Great Impressions Stamps - Hi!

Today I’m sharing a card that I made using Help From Your Friends (G78) from Great Impressions Stamps.  Aren’t these critters cute? 


2013-01-21 GI Friends WM


I decided to use some nice, warm colors  and move away from using red.  With Christmas and Valentine’s Day, I feel like I have been using red on almost every project lately. 

I couldn’t quite get the colors correct in the photo.  The mat, “Hi” and ribbon are all a warm grey that coordinates with the DP.    They look slightly olive on my screen.    I didn’t have quite the right color ribbon, so I colored it with my Copic markers so that it coordinated better.

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.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
