Thinking of You

There is a new challenge blog in town. Have you seen it? Daisy Doodles is starting their own challenge blog and their first challenge is a sketch challenge using this sketch. The challenge ends on Saturday, February 13th.


I thought I would try to play along and made this card. I made it as a "hope you feel better soon" card for a friend who has an injury. It gave me a chance to use the Clear Dollar Stamps that I won about a month ago and I haven't had a chance to use yet. I made it one evening this week when I should have been in bed. I could not get paper or ribbon placed similar to the sketch in a way I liked so I finally ended up using faux stitching.


I had crocheted this flower a few months ago when the instructions where all the rage on Splitcoast and never used it. (Did you know I have a cross reference for Stampin' Up and Close To My Heart to Copic Markers, Prismacolor pencils and DMC floss in my side bar?)

This card also fits the ABC Challenge of use something new.

Well, speaking of past my bed time..... I am going to finish up this post and head to bed. This week just wore me out and I have a busy day tomorrow.

SUPPLIES:

  • STAMPS: Pretty Perches by Clear Dollar Stamps, Woodland Whimsy by TPC Studios
  • PAPERS & CS: Stampin' Up Rose Red CS, white CS & Rose Red DP Paper Studio black CS
  • INKS: Stampin' Up Rose Red and Basic Black
  • EMBELLISHMENTS & TOOLS: Crochet flower, button, DMC floss, paper piercer
  • TECHNIQUES: Faux stitching
