Hi!

I'm back!

We were away at Kin Kamp this weekend( I'll show some pics in another post) and now I'm doing mounds of laundry.

I didn't realize its been almost a week since my last post! And although I'm tired I couldn't let two of my favourite challenges go by without doing them!

This week for CBC, we were to make a gatefold card.

Then at Use It, in addition to taking inspiration from the following picture, we were to use a tool we haven't used in over six months and some sticker letters.



So while working on decreasing the size of the mounds of laundry, I snuck down to my scrapbook room to create a card. I used a piece of scalloped bazzill, folded in three then dug through my scraps to find some blues and yellows. I layered yellow cardstock then blue embossed cardstock on both sides of the card front, then added another piece of distressed and embossed paper to the left of the card. I created a flower from a heart punch and a circle punch. The circle punch I know I haven't used in ages! Of course, I had to emboss each of the pieces I used to create the flower! I then dug into my Making Memories glitter letter stickers to add the sentiment to the centre of the flower. Finally I added some ribbon to tie it closed.




Well,I can hear the dryer beeping at me, so back to tackling those mounds of laundry.

Enjoy your Sunday evening!
