Hi everyone! Happy JULY! It's time for a new challenge from As You See It, and this week we have a sketch...and it has THREE elements, my favorite!
The leader of our TOPS weight-loss group is going to be a very youthful-looking 70 years old in a couple of days, so this sketch worked perfectly for a card for her! Here we go:
Those gorgeous flowers from Hues of Happiness were easy as pie to dicut and layer on a panel of Basic White that had been embossed with the Timeword Type embossing folder. Before embossing it, I lightly stamped the number "70" using a Tim Holtz number day and added the happy directly over top of it in Starry Sky ink. I layered that all on a piece of plaid Coastal Cabana DSP and as a final embellishment, added some sequins and vellum leaves that were embossed with White craft ink:
Two sentiments from Happiness Abounds were stamped on the inside, as well as a rose outline; I love how these fonts work together!
Our design team has some fabulous samples for you to check out and to give you some inspiration! I hope you'll check them out and play with our sketch this week! See you at As You See It!
Another of Cassidy's baking achievements....this was also a box mix (we'll graduate to scratch one of these days) and she managed to do 99% of it without my help! She made chocolate chip cookies with cookie dough filling and sprinkles around the outside! They were DELICIOUS! Of course, we have to have a little fun while they're baking:
Getting the hang of an offset spatula:
The final product! Let me tell you...they were amazing!
Thanks for popping in today! Enjoy it and be blessed!
