May 26, 2012

Aaaand she's back! Wow. Time has been flying by and it has NOT included stamping. Can't believe 4 months passed since I last made a card. Hopefully, I can manage to continue to carve out time for my favorite hobby!! I hopped around my favorite Challenge Blogs and found a sketch over at Stampin 411.  Here is the card I made for the challenge:

Stamp Set: Fabulous Florets
Ink: Basic Gray, Wisteria Wonder, Lucky LimeAde
Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Basic Gray, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Embellishments: Tempting Turquoise Brads, Designer Buttons Brights (I used an Old Olive!), crochet thread, Lucky LimeAde ribbon from SAB pack
Tools: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch
I squeaked out this card a coule of weeks ago to give as a Thank You for a guy.

And this one I made yesterday for a friend who ordered a pack of 12 cards from me - I had 11 sitting in a box, but just needed one more. :)

 The "buttons" on the bottom are layered 3/4" and 1" circles with holes punched in them and a thin brushing of Crystal Effects.


Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!
