Cup of Tea - AHSB 208

I had a crazy busy day today but I was able to sneak in some time in my scrapbook room today in between meetings. I needed some creative play time after a busy 4 day weekend with the kids home for Easter.  We had a great time playing outside in the nice weather and enjoying the sun.

I got right to work on my entry for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I love the sketch challenge because it is a road map so even you only have a few minutes to create you can usually get something done quickly.

Paper:
- Dreamin Big
- Black, Saffron, and White Daisy card stock

Ink:
- Black, Glacier, Poppy, Saffron, and Cocoa

Stamp:
- C1616 Treats of Friendship (retired)

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my work, I do appreciate it. I would love to see your take on the sketch!

Until next time, happy crafting....

Paper Hug - BTF Challenge

Time for a card....I made this one for the Some Kinda Wonderful card workshop. I love the stamp set I used for this one, I will admit, I was on the fence about ordering, I wanted it but would I really use it. The fact that it is the Operation Smile set (portion of proceeds goes to Operation Smile) made it easier but would I really use it? Oh my I am using it, this is just the fist of many projects with it, a great investment for a great cause!

Crazy, Silly, Fun - BTF challenge

Hello!

This week / month is all about Some Kinda Wonderful as that is the paper pack we used for this months workshops. Today I have a layout that is inspired by one of my customers sons. He is a cutie pie but he is crazy, silly and oh so much fun and always keeps her on her toes so this one is for you little buddy! I really do try to customize my layouts to my customers / friends so that they are usable immediately where possible and the pictures are in their scrapbooks on pages and not a pile of pictures and a pile of unused layouts.

Play Laugh - BTF Challenge

Hello! Spring is in the air at Between the Folds (BTF)! Spring really brings the kids out of the house after a long cold winter and it is time for the wee ones to be outside and playing with their friends. I created this card with that in mind. My girls ride the bus to school so while I am very involved at the school and always there volunteering it is often during the school day and I do not get to meet many of their friends parents. So there are few that I do not know and would like to get to know so that we can get the kids together for some fun times. I made this card to introduce myself and provide our phone number and email address to begin a dialogue for inviting their kids over to play. I could just write a simple note but I am a paper crafter and that goes against my core values...he he he

This stamp set is School Kids and initially I was not a fan of it but the more I saw what my fellow consultants were doing with these cutie pies I just had to have it.
