Enjoy

Hey there ladies!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

I want to share a card with you I created using the inspiration photo from Moxie Fab's
Tuesday Trigger

and The Play Date Cafe

For the TT I'm going with the colors but when I saw the utensils I thought 'bon apetit'. And since I don't have a stamp with that sentiment I used 'enjoy'.
So, I cut the banners from Glitz French Kiss design papers. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

 
 
All cardstock and the button are from Papertrey Ink. I used pumice stone and antique linen disterss inks. The seam binding ribbon is from Etsy. The crochet trim and twine are from Joanns. I scattered some gems from Recollections.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Bless your nest

Good morning crafters!

How are you today?

I'm a little blah....I stepped on the scale last night and....well, I have to go back on a diet. Yuk!!
Diet and exercise are just not my cup of tea. I'm typing this and eating a Pepperidge Farm cookie...see what I mean!

Any how, I'm sharing a card I created using the color palette from Colour Q

and the sketch from Retro Sketches
Here is my card...


Cardstock, stamps, buttons and kraft ink are all Papertrey Ink. Black ink is Hero Arts. I used Copic Markers in shades R29, B21 and G24. I used a fine point black marker to draw the frame. The twine is from Joanns.
