Sick or not......I had to ink something up!!!!



I couldn't stand it any longer, I had to get back into my crafting room and make some cards! Talk about stamper withdrawals.....I was going nuts. lol I made three cards today and I can't tell you how many times I messed up or destroyed paper before I was pleased with anything. I think I was "over anxious" to create, I had to stop and think about what I wanted to do and plan the details out. I hate destroying pretty papers.....makes a woman want to cry. lol

This card is for Julee of Poetic Artistry Sketch Challenge #25 I used the sentiment stamps that I won from Verve Visual on this card. The sentiments are perfect for various occasions i.e. Mothers Day, graduations, birthdays and anniversary's just to name a few!


card stock: Papertrey Ink Stampers Select White and Bazzill
patterned paper: DMD (I brought the 8X8 pad at Target on the clearance rack)
stamp: Lockhart Company
sentiment: Verve Visual
inks: Adirondack Pitch Black, Impress Emerald Green and Copic Markers
tools: paper pierce tool, window punch, Stickles and ribbon is from Michael's

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

note: I don't know why the Baby Breath Flowers are showing up so dark..IRL they are sparkly.
