WSC #50 -- Thinking of you

I haven't had the chance for a few weeks to participate in Beate's Weekend Sketch challenges. So I was excited that we didn't have any major plans for the weekend and that I might have some crafting time.

I've been trying to be a frugal crafter of late, using mostly my stash for creative materials. But there was a sale this weekend at the little scrapbook store in Port Saint Lucie, FL (just down the road from where I live) and I had to go in and support them. During this visit I found the fun designer paper that I used in today's card.

I had had every intention of following Beate's design to the letter (so to speak), but when I got to stamping my sentiment on the one panel on this card, it just didn't fit!!! So everything literally got turned on the side at the last minute. But I like the final card; the colors are NOT my norm, but it's good to get outside of the mono-tone box once in awhile?!?

Materials: white cardstock: Georgia Pacific; pink cardstock: Bazzill; designer paper: Bo Bunny; stamps: Studio G; ink: Colorbox; white grosgrain ribbon: Michaels; adhesive: Pioneer mounting tape.

Thanks for looking.

Love this!

The paper is wonderful, haven't seen that one before ... now I NEED it, LOL!

I've put myself on a strict no-DP-buying restriction until I start to use what's in my five foot tall tower of DP. I have a problem ...

Anywho, you aren't being bothered by the fire up there, are you?!? Something like 18,000 acres are on fire?!? Omigosh, we'res the "rain" in "rainy season," huh?!?

~Hugs, Deb
