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

Tanks for everything

Hi and happy weekend,

Last night while watching the World Series game I made a card for this month's SugarPea Designs challenge. The challenge this month is to make a Thank You card. I pulled out this sweet set called "Don't Be Koi" to use. I've had it for awhile, but I've not had a chance to ink it up yet. I got stuck on how to color behind the fish bowl and decided that maybe colors should appear lighter. Not sure, but that's how I colored the images. I'm pretty happy with the end result anyway. The sketch is this week's Mojo Monday #368.

Stamps: Don't Be Koi set from SugarPea Designs
Paper: SU Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red card stock, XPress-It Blending card stock and Echo Park "Sweet Day" patterned papers
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Copics, and SU Riding Hood Red
Other: Taylored Expressions small scalloped border die, Die-namics pierced circle die, Spellbinders scalloped circle die, Queen and Co. pearls, Wink of Stella clear glitter pen, the Big Shot, and dimensional

I also want to say thanks to Wendy and the gang at SugarPea Designs. I was chosen as the October Sweet Find for this card. HOW COOL IS THAT?!!!

Later this afternoon we are going to our friend Jenny's Blog Launch party. She is writing a lifestyle blog. You can check out Cha Cha Living here.
