Woo Hoo! Happy Monday to you, my friends!! It rained all day yesterday but that was a great excuse to stay home, play with paper and watch football!! My favorite team lost (sniff) but my second favorite team won, and so it continues next weekend!
I decided to go with the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch and then was inspired to incorporate pink into my card by the picture from Fusion. Then, still watching football, I skimmed through my 6×6 paper storage for pink paper and pulled out some stamps to ponder as well.
Finally, the creative juices were flowing and I abandoned football (sorry Payton) and got busy creating!!
What do you think?!? I fell in love with this paper! I tried adding a cardstock layer to it, but it didn’t seem to need any other color at all. I got completely lucky and found ink that matched the paper perfectly!! And the MISTI made stamping my eye chart a breeze…
Isn’t this stamp just too fun?? It’s called (strangely enough) Eye Charts and is by My Favorite Things.
I needed an embellishment to meet the requirements of the sketch and kept trying to add a cute little die cut of glasses, but it just wasn’t working for me. So instead of focusing on the eye chart, I focused on the sentiment and found this adorable matching heart and die set in the Locking Hearts Stamp & Die Set from Simon Says Stamp. They are perfect!! And too cute too…
I kept the inside simple with these hearts from the Countless Sayings II Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up!. The set is retired but has some beautiful heart stamps in it!
And just because I’m sure you want to see it again…
Yep, I love it. How about you??
Thank you so much for stopping by, I know it takes a minute to leave a comment but if you have a minute, I would really love to hear from you!! Thanks bunches!!
Wishing you joy and blessings!!
