Look at that! I'm back....AGAIN!!! This time with an early August birthday card.
I took advantage of a big sale recently at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and compounded my savings with a coupon I had saved from when I purchased the Going Places set. I picked up a BUNCH of stamps - a BIG bunch. There was one in particular which I HAD TO HAVE to make a birthday card for my dearly beloved's sister.
Not only is she the mother of two and a hard-working police officer - she is EXCEPTIONALLY fit. She teaches boot camp fitness classes and has been known to take part in marathons AND triathlons. So it was with a little tongue in cheek that I made this card for her birthday this year...
and on the inside "You've just been young a LONG time!" (funny since my dearly beloved is the oldest of all his siblings). And then I wrote our own personal message "it's about time you caught up to the rest of us"..... :)
- finished size: 5.5 x 5.5 inches, white cardstock base
- patterned papers: Echo Park Paper Co "Playground" (I thought the bunting banner paper was perfect with this image)
- stamped sentiment: Little Paper Shop (I don't think they are in business any longer)
- stamped image: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps - Carol. Coloured with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E31, E35, E39, E47, R85, BG000, BG01, BG02, B39)
- layout: Feeling Sketchy Week #16 (too late to enter for the challenge but I liked the layout)
- CTMH brads (holiday red)
additional challenges for this card:
- kraftin' kimmie #139: Bright Colours for summer (I thought the bright banner paper was perfect for this challenge)
- shopping our stash #61: Something new (this stamp is SO new - got it last Friday in the mail - that it had not yet been put onto EZ mount. I had to DO that before I could actually use it. The sentiment that comes with the image STILL hasn't been mounted.....)
Thanks for stopping by! That rounds out the last of the cards I made yesterday.....
