Thanks So Much!

June 10, 2011

Happy Friday, everyone!!  I hope you have had a wonderful day so far!!  I have been editing some photos today, and also going through all of my photos from Africa and trying to get them organized so I can actually post them online finally.  I will let you know when I post them, but I imagine it will be next week some time. 

I have a card to share with you today.  It is my card for CPS Sketch #220 that I haven't posted yet...I had too much going on last week and never found a time for it.  So, I am finally posting it now!  My card also fits CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #6, which is a Tic Tac Toe board!!  You pick a row of items, and they have to be used on your card.  I picked the row with gems/dies or punches/flowers.  It also fits Pals Paper Arts #97, to showcase your signature style. 
"Thanks So Much!" supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper: Glitz Deisgn (Love Nest: Damask & Hoopla: Frames) 
Stamps: Gina K Designs (The Giving Tree set)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: dune, turquoise, dusty plum, chestnut)
Trim: Maya Road (flower) & craft supply (crocheted)
Twine: Darice Inc.
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Corner Punch: Creative Memories

Intructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock.  Cut pink damask paper slightly smaller, and adhere to the card front.  Round the corners of an aqua paper block, and just the top corners of a vintage cream cardstock block.  Layer the two together, then stamp the tree image & sentiment to it.  Adhere the entire stamped block to the card front.  Add a strip of crocheted lace and floral ribbon over top of the seam.  Tie a bow from twine and adhere it to the second flower on the ribbon strip.  Accent the stamped bird's nest and the bow middle with pearls to finish.

In other photography news, I posted a maternity session that I did on my business blog this week!!  It is my first maternity shoot, and would love to hear what you think!  Just click on the photo and it will take you to the blog post....leave me a comment there if you have a moment as I would love to hear your thoughts!! 
Well, that is all I have to share with you today!!  I hope that you have a wonderful weekend...and hopefully I will get a chance to create so I can post over the weekend!!  ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
