Hey everyone! I cannot tell you how often I make a card based on a sketch but I never manage to get pictures taken and posted in time to actually enter my card. Well....this time I did it! This past year I have just fallen in love with MFT Stamps and Dienamics. I cannot get enough of them, and I use them on just about every card I make these days. For this card, I used the Guest Designer Sketch for January as inspiration for my Dad's Birthday Card. The colours are MFT Steel Grey, Sweet Tooth and CTMH Heavenly Blue and I just love them with the Bo Bunny Powder Mountain Papers. You'll be seeing more of this combo in the coming weeks.
This was the first time that I was able to use the Fancy Flourish Die with success...because I now how the Metal Adapter Plate for my Cuttlebug. What a difference a little piece of metal can make! It was also the first time that I used my Beautiful Bows Dienamics.
On the inside of my card, I re-stamped the image along with a fun birthday sentiment. I don't always finish the inside of my cards, but this one just called for it and I'm so glad that I did.
We're having a family dinner for my Dad's Birthday today (Sunday) and then there are only two days left until my parents are off again travelling in their RV. It's been a nice visit, but I know they want to get back to where the weather is warm and the sun is shining. I don't blame them. :-)
The kids are back to school tomorrow as well, so its back to the routine. I've really, really enjoyed these last two weeks off with my kids. I learn so much from them every day.
