SUO Challenges 121

Does it seem like the days just melt into one another for you or is it just me?! Time is just moving along at a rapid pace! It was sunny and not too windy today which was nice. We are supposed to get back up into the 70’s later in the week! Top down weather is just around the corner! Last night after dinner Taylor came home with me and she made a card in the kitchen while I Skyped with Andrea and crafted in the Stampin’ Galley. We ran to Michaels to pick up a container to put a bunch of my cards in for Bill to pick up tomorrow and donate for a raffle prize. Taylor has been making a lot of cards lately and I think that I mentioned that she is going to start a blog of her own. However, we are having a little trouble coming up with a name for it so I thought who better to ask than you guys?! You helped me with the name of my craft space! If you have an idea for a name please leave a comment! Thanks in advance for your help!

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our Mother’s Day challenge. It’s coming up so this will be a perfect excuse to get started a little early! My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. I adhered a strip of paper from the Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper Pack off center to the left. For the tag I used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch on some more Whisper White. I stamped the flower from the Lotus Blossom Photopolymer Stamp Set in Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, the stem is Pear Pizzaz and Mossy Meadow. A piece of Hemp Cord is tied through the top and left extra long. The tag is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped my greeting from the Crazy About You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark on Sahara Sand and heat embossed it in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A combination of Stampin’ Dimensionals and SNAIL adhere them to the card. I love the simplicity of the card and I think the Lotus Blossom looks really cool in those soft muted colors! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges Mother’s Day challenge! Head on over to the blog and check out the rest of the Design Team’s projects and upload your Mother’s Day project to the gallery! Thanks for stopping by for a visit today, I look forward to seeing your ideas for a blog name for Taylor! Have an amazing Tuesday! 🙂
