Just for you


Wow two posts in two days- I think I'm getting back in the groovel - lets hope it stays that way Hehehehe ;} - does that sound very 70's  'cause that's a bit of how I feel with this card-

I just couldn't go past this cute unscripted sketch- I had so many ideas running through my head when I saw it I didn't know where to start- thanks for helping me get my mojo back-Although I'm not totally happy with it I think it would be a cute card just to give someone just to say hi or something for everyday use not a special occasion like a  birthday.   I had fun doing the background for it as I used all sorts of jar/bottle bottoms and lids dipped in ink pads and stamped onto the card stock I think it sort of looks funky but that's just my opinion.

I cut a couple of tiny hearts in half to make the leaves for the flowers and used some ribbon for the stems not that you can really tell in this picture but this was the best one I took and because it is so dark and gloomy here at the moment-we are expecting another big rain/thunder storm any time.

This card is actually for two challenges the UNSCRIPTED SKETCHES #69 – WITH A PIGGYBACK CHALLENGE - I tried several ideas for the flowers and decided on hearts and I may even do another with something else I'm thinking of but it won't be in time for the challenge I don't think and the JUGS #47 - A Color Challenge

Cardstock- a generic card packet I bought from somewhere ages ago- sorry can't remember where or the brand but it was just one of those multiple card packets that are reasonably cheap- I seem to use a lot of them and they are great for when I need a card in a hurry.

Papers-Kaiser craft Utopia Collection and Hey Birdie Collection-which is sort of appropriate as I used a bird for the card although I didn't realize it at the time I was choosing my papers.

Stamp- Grace Taylor; Sentiment- I'm unsure where this came from I think it was a clear set that I got from a discount store a while ago but I like it and you will probably see it used a lot.

Inks-Archival Ink -Jet Black;  I have some generic stamp pads I bought when I was first starting my card making many many years ago and they have so many colours and don't seem to dry out that much either -I have put a drop of water in a couple just to regenerate them and they work ok now. I don't know who made them but I think I bought them from K Mart there were so many colours I think I bought about 15 of them and they are sort of like Versa Inks in size but not them just a cheap version. I used Aqua,Light green and Hot Pink-these are my names for them they didn't actually come with colours written on them.

Other- Embossing Powder-Judi Kins- Black Detail; Colours-Whispers Brush Markers,Ribbon-Sullivans Double sided satin; Punch- Fiskars 1" squueze punch circle, Hearts- three different sizes- unsure of brand; Jewels-stash; Glue- Helmar 450; Double sided tape and mounting tape.

Hope you enjoyed
