Thinking of You

Happy Saturday! We are having a lovely sunny morning with a wonderful sound of melting snow dripping off the roof. There is hope! There will be spring and eventually summer!

Prickley Pear has a sketch challenge up and running – open for all, no prickley products needed. So if you have a spare minute to craft this weekend – come play with us! Here is all the info! And here is the sketch:

I felt more like squares and straight lines than circles today so I went with a rectangle  panel for my card:

Thinking of you

The panel is made out of cardstock colored with gesso, distress ink and some mist. I tied twine around it and some silver thread and then covered it all in Utee in layers. It was fun!

Thinking of you två

The stamps used are Coffee Stain and a sentiment from Clearly Beautiful Butterflies Set.

I was inspired by the paper brooches on this page for my card – I did this for the Inspiration Challenge over at SCS.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fly Away

If you are here for my Prickley Pear Blog Hop post – you find it HERE! You have until tomorrow midnight EST to participate! There are some amazing new stamps and dies showcased and a niiiice prize for one randomly drawn winner. Just saying!

Now over to today’s card:

I stumbled upon a new (for me!) stamp manufacturer from Netherlands a week ago – Art Journey -  and I had to place an order right away. They arrived on Thursday and I’m in love! :)

Fly Away1

They have a monthly challenge on Art Journey’s DT blog and this month the theme is to make a man’s card in rainbow colors. Well… I managed the color cirteria, but I’m not sure if my boy counts as a man… Anyway I had super fun playing with the bubble plastic stamp, coloring it up in different colors with my Tombow pens. Love how it came out. And the boy – soooo sweet!

Fly Away2

The design is based on THIS card for today’s featured stamper challenge over at SCS.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fab Sunday!
