It's a chilly and rainy first day of June here in Iowa, so we decided to stay in and bake tons of goodies. Aside from a ham, baked sweet potatoes and homemade peach cobbler, we also made cupcakes and our favorite Mexican sugar cookies (my grandmother's recipe). Talk about greatness! lol While doing laundry, and keeping up with the happenings in the kitchen, I was also able to squeeze in some time to get my craft on. I had been wanting to try a couple new challenges out there, and today was the day. Here is the card I put together.
I think this is one of the most CAS cards I've ever made. I dig! I kept wanting to add stuff to it, but in the end, I decided that less was more this time. I absolutely love the distressed blue panel with the water stamping on it. When I was in Dallas for Memorial Day weekend with my sister, I put together a couple of boxes of crafty goodness from storage, and shipped them to myself. In one box was the PTI Scattered Showers stamp set. I am sad to admit that I've had this set for over a year, and this is the first time it's seen ink. I realize now that I have a lot of stuff like that. *sigh* I guess that means I'll just have to start creating more. :o)
I've combined the following challenges in my card:
Fusion Challenge #9 - This is my take on combining both the sketch and the inspiration photo.
Inkspirational Challenge #22 - Anything Goes
WordArt Wednesday #82 - Anything Goes
Use It Tuesday #56 - Anything Goes (The stamp set I used is over 2 years old)
I do hope you're having a fabulous weekend. Hopefully, you're getting lots of craftiness done. See you guys again soon!
