Thanks For Being Awesome!

Hi y'all!

It's a gloomy, foggy, rainy Thursday here and I've got one of the worst sinus infections I think I've ever had.  I'm working from home today, but did get time to snap a quick pick of a card I made last night.  Here is what I created.

My friend Rochelle and I had been talking about all of the crafty stuff we own, but weren't using.  So, we decided we were going to challenge ourselves to make something last night, no matter what (operation #getchacrafton).  I have to say that even though this is simple, I love how it turned out.  I can't remember the last time I wet embossed anything, or if I've ever embossed on black cardstock. lol  I really think it looks pretty cool, as the white pops against the black.  I hope to try this again.  I will be entering this into the following challenges.

Cardabilities #109: Sketch (my loose interpretation)
Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Burlap Banner
Simon's Wednesday Challenge: Use Kraft

I'm off to do some more work, and hopefully rest a bit.  I hope everyone is having a great week, so far, and will get lots of crafty time to make stuff this weekend.

It seems everywhere I go I hear someone say they have a very bad sinus infection. Sorry and hope you are on the mend. ( I use oils and breath them in and its gone and cleared up..peppermint, lemon etc.
Love the simplicity of your heart banner over the chevron background Beautiful!

Yay for using neglected goodies! I think as papercrafters, we are all guilty of that. Our supplies seem to multiply quickly :)

I love your sweet card and banner!

Thanks for playing with us at Curtain Call!
