New Project!

Hey y'all! It's been a while! I have been engrossed with homeschooling, too much to do any paper crafting. But recently I was invited to go to a crop, and so I had to organizing my pictures and scrapbooking supplies. Well, that got me thinking, I really need to save money on all the supplies I need, so I signed up again to be a Close to My Heart consultant! I really loved doing it before and missed it.

So, I am going to start buying some of the new ink pad colors, and I will be able to participate in more of the Color Dare challenges. I'm excited about that! This week's challenge uses a lot of the colors I already own, so I didn't need to have any of the new ones yet.

For my card, I used Thistle, Pixie, Lagoon, Black, Canary, and Sweet Leaf. I'm also entering it into the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge, and the challenge at Heart 2 Heart to CASE a project from the current CTMH idea book. I haven't received my kit yet, so I had to look at the online idea book. The card I chose was on page 119 in the middle.

This is the card I cased. The top portion is embossed with Swiss dots. I used the Blossom Cardmaking Workshop stamp set to stamp the flowers on the bottom of the page using Sweet leaf, Lagoon, Thistle, Pixie, and Canary ink. I used a strip of Lagoon B&T from the Calypso paper pack. I cut the flower and leaves out by hand and used a little flower from Skylark embellishments for the center. The little bow is waxy flax. The sentiment is from Words of Comfort stamp set.

Thanks for reading my blog, and I hope to see you again soon!
