Hi Blogging Friends! I hope you all had a safe & fun weekend :) I had some "me" time so I played with some of my favorite papercrafting goodies! I am lovin' all the new My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Collection which includes this soft aqua/blue shade from the Market Street/Happy Birthday line. Rather than saving & hoarding it, I put it to good use & made a few cards for my loved ones. I think it is so romantic looking so I paired it with this beautiful embossed lacey heart image from the Waltzingmouse Seasons of Love - Tags set. For sketch inspiration, I referred to this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #12, WMSC12.Close up, you can see how well the Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-136 Classic Heart die template cuts/embosses the pretty heart image.
I was having so much fun, I made a similar Pretty in Pink version using most of the same goodness. I swapped out the DP using My Mind's Eye Market Street/Princess & Madison Avenue/Happily Ever After & the sentiment. The Waltzingmouse Seasons of Love - Tags set is full of quite a variety of images so I changed things up a bit & inked up a different sentiment that I cut/embossed using a S4-110 Classic Ovals LG die template.
Not only did I have time to create but I also had time to meet & visit Carole Beath. Carole & I somehow connected through Blogosphere!
Carole is so talented in many forms of art including papercrafting, sewing, painting, calligraphy to name a few! Here is a photo of all the homespun goodies Carole sent me home with. Carole also generously gave my sister, Tina tubs of crochet thread & yarn! I am so thrilled to have met a new friend! We are making plans to have a monthly crafty play date :)
