I can’t believe I haven’t stamped since Wednesday night, no wonder I am cranky(DH nods head in total agreement)!!! If you know me at all, you know I love the SCS challenges, so when I don’t get to play, I have withdrawals!! I seriously thought about going back and playing all of them, but instead, if I can work them in with a current challenge, that is the only way they will get done(only so many hours in the day ya know!!). My card today actually combines three challenge(woo hoo), the My Favorite Things sketch challenge, the SCS Technique Lover’s challenge, and the Great Swaps girls weekly challenge from last week. I started by using the sketch that Cindy provided and stamped my new Take A Break image from the MFT presents line. It was stamped with Black Stazon on watercolor paper and colored in with my aqua painter and SU markers. The paper is from the Nana’s Nursery Baby Boy stack, which completely blows my mind because last time I checked purple was NOT a boy color-oh well!!! The layers for the main image were cut out using my Cuttlebug and Nesties . The strip of Sage Shadow(gasp!!) was run through my crimper(gasp!!) which was what the GSG challengewas(to use your crusty dusty old crimper-LOL!!). I tied a silver organdy and lavender polka dot organdy ribbon around and tied it in a knot. I then added some silver brads everywhere and a silver spiral clip, because lets face it, what’s a card without some hardware!! The flowers are primas that Jodi sent me, and they matched my colors perfectly, so I had to use them. To finish it off, I rubbed Perfect Pearls all over the card to give it some shimmer(that was the TLC challenge). That is it for me now!! I have a ton of stuff to catch up on, and I finally got my stamp room clean, so I am headed back to my table for another challenge(maybe even three at a time-you never know!!). Thanks for stopping by and checking on me, I really appreciate it!!
Before I go, I wanted to share an RAK that I got through the mail from my pal Lee!! Thanks so much Lee, I love it(if you are wondering where the altoids are, my DH stole them, but don’t worry, I fight dirty and I WILL get that tin back!!LOL!!)
