Are you tired of me yet?
2 posts in one day!!????!! I know - I don't know what has come over me!! I came home a couple of hours ago and was soooo happy to be done this week - what a week it's been! I was so happy to be home, that I made a cup of chai and had a chance to sit at my craft table before the dinner rush starts (which it will in about 15 minutes - so I will type fast!!!)
I loved the color challenge that Julee has for her Verve color challenge for the April release and I love Kazan's Sketch #24 that she has created for the 2Sketches4You challenge blog. I love Laura and Kazan's sketch challenge and their DT is just amazing with the samples that they come up with each week! Talk about inspiration city! They are currently having a DT call for the summer group - and you can check out the details for the DT call here!
One of my dear friends is having a birthday party on Sunday and I wanted to make a birthday card for him... and I thought these colors were so perfect for a masculine card... and who doesn't like cupcakes for their birthday card??! But try as I might, I think my card ended up kinda girly and swirly... (I don't think I can ever realllllllly make a masculine card because it never really looks very .... hmm.. what's the word??..... pretty! lol!!) Oh, well - I gave up trying to make it look masculine at one point and just had fun paper piecing my cupcakes! Well, I hope he likes it anyway... :) (Will let you guys know how it goes on Monday :)
Paper: From scrap stash (the only thing that I know is that the blue paper is handmade)
Ink: Chocolate Chip! SU!, Martha brown
Stamps: Downtown Diva set for the cupcakes and Sweet Celebration set for the sentiment from the Taylored Expressions store
Accessories: liquid pearls, corner rounder, button from stash, blinged flowers
Technique: Paper piecing
Well, I hope you are all having a great start to your weekend! Okay.. off to get dinner started! Hope you are all doing well!!!
