Hello, and Happy Monday!
Once again, I had a week with very little stamping. Why? Because my craft room has been a MESS! Ha! I found myself in a rut, barely touching the mess, and unable to create anything (stamping or writing) for days. The good news is, I have gotten a good start on reclaiming this room. We'll see how long that lasts!
In spite of the heaps of ribbon scraps and uncleaned stamps, I did have to create 2 cards over the weekend. I made one Saturday morning...finishing it just before heading out the door...and another one Saturday night...finishing it just before bed. Both were made on a tiny corner of my table, as I shoved the heap aside! (I know many of you crafters can relate!)
The card base is handsome hunter. I added a layer of Irresistibly Yours dsp, sponging generously in garden green, wild wasabi, certainly celery, baja breeze, and daffodil delight. I added a strip of striped wasabi ribbon. My stamped leaves and flowers on the scalloped circle are from SU's "Best Blossoms" in wild wasabi and melon mambo, with a bit of baja breeze for more sky, then mounted on a wasabi circle from my Sizzix circle die. Finally, I added the sentiment from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" with the word window punch.
Next is the birthday card I made in the morning...actually early afternoon. Crazy thing is, I had some ideas for this card that would have worked for a DTGD challenge, but it just never came together. But with the deadline looming, I kicked into full gear! BARELY on time. So late in fact, that we didn't get a picture before we left the house.
The picture with the card was taken late in the day after l'il Miss Olivia changed clothes...but check out how adorable she is in her special outfit! Call me biased, but she's adorable in anything!
So...no blog challenges with these cards. Just deadlines. And the challenge of a messy room! That's plenty, dontcha think?
Thanks for stopping by!
