Home Sweet Home 39

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, July 10, 2010 @ 2:36 AM | , , ,

Hi There! My hubby & I arrived in Phoenix yesterday afternoon :) We spent the entire day & night catching up on necessary activities of daily living that we had escaped for 10 days! I wanted to say thanks so much to all of you who visited my blog & left such sweet comments especially on my vacation photos - I can't tell you who much I truly appreciate you taking the time to do that :) I am trying really hard to find my crafty MOJO so I pulled out some of my favorite products & had some fun.

This card is a "hodge podge" of sorts - I used all scraps left over from recent projects.

I inked up images from 3 different awesome stamp companies & paired each of them with a Spellbinders™ die template :) In case you were wondering which die template coordinated with each stamped image here are the details : The beautiful pinking border that is stamped in black is an image from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Very Vintage Labels No.3 set paired with a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-189 Labels Three die template. The darling decorative square image that is stamped with SU Tempting Turquoise ink is from the JustRite Stampers Applique Decorative Border & Center set paired with a S4-126 Classic Squares LG die template & the image the pretty Thank You sentiment is from the Flourishes Flourished Words Stamp Set paired with a S4-190 Labels Four die template.

It is after 2:30 am here in Phoenix so I really need some sleep! It is going to be a busy crafting weekend, actually make that a 2 weeks for me as I complete necessary projects. So if I am quiet you'll know why :)

Thanks so much for looking! Have a great weekend!

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Very Vintage Labels No.3, JustRite Stampers Applique Decorative Border & Center, Flourishes Flourished Words Stamp Set
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Stampin' Up, Ranger
Other: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities S4-189 Labels Three, S4-126 Classic Squares LG, S4-190 Labels Four, W-001 The Wizard™, Prima Rose, lace, brad & stick pin from stash
