I am stamping today when I should be doing a lot of other things, so I'll make this quick! This card is really out of my comfort zone as it uses some shades that I don't normally turn to: River Rock and Garden Green. I added Crumb Cake which I love, but the whole effect is rather somber. But I didn't want to toss it, so I persevered, using Mary Jo's sketch for this week:
And here it is:
AFTER I finished my card, I realized that Mary Jo also used a butterfly on hers....I swear I wasn't trying to copy, but it seemed like a perfect addition!!! LOL! I used Apothecary Art, stamped in Garden Green and colored with Lucky Limeade ink and a blender pen. I just had some other pieces laying around on my desk so I embossed and punched them to finish it up. Of course, even with a Stamp-a-ma-jig, I still stamped my sentiment crooked, so I restamped, cut & popped it up.
I wanted to share with you something I received in the mail from my friend Nika in Russia. It just goes to show how the web can bring people together who would NEVER be able to meet each other in person! She has a women's ministry in her area and they do sewing, stamping and crafts while she shares God's word to them. She has two beautiful daughters and the Lord just blessed her family with a very chubby little baby boy!!! You can see him (and the rest of her blog) here. Anyway, her gift was a nice card, a lovely tea towel and a bar of chocolate (which is long gone):
I want to show you a closeup of the package of chocolate:
and a picture of Cassidy from before Christmas:
A bit of a resemblance, don't you think?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and be sure to come back tomorrow for the Paper Players challenge!!
