Happy humpday! How has your week been? The week is half over already, but I am still enjoying my time with my family, here in the midwest. It's been nice. I've woken up to cold, crisp mornings, and highs in the low 70's (maximum), and I've slept better in the last few days than I've slept in the last few months. Although I could never live here again, it's always so refreshing to be here, visiting my mom. I almost feel as if it's good for my soul. Maybe that's kinda cheesy, but I know that I'm always so much more relaxed and revived when I get home, after a visit.
Anyway, onto why you're here. I have another card to share with you today. The theme today at Papercraft Star is:
I am in love with this photo! It reminds me of being in Colorado in the fall, when the trees look this gorgeous. Please keep in mind that the inspiration photos are always use if you choose. You don't have to incorporate it into your project, as long as you stick with the theme. Easy peasy, right? Here is what I created for this challenge.
I've had this embossed Core'dinations paper in my stash forever and thought it would be well used in this card. I'm slightly disappointed with my Stampin Up! stamps at the moment. They don't want to stick to my clear blocks. In this case, the stamp feel off my block, after I stamped my sentiment, and caused the marks above the "Thank You" on my sentiment panel. Unfortunately, I was pressed for time, and couldn't redo it. Eh, I guess it's not terrible. I added some bakers twine, at an angle, and a cute red button with a bow, and was done with it. I like it, even with the "oops". I've got another card for my stash, and I'm pretty sure this won't be the last time I have an accident like that. lol I was also able to combine the following challenges in my card today.
