Oh hey there!
I thought I’d pop in today to share a few more Congrats cards I made. I’ve been making some cards to enter into the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol 2011 contest. Not that I think I have even the slightest chance of winning, but it’s worth a shot, right? Have you entered any yet? The open call ends on Monday, I think, so you still have some time!
This one has a more collage-y feel to it with all the elements grouped together like that. And in case you haven’t noticed, I seem to be partial to white card bases lately.
For the sheet music background I inked up my stamp and then wiped off some of the ink in areas so it would just kind of fade into the background.
This one uses bits and pieces of some of my very favorite papers and rub-ons. I inked all the edges with black ink for a more shabby, edgy feel. This is one of my favorites.
Tiny little squares of goodness, kind of like an art quilt of fun little squares.
Chloe and I have had a fun week, albeit, a quiet one, with her brothers gone. We went swimming yesterday and today she played so very quietly with her teddy bears all morning long. This afternoon we ate lunch at the park and spent time at the library. Tonight she, her daddy, and I are heading off to Barnes & Noble for some book reading and a cookie from Starbucks.
She’s so looking forward to having her brothers back, and so am I! I can’t wait to hear all about their adventures at camp.
Hope you’re having a lovely day!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
