Every Good & Perfect Gift . . .

Hey Stamping Friends!

I have a quick post before I head out to the airport this morning.  I’m on my way to AZ for a few days to get some much needed sunshine and to check on a few things at our house there.  I know you’ll forgive me if my posts are a bit more sporadic over the next couple of weeks as my supplies in AZ are somewhat limited.  I’ll share when I can.
Every Good and Perfect Gift
I created this sweet little card for the CARDS Blog Challenge, which is to create a monochromatic card.  I haven’t had much luck lately with the CARDS blog challenges, so I’m hoping that Paige likes this one.  A girl can only take so much rejection before she starts second guessing herself!  Hehehe  Seriously, I love Paige’s challenges – they always make me think hard and outside my usual box.  You all should try them, too – good stuff, I tell ya!  I'll also be submitting this for the Wee Memories Challenge #13, which is a "free for all" challenge. I also think I'll enter it in the Moxie Fab World Classy & Elegant card challenge.

But I digress.  I used some of my beloved LUSH designer paper from My Mind’s Eye.  I adore this DP, and will be so sad when it’s all gone.  But I’ve seen some sneak peeks of their upcoming designs, and I may just fall in love all over again!  I’m kind of fickle like that!  LOL  Back to the card – the image is from Impression Obsession and was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  The shaped panel behind the image is a shape I cut using my Pink Slice and the Remember This design card.  I sewed around the outside edge with my Janome Sew Mini.

STAMPS:  Baby Shoes (Impression Obsession), Bitty Baby Blessings (Papertrey Ink)
INK:  Versamark (Tsukineko), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
PAPER:  Blush Blossom CS (Stampin’ Up!), LUSH designer paper (My Mind’s Eye)
ACCESSORIES:  Champagne self-adhesive pearls (Kaiser Craft), Donut Hole Edger Punch (EK Success), Janone Sew Mini, Pink Slice (Making Memories), Remember This Design Card (Making Memories), Vintage Cream Satin Ribbon (Papertrey Ink), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), White Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts), Corner Rounder (EK Success)

That’s it for me today.  I’ll be back at the latest on Saturday, when I’ll share with you how I store my loose ribbon bits.  Hope you’ll stop by!
