It rained allllll day. Not even a little break. I was holed up in the Store and made sure that I got in a lot of crafty time! Some more Lawn Fawn came in so I entered that. My friend Lori came by to pick up some stuff and I spoke to a bunch of peeps on FaceTime and the phone. Dinner with the ‘rents when I got home and then Jim came by and we ran to the supermarket to get a few last minute things for the party tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, I decided that I’m going to go on the bus to the Stamp Show in Allentown with The Ink Pad. I’ll get to see my buddy Jane! I’m sure that it will be a good time! I’ll let you know if I find any goodies! 😀

One of my projects yesterday is my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

I played with some more new Concord & 9th goodies! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I stamped the lines from the Concord & 9th Love You Always Photopolymer Stamp Set in Fresh Lilac across the top of my card base. The flower is from the Concord & 9th Pretty Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set. It’s stamped in Fresh Lavender for the base and Sugarplum for the petals using my MISTI so I could triple stamp it. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out, to get the petals perfectly placed I used the negative as a template and curled the ends of them to give them little dimension. The center is a piece of Black cut out with one of the other dies from the set and it’s adhered with a 3D Foam Square. All that was left to do was to stamp the greeting, also from the Pretty Petals Set, in Black Licorice. I love that nice big bold flower and there are so many different way that you can stamp it! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for stopping by! Have a sensational Saturday! 🙂
