Wool You Be Mine?

Hola Chicas!

I’ve got a quick post today, as my dear, sweet, NON-COMMUNICATIVE husband informed me this morning that we’re headed out of town TODAY rather than tomorrow, as I had originally thought.  So, needless to say I have a few things to take care of before we hit the road.  Ugh!  I had such big plans for today, including doing some fun stamping.  Guess that’ll have to wait until we get home on Monday.

Wool You Be Mine

This is for another super fun CARDS Magazine Blog Challenge – which is to create a “punny” card.  And once again it has inspired me to ink up another one of my never used Papertrey Ink sets called “My Punny Valentine.”  Instead of using the scalloped oval stamp provided in the set, I cut out a scalloped oval using some PTI wool felt.  It cut on my Cuttlebug like a dream!!  The finished size of this sweet little cutie is 4.25” x 4.25” – don’tcha just love little mini cards?!!!  I do!!  I was also inspired by one of Maren's sketches (on pg. 46) from the Paper Crafts Go-To Sketches issue.  Such an amazing resource when you're stumped for a layout!!

STAMPS:  My Punny Valentine (Papertrey Ink)
INK:  Versamark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Kraft CS (PTI), Bitty Dots DP (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Circle Classic Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Pure Poppy Buttons (PTI), White Scrapper’s Floss (Karen Foster), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Bitty Button (Stampin’ Up!), Black and White Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts), White Wool Felt (PTI), Gingham Ribbon (PTI)

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope your holiday weekend is fun and restful.  God Bless all our troops for always protecting our freedoms!
