Hey everyone, and happy Wednesday!! Since it is Wednesday, it is time for another Wednesday Stamp Club challenge from My Favorite Things!!

Pin It

For my card, I used the Clearly Sentimental About Pets set. I stamped my sentiment on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo ink, then cut it out with the Open Scalloped Doily Duo Die-namics. I paired it with Three Bugs in a Rug Frisky paper, and Kiwi, Sno Cone, and Black Licorice card stock. My ribbon is Black Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and has a charm from the Pet Charms Die-namics. I used the Small Open Scalloped Border Die-namics with Black Licorice, and the File Tab Die-namics for my base.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies.

Here are the Die-namics I used:

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out MFT Blog for a full list of designers participating in today's sketch!!

While I was hanging out with Jessica Knutsen, and a DOZEN other FABULOUS stampers this weekend, Jessica had us all do a special project. We were to all make a two page spread for her to make a memory book about this weekend. We were all given two blank pages, and allowed to decorate them as we wanted....TONS of fun! I fell in LOVE with the Every Child set as soon as I saw it, so I HAD to use it on my page! I stamped my girlie on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. I then layered it with Taken with Teal and Wild Cherry. My paper is from the MME Dilly Dally pad. I used some Thickers for my name...and the nickname Kim O'Connell so LOVINGLY gave me. My sentiment was cut out with the MFT First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics, and I used a PTI Flower Die. My ribbon is Satin Edged White Grosgrain from the Ribbon Carousel, and my brads are from Michael's. I also used the Monarch Border Die-namics from MFT.
