About Me

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

Happy, Happy, Happy

Hey all,

How's your weekend been? I just got home from a house/dog sitting gig that started Wednesday. The house that I was "sitting" has a great backyard with a pool. Needless to say, I took advantage of that.

I decided to take a break from Christmas cards and make a birthday card. I haven't had a chance to play in Linda's Catered Crop Recipe Swap for awhile, so I pulled out some Washi tape that I purchased a few years ago and got busy. Love the title of this challenge, "Washi's Up Recipe Swap." Linda is SO clever, not to mention a fab artist! This is a pretty simple card, and I rather like the way it turned out.

Stamps: Taylored Expressions Bikes and Trikes Set
Paper: TE Choice Snow White, SU Pumpking Pie and More Mustard card stock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Other: Washi Tape, scalloped circle and classic circle Nesties, SU black ribbon, Want 2 Scrap black pearls, corner rounder punch, the Big Shot, and dimensionals

I leave for two weeks on Tuesday. First to Delaware for work and then to Northern California for a visit with my mom and sister. Probably not much stamping during this time, but I'll be checking in with my list of blogging friends. Have a great Sunday evening and thanks all,
