Sentimental Sundays - Challenge 31: A Recipe

It's Sunday so that means it is time for the new Sentimental Sunday challenge. This week we have a recipe challenge for you. We want to see your creation with 3 designer papers, 3 buttons, and a ribbon (plus a sentiment). You are free to add anything else you would like to your project as long as it includes these elements.

So here is a look at my project.




On Friday you learned of my weakness for snowmen. As soon as I saw these cute new snowmen from Whimsie Doodles I had to purchase some of them. I think I will be back to get the rest soon. (You just can't have too many cute snowmen digis.)

Once again, I made my own crinkle ribbon by coloring seam binding with my Copic markers. For more info and tips on how to do this, please see my post from Friday.

I hope you will join the Sentimental Sundays recipe challenge this week for your chance to win 4 digital sentiments sets from Raindrop Echo Designs. If you stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog, be sure top download the free weekly sentiment digis available for one week only.

Supplies:

  • Images: Cup of Tea digital stamp from Whimsie Doodles, PaperTrey Holiday Treats
  • Papers & CS: Neenah Crest solar white, GP CS, PTI Dark Chocolate, BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses paper pack
  • Inks: Close To My Heart Chocolate & Blush, Distress Ink Antique Linen
  • Tools: Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic markers
  • Embellishments: Misc buttons, DMC floss, Hug Snug rose seam binding, Tattered Angels Snow Queen glimmer mist
  • Techniques: Distressing

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.



I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)




Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
