First of all, thank you so much for all of your enthusiasm for the new Challenge Blog Paper Sundaes! If you haven't done the hop yet, scroll down to yesterday's post and get the details, there is lots of candy to be won and there is still time! Thank you for all your encouraging comments, they made my day!
For today's card, I was playing around with a similar color scheme as I had out all my MME papers from making the Sundae card. I have had this SU set, Love Matters forever and had never inked it - tsk, tsk. So, I inked it up and played a bit, can't wait to use some of the other stamps in this set.
Here is what the inside looks like. I used a quote from CTMH's "True Friends" which is the stamp of the month for January.
Oops, I almost forgot, I am going to put this in as another entry for the Just Us Girls challenge this week which is to use stitching! I must say, finding a place to leave my sewing machine OUT rather than tucked under my scrap counter was the best decision I ever made!
What I used:
Stamps: SU Love Matters, CTMH Jan stamp of the month True Friends
Papers: MME, CMTH blush & chocolate
Embellishments: prima flowers, SU ribbon, Kaiser pearls, cotton candy Stickles, misc buttons, machine stitching
Tools: EK success border punch, CTMH edge distresser
Well, I am going to schedule this post and hope it works. I have never done it without being around to check on it to see if it works, so fingers crossed. I am heading out of town tomorrow for a work road trip and should be back sometime Wednesday evening. I will only have computer access via my work laptop and unfortunately, they frown on using it for things such as blog hopping - imagine that! -so I will be mia for a day or two, but look forward to visiting when I'm back. Have a great week!
Shanna :)
