Thanks, PP130 and CCMC236

Monday, January 28, 2013

I had planned to be a lot more productive in my stamp room yesterday, but I've discovered that watching "How It's Made" on the Science Channel is extremely distracting to the creative process!  I mean seriously, how am I supposed to concentrate on making a card when I'm learning how bowling balls are made?  I did, however, manage to squeeze out a couple of cards one of which uses the sketch from The Paper Players and the colors from Create With Connie and Mary.




I can see that Secret Garden is fast becoming my new favorite stamp set from the mini, especially since it has those handy dies to match the images.  These flowers and leaves were inked up in the requisite colors along with the sentiment from So Many Thanks.  I meant to add some stitching to this card, but completely forgot in my haste to get it done, photographed, and posted.  So the mini sewing machine will wait a little longer before it's used again.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
