Thanks a Bunch!

I still am floating over the exciting news I shared yesterday! I worked on the Ismaki Challenge last night and a Thank you card made with my one and only Rachelle Anne Miller stamp seemed perfect to work with in honor of Stampavie! Although it won't be my only for long... got orders out there!

This weeks sketch is really great. My only struggle was with the vertical title. I really didn't have anything that "fit". Especially with the papers I picked from Daisy D's Sweet Baby Jane line. I loved the floral paper and it went so well with the pink and green lined paper, that reminds me of old fashioned Chenille. The bands could have been done with ribbon very easily, but the pink lines in the paper just went so well.


I stamped the lovely Penelope stamp with Brilliance Graphite Black Ink, and heat set as I was in a hurry to get it colored. =) I colored with my Copics and Twinkling H2O's. Then high lighted with my trusty white gel pen... (yes Fran, I love my pen LOL!) I cut the circle with my Nestibilities and then cut a scallop out of a bright white card stock. Now this stamp is perfect for an oval cut, but the sketch had a circle, so I held my breath and cut the circle. And love the way it came out! I used a Hanna Stamps sentiment that I curved on my block to fit the circle shape more. I "stitched" down everything with my gel pen, again =).


Now those flowers are just great aren't they! I found them at my LSS they had tons of colors and shapes. And even better I could pick and choose what I wanted and what type of leaves, all for just a dime a piece! I am so in happy with them... I do believe I need to go and get more before they are all sold out.

Today is MIL shopping day already! Once a week I take my Mother-n-law out and we run errands, hit sales, the craft stores and the grocery store. So I need to get ready and check on the donkeys and hit the road! Hope you all have a great Tuesday!

HUGS and-

LOL, great card Michelle, love the papers.

'white-gel-pen-itus' illness must be spreading as I've just made my DT card for CCT this week and looking at it now have realised I've 'stitched' all over it(you'll see what I mean on Thurs)! All your fault :D xx
