Have you been to Angel's blog, Angelosity? She's having a birthday countdown celebration! Each day for 31 days Angel will share a card sketch, a card and a treat to go in her blog candy basket, which she will be awarding to one lucky winner on her birthday. How generous is that! You can check out the full details here.
When I got home from work today, I had a package from eP! Inside was the MFT Boho Blossoms and Basic Grey Scarlet's Letter paper I had ordered! I can't tell you how much I wanted to drop everything and go stamp, but the empty cabinets and dirty laundry were calling.
After a trip to the grocery, dinner, several loads of laundry and some time with the hubby and kids, I decided to break in my new stamps by joining Angel's party and completing a few of her sketches from this past week.
I chose to use Boho Blossoms and the Scarlet's Letter paper for all 3 of the sketches I did. Here's Sketch #1. This one took a bit of thinking, mainly because I went with just black and white and I don't do that much. In fact, I found myself surprised by how many different styles of black, white and gray ribbon I have!
Next is a card for Sketch #3. I took a bit of creative liberty with this one and got a little carried away with bling, but I couldn't help myself. ;)
Last, but not least, a card for Sketch #5. This one is for my hubby. He's such a stinker! (And so sweet!) He made a visit to my blog and saw the anniversary card I made for him, so I thought I would make him another one.
This is my favorite of the Angel's sketches so far. It fits a #10 envelope, so it measures 4' x 8 1/2" when folded. I have to say, I love this card. It came together just the way I wanted it to. :)
Looking forward to a fantastic weekend. Today (Saturday) Justin has IMEA auditions, Chris and I have a date and Josh is going to the Corn Maze with some friends. Sunday brings church, a parade that Justin is in and a trip to the Orchard and Corn Maze with Jacob and Sarah. It's the wee hours of the morning, so I'm going to say goodnight. If you have some time this weekend, go say hi to Angel. Thanks so much for visiting!
