My poor, neglected blog! I have not posted anything new on here for a while. I was beginning to feel bad about it but then realized that, while it brings me (and hopefully you), some happiness, it is not crucial to world peace or anything ; ) Either way, I am glad to be sharing some of what I have been making lately! I was in a very crafty mood this past weekend and spent a bit of time in my craft room. I had several cards that I wanted to make so it was card making day! Here are the fruits on my labor, photographed in poor lighting (I had to take a photo before I could mail them out and it was evening)!
This card was inspired by a sketch at Sweet Peach Crop Shop. The card turned out a bit differently than the sketch but I fell in the love with it anyway! My first time using washi tape! My kids thought that it looked like bicycle tracks! I loved the vintage feel of it. I used Basic Grey Hopscotch for this card, as well as some i-rock gems and Pebbles rub-ons.
These cards were made based off a card that I had seen online (I can't recall where), using the doily in this way. I loved the look and actually made an anniversary card for my parents similar to this one but I forgot to photograph it before I mailed it! It was fun to make each card personal in its own way.
I had to use up the remainder of the doilies in some way so I created this pretty little Christmas tree with them. I love spending the holidays with my family so I mailed this one out to my parents as an early Christmas card.
For my last card, I used my woodgrain embossing folder and embossed some kraft paper. I then used one of the cute little Lawn Fawn stamps that I won to stamp the sweet little bird. I colored him in with my Bic Fine Tip markers (which I also won a while ago) and made a little hole for him to peek through. I kind of love it : )
Thank you for stopping by today. I have a few layouts that I'd like to post too. So, who knows, perhaps I will post more than one thing this week! I hope that you are getting in the holiday spirit! I know I am!
