Happy Thursday everyone! What's your plans for the upcoming weekend? I hope to do some crafting tomorrow night with my crafting buddies. I have a few projects I would like to get checked off my list as "done!" Saturday I hope to get up early and walk to my mom's house. It is about a 6 mile walk so I am looking forward to it. My fingers are crossed for dry sunny weather. I don't need it to be warm (would prefer that it wasn't) because walking will keep me nice and toasty. I love walking especially this time of year when God is changing out the landscape and added dashes of yummy jewel colors everywhere. My tree is already losing her leaves. Wowzer!
I am dropping in today to share a card I made using Sylvia Zet Wee stamp "Amy." I had created a frame for my e-buddy Kim to use with a card she was making. She wanted me to design her something that would work with a circle easel card. You can check out the card and frame here on her blog. (I will be selling this frame and many other soon. So keep a look out here for further details. You can email me at cards by candy at yahoo dot com if you are intersted in me designing one for you.). When I saw what image she was using I told her how much I really liked the image, but I didn't own any. Well, I lied. I didn't know they were called Wee stamps. I saved the three that I have as Sylvia Zet stamps which are also called Wee stamps apparently. Well long story that I am about to make very short, I used "Amy" to make my card. I also designed another frame called "Friendship" to go along with this stamp.
Here's my creation...
Okay, enough stories and now on to how I put this card together. Well I started with 6x6 kraft card base, layered on some pink Bazzill cardstock and then MME Miss Caroline dp which I stitched on the sewing machine. I then cut out the friendship frame and the sentiment mat using the pink cardstock. I flipped the dp and used a strip to run across the center of my card with a Kraft mat. I colored my image using Copics, Stickles and Copica pen. I added some flowers from Wild Orchid and I could not complete this card without adding the perfect sentiment from Create with TLC.
Moral of this blog post...don't be afraid to take on a challenge. :-)
