Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #247

With only having a boy child I don't get to play with the "little girl" papers very much but we have a new little friend who's birthday party is this weekend and I got to make a girl card!  Using this week's sketch from Atlantic Hearts gave me a great prompt to get started especially given that I am not well (fever, headache, earache, etc.) and I am finding it very hard to concentrate. Products I used for this card are Canary Cardstock which I embossed with a retired embossing folder, Make Waves Paper Packet , Make Waves Sequins & Gems , the sentiment is from the Birthday Sparkles stamp set stamped in Eggplant and I used Extra Thick Twine (in 2 retired colours) for my bow.  I finished off my card by painting the background embossed ridges with both Clear and the new Bashful Shimmer Brushes . Thank you for stopping by and I hope I inspired you to come play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Happy Crafting!

Happy New Year!

I got caught in the December time warp and honestly, I don't know what happened to the past few weeks!  I actually feel like I have lost time and any other time of the year I would probably be concerned for my health and be getting a CAT scan or something!  But that being said we had a lovely holiday break with lots Christmas, friends, family, and enjoying each other. With time marching on so quickly I finally got around to using December's Stamp of the Month and it is perfect for Valentine's!  Using this week's super cute sketch from Atlantic Hearts I put together this quick Valentine's card. I started by pulling out my  watercolours and quickly putting just a few colours, mostly yellow, light blue, and greens onto a piece of white daisy cardstock.  Once dried, I stamped the image several times using Charcoal ink .  I then cut them into 1x1 squares.  The background paper is from the Whimsy Fundamentals Collection from last year and I inked the edges in Juni
