks here. We are in the process of getting our kitchen and bathrooms remodeled. So that has really put a kink in my crafting! I am trying to find time to work it all in.
This card was a High Hopes sketch challenge. It was originally for the design team tryouts, but I didn't make the deadline. I used My Favorite Things stamp set for this card. Stampin Up for the sentiment. The base cardstock is Georgia Pacific white (found at Wal-Mart). The next layer (brown) is SU Creamy Caramel. The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye. I used Staz-On Timber Brown ink for the stamps. I colored in the stamped image with Prismas and OMS. The blue cardstock is SU Soft Sky. The mat behind the stamped image is SU Barely Banana. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Finally... a blog post!

Hello, everyone! I finally found time to craft! This card is based on the Sketch challenge at Paper Craft Planet. This was just a quick card, but I think it came out great.
The base cardstock is SU's Certainly Celery. I used SU's scalloped Edge punch for the edge. The blue cardstock is SU's Bashful Blue. The grid paper came out of a paper pack I bought at Michael's. I used SU's Spiral punch on the grid paper. The circled pattern paper is DCWV Spring Stack 2007. The flowers are from Stampin Up. The brad is from Hobby Lobby. The sentiment is SU's Live Like You Mean It stamped in Staz-On Timber Brown ink.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
