Card #10 - I Got New Copics!

A couple of RV's, so now my girl stamps don't have to wear brown or yellow clothes all the time! And I really broke the bank and bought this sentiment from Graphicat Designs because when I read it, I just cracked up and had to have it! I suppose this isn't really appropriate for a kid's birthday card (although Ailis thinks it's hilarious, too, but she's desensitized from having an older brother with a potty mouth!) but I'm sure one of my old friends would love it! So I'm entering this card over at Kraftin' Kimmie (oh yeah, I was the random winner last week, so that was pretty awesome!): use 1 flower, 1 ribbon, and 1 piece of chipboard. While I was making this card, I realized that I hardly have any chipboard - what kind of scrapper am I? I used a scrap bit of chipboard to make the flower center, which you can't see that well in the photo, but it adds a bit of dimension, as does the box pleated cardstock at the bottom. This was the first time I tried to box pleat anything, and I like the result, so I'll be doing that again for sure! I also used this sketch from Graphicat Designs sketch challenges:
so that I can enter Cheri's August challenge.

Well, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! It's hot here, and supposed to stay so all weekend, so hopefully I'll get some sun on these ol' bones and rejuvenate a bit, because come Monday, I'm a single mom for a few days and I'm gonna need my energy!

Supplies: Close to My Heart, Prism, and Creative Memories cardstock, Cosmo Cricket and Echo Park patterned paper, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, Memento ink, Copic markers, Graphicat Designs sentiment, unknown ribbon

  1. okay girl, I *asked* Cheri to make a stamp with that greeting and you are now the third person I've seen use it before I have even had a chance to play- colour me jealous! LOL It turned out fab, though- and I'm so glad you're joining us using the August Graphicat sketch, too! Congrats on the new Copics, too :) Fab card!
