Wow, it has been a week since I posted. Sorry for the long break. It seems to have been a little crazy around here! I have been stamping though. My club met and I had Sale-a-bration classes yesterday. Such fun! I love stamping with my friends!! Wednesday is here and you know that means a brand new challenge from Freshly Made Sketches. This fantastic layout is from Cindy Hall of Pretty Impact. This one is so versatile and I can see so many uses for it. I know it will be in my sketch file for future use too.
I combined some old and some new for today’s card. I was searching around in my paper file and came across this print from Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP that I thought would be great to use. Naturally, I scooted right down to all the ribbon and chose this Basic Black/Basic Gray 1-1/4″ Two-tone Ribbon to go with it. Wow, this ribbon is so pretty! I kept it kind of simple and tied on one of the new Silver Basics Designer Buttons. I thought it would be great as a frame of sorts for a flower from the Flower Trim. It was out on my table from the classes and practically fell onto the card. The sentiment is from Apothecary Art and, of course, a Basic Pearl on the flower to finish.
I love this sketch and need to play with it some more this week to see what other variations I can come up with. I know you will have some great interpretations and I look forward to seeing the creativity in the gallery! Make sure you check out the rest of the design team’s cards. How lucky I am to work with such talented people!
Well, I am going to be a substitute teacher today at my boys’ school. I have the day off and apparently they were really needing help to call me! *smile* I guess that means no stamping but I will try to get some posts up showing you a class card and maybe some Valentine’s for my boy’s classes at school. Until then, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope your day is great!
