Can you believe it??? We are getting SNOW! Last night we had an inch or so. I'm scheduled to go out of town Friday morning, so I hope the weather cooperates and I can go. I'm all ready for the class, so I'd hate to cancel it.
Lisa came up with a really cool sketch for us to use in this week's Bloggers' Challenge! I really liked the circle element on this sketch.
I started with a base card of Old Olive cardtock and added a layer of Kaleidoscope Designer Paper. I stamped the daffodils from Stampin' Up!'s Abundant Hope stamp set in Old Olive on Whisper White. Then I colored them with my Stampin' Write Markers in Pumpkin Pie, Yo Yo Yellow and Old Olive along with the AquaPainter. I used the Circle Scissors Plus and cut out the circle shape, then layered it on an Old Olive circle. I used the Scallops #2 die to make my yellow scallop circle.
Across the bottom I placed a stripe of Old Olive from Cottage Wall Designer Paper. I added butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit cut from Chocolate Chip Cardstock. And I added crystals from Eggscellent Eggs Kit on the bodies of the butterflies. Finally, I stamped Happy Easter from Teeny Tiny Wishes on Old Olive and punched with the Word Window Punch, then shortened it by placing it inside the Word Window again and cutting it down to match the print.. Fun card!
As you may have noticed, I've been extremely busy with classes and projects and not getting to my blog posting! I hope to be back on schedule next week! Have a great weekend!
