AYSI174 Something I Borrowed

Happy Friday, peeps!  It's time for another As You See It challenge!  Here's a fun one:  Something I Borrowed!  Yikes!

No automatic alt text available.

I have so many stamps, I rarely borrow anything!!  But I did borrow this stamp set from my sister (another one from 1997!) called Bees and Blossoms; I always loved it and she rarely stamps any more, even though she does raise bees!  So my luck!  Here is my notecard-sized creation:

I used the challenge from House of Cards for this month too, which is to use the colors and/or florals in a corner, and I used the flowers in a corner:

I first stamped the honeycomb image several times on Crumb Cake cardstock with Sahara Sand ink, then stamped the flower image with Memento ink and colored it with my blends.  I stamped the bee skep on the Crumb Cake and again on a scrap of Crushed Curry, colored and cut it out, then adhered it on top of the original image with dimensionals:


I added a little ribbon of Crushed Curry and some subtle sequins, then stamped the sentiment at the top:

I need a card for an upcoming birthday for I think I'll add a sentiment to the inside for that special someone!

I hope you'll show us something that you "borrowed" and created a card's fun to have stamping friends who are willing to share things! If you don't have any borrowed stamps, maybe it's a borrowed idea...use your imagination and share it with us at As You See It!

Every day after school we make popcorn in my old air popper:

Sometimes we look at the popcorn to see if we can see shapes or animals in it:

I thought this one looked a wee bit like a crab:

And Cassidy thought that this looked like a hippo; or maybe there's a lion's face in there?!

Anyway, it doesn't last long enough to be critiqued too much...she gobbles it up!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Popcorn doesn't last long enough to look for shapes 'round here, LeAnne! but I like the way you and Cassidy think!
I also ADORE this little sentiment you've borrowed... bee-U-tiful! and OH that font! a darling card...

I have always read clouds, but never let the popcorn sit long enough to discover what could be seen in it. Good idea, next time I pop some with my air popper, I may entertain myself.

I'm loving these old stamp sets that you are using! Great card!

Vickie said...

Love this card....and LeAnne love all that you do with me you are building the best of the best memories...for her..memories that she will treasure...My 17 year old granddaughter remembers so many of them...when all is said and done memories are what we have left....I agree with your crab and hippo...what a fun idea...ummm....perhaps it will slow down the eating of those animals...

This is such a pretty card! The images are great but my favourite part is the honeycomb background. So sweet!

Linda Callahan said...

Lisa Elton said...

We just had popcorn tonight and it didn't last long enough for shapes...maybe next time! I love your card. The flowers are so sweet and what a great design!
