I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

What's the Scoop?

Happy, happy Friday to all,

A very slow work day for me today and I'm not sorry one bit. I had some house chores to do this morning (paying bills, it's always so fun-not!), and a few actual work e mails to answer. After having lunch with Mr Personal Chef at this little mediterranean food bistro, I decided to do some stamping. I needed to get my weekend stamping fix in early because I will be flying to Northern Calif tomorrow for the weekend to attend my Aunt's memorial. My mom's older sister passed a few weeks ago. Always a sad time.

Using Linda's Freshly Made Sketch, and the colors from the current Global Design Project I made this card. When I saw Linda's sketch on Wednesday, I knew immediately what I wanted to use for the vertical element, and the GDP colors worked so well for my idea.

I tried keeping my card fairly CAS. Just a little Twinkle Twinkle DSP with small scalloped borders. The only embellishment is that sweet little puffy heart sticker.

I didn't stamp a greeting on the inside, thinking this would make a good note card for any occasion.
I did use the new SU Stitched Rectangle set to cut a frame from Soft Sea Foam card stock and stamped that sweet little cherry at the bottom.

I'm going to try and get one more card done tonight. I still need to pack, but that shouldn't take too long.

Thanks for coming by and have a great weekend!
