I finally got some time....or should I say made some time to stamp today. I got my card finished for the Papertrey May Guest Stamper Contest. Oh I really like how it turned out. I'll post that after the 15th. Tonight I thought I would share what I made for today's sketch challenge on Splitcoasters.....and yes it was a challenge. I had both my 3 1/2 and 2 year old helping me. Ethan wanted all of my cuttlebug scraps and Ava was into everything. I would go get some ribbon and she would then follow and bring me five more rolls. I was trying to do this while they ate supper......why don't I ever learn my lesson! My husband is gone for the day in Chicago....he took the train up for a trade show and will be back late tonight! So it's just me and the kiddos!
When I saw todays sketch, I thought of a watermelon. I have some patterned paper that I thought would be cute for the watermelon center and the seeds I used my ticket corner punch for the seeds. I think they turned out just right. The sentiment is from my computer. I've been working on my photography for my cards....what do you think?
Paper: Wild Wasabi, Rose Red DP, Barely Banana, Black (SU)
Ribbon: Wild Wasabi Striped Grosgrain, Black Gingham(SU)
Accessories: Scalloped Punch, 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches, Ticket Corner Punch (for seeds) (SU) Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and Oval and Oval Scallop Nestibilities
As always I have pictures of the kiddos. Ava is at our island eating corn....isn't she a "ham"! Ethan is at the hospital TeePeeing his room! It's a long story, but the toilet paper tubes worked well to tape together for a baseball bat! See what you do when you get bored at the hospital!
