My vacation is winding down and I have been strangely absent from my stamp room for the last few days. I thought I'd have lots of time to get inky while off from work, but other things seem to have taken up a lot of my time this past week, Thanksgiving included. But I did manage to get some crafting time in last night making a card for the Color Throwdown and Sketch Saturday challenges (I chose sketch #223).
I recently picked up some patterned paper at TJMaxx for a ridiculously cheap price. Lord knows I didn't need any more but it was a bargain and I was weak! I've been dying to use it ever since so I took the opportunity presented by the layers in the sketch to use some of it. The color challenge called for some silver to I die cut this deer from Silver Glimmer paper because in the fantasy land that is my stamp room deer are also silver (as well as being the boring light brown ones I find eating the plants in my garden).
I wanted to share one more photo with you about this card. I was setting up to photograph it and as I was adjusting the settings on my camera, someone wandered into the shot.
Talk about nosy!
Thanks for stopping by!
