Did you all have a nice weekend?

I had to work Saturday, so it was just so so.

I did have time to make a card…but that was back on Friday night.

Just using some more Earth love paper and enjoying some Papertrey Ink stamps.

I didn’t really care for this card at first.

That’s why I didn’t post it right away.

The more I look at it the better I like it though.

Oh yeah, I made a couple bookmarks too.

I saw this idea in the Papertrey Ink newsletter on Friday.

Quick & simple!

Do you want to know what else I did this weekend?

I finally got started organizing my craft room!

I spent all day transferring my clear and cling back stamps to cd cases.

The binders were just not cutting it.

I think I have it all done, except for one set of Hero Arts stamps that I was using recently.

They must be hiding on my desk somewhere!

I Love Earth Love

January.21.2010

I was talking to my crafty internet friend, Katy early today.

I gave her an assignment.  I told her she either had to make a baby card using her Basic Grey chipboard stickers or she could make a Valentine.

Haha.

I’m the boss.

She told me I had to make a birthday card and I had to use my Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper pack.  I wanted it soooo bad, then I got it for Christmas and hadn’t opened it before tonight.

When I was blog surfing today I saw a sketch challenge over on the Limelight blog.  They were also trying to get everyone to incorporate canvas into their projects.

So here’s what I made:

I cut that piece of Ranger sticky-back canvas out with my handy Cuttlebug and the Label 4 Nesties.  Then I inked it up with some Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink.

After that I stamped the border with a Waltzingmouse stamp using some new Papertrey Ink ink that I just got today.  I love it!  Then I stamped the flower image from Unity Stamp Co. with some brown Memento ink.  I colored the little leaves in with a Copic marker.  It bled a little bit, but you can’t really tell.

The sentiment is from Through the Trees by Papertrey Ink (I HAD to play with my new toys!)

As I did in the last card I shared, I put a sentiment inside this one too.  I stamped the Unity flower again and then added a sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages by Papertrey Ink.

Just so you know, I love this card!  LOL  Aren’t the colors so calm and soothing?
