I have been busy trying to clean up some of my Scrap Room! Yuck! About the time I get something picked up and put up, I find something else that sparks a bit of mojo and I am pulling stuff out again. I truly believe it is a never ending story! I am trying to keep the mojo flowing and stay up with challenges. I have created a couple of cards I wanted to post.
First I want to wish a Happy Birthday to my dear friend Armetha! I have been working on a gatefold card for a challenge going on at The Outlawz in their Twisted Thursday. I can't tell you how many creations I ditched before deciding on this one. A big part on having such a hard time developing this card is that it is for Ametha's Birthday and I wanted something to let her know how special she is to me. I started out with some designer paper from Stampin' Up. My stamp is from Whimsy Stamps their Summer Garden Sentiment Collection. I stamped the Carousel Horse with Momento black ink and colored it up with my Copics. The sentiment on the front of the card is from the same stamp set stamped with Versamark Ink and sprinkled with white embossing powder with a little glitter added and heat embossed for a blingy look. The Happy Birthday Stamp is from Inkadinkado Best Wishes set stamped with Versamark and embossed with Stampin' Up's melon mambo embossing powder. I just love how it came out and hopefully Armetha will too!
Another challenge at The Outlawz is for Sunday's CAS (clean and simple) challenge. I tried to think of something that truly makes me happy and came up with my Copic Markers. I colored up this image Copica from Saturated Canary and added some happy colors. My sentiment is computer generated and I colored it with my Copics.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog! As always I welcome your comments as they truly make my day!
