Notes and Fresh Air

Hey guys! I have been MIA for about a week. Last week was so busy for me because my kids had a summer music and arts camp that I volunteered at, and they had their championship city swim meet over the weekend. It was great, but I got almost zero time for me and about as much sleep! I was running on coffee! In other news, I have been participating in the unofficial July Disneybound challenge, which is almost over, (if you don't know what disneybounding is, look it up!), and I've almost finished my 4th round of Whole30 (look that up too!)! This has been a challenging month, but you know me, I love challenges. So it's been great and I feel great.

I got tons of sleep last night, and I didn't have to get up early, so I took some time this morning and made this card. It is for Atlantic Hearts, Heart 2 Heart, and Color My Heart.

For the Duly Noted theme at Heart 2 Heart, I cut the notebook paper sheet out with the Artbooking cartridge, and I stamped it with the stamp from Take Note. The arrow and the note circle were also cut out with Artbooking and stamped with the Take Note stamp set. The flourish is from Wonderland WOTG stamp set, and the sentiment is from Card Chatter -Love. The colors I used are Whisper, Baby Pink, and Glacier.

Materials used:
Cardstock:Whisper, Baby Pink, White Daisy
Stamps: Take Note, Wonderland WOTG, Card Chatter - Love
Ink: Baby Pink, Glacier
Other: Artbooking Cricut cartridge

I made this card last week with the sketch at Atlantic Hearts and for the Fresh Air challenge at Heart 2 Heart, but I never found the time to photograph it until today. I used some old stuff from the Twitterpated paperpack, and the felt shapes that went along with it.

Materials used:
Cardstock: White Daisy, Chocolate, Crystal Blue
B&Ts: Twitterpated
Stamps: Catch You Later
Ink: Chocolate
Other: Color Ready Kraft Borders, felt shapes

  9. These are both great cards, Sarah. I love mixing up products from different kits, and I especially love finding new uses for kits I've had on hand for awhile. Great use of sketches, too. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
