Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Hello and welcome! It's time for another funSweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Today I have a card that I created for a special friend of mine who's going through a difficult time.
I used several different stamps on this card to give it a bit of an artsy kind of look. Most of the stamps are from Hero Arts including the Solid Heart Background stamp, Bird with branch and the All Occasions Messages. I'm in love with this new "Fabulous" My Mind's Eye designer paper pack that I used as well, it has such pretty patterns and designs you can cut up for card making or scrapbooking.
After creating my card I didn't have an envelope large enough to fit so I used a flat paper bag I had and decorated it to coordinate with the card. I used a strip of designer paper, another Hero Arts sentiment and Papertrey Ink dies to complete the envelope.
For the inside top of the card I used a PTI flower die with a Verve sentiment in the center and on the bottom portion of the card I stamped a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions stamp set Friendship Blooms (you can click on any of the pictures for a closer view).
