CPS 275

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week got off to a great start! I ended up wasting the day yesterday. I did get two loads of laundry done but that was it. I need to focus a little better today. I do have a hair appointment this morning and then I need to make a stop at the quilt shop. I have two discounts left on my card that I have to spend today or lose them. Yesterday, while Nick was at soccer practice, I made a quick stop at Joann's and got some yarn and a crochet hook to try my hand at that. Geesh! What is up with me? I hope I can get it mastered as I do have a very cute little blanket that I would like to make that incorporates charm squares and crocheting!

Today's card was inspired by an older sketch at CPS. Another very simple one. And this stamp set is perfect for those clean and simple cards! I took a piece of Summer Starfruit to the Big Shot and ran it through with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. This is adhered to a piece of Elegant Eggplant and then popped up onto a card base of Baja Breeze. Then I stamped the image from Lean on Me in black StazOn onto a piece of Whisper White. I rounded the four corners with the corner rounder and watercolored the image with a blender pen and Summer Starfruit, Baja Breeze, Blush Blossom and Crumb Cake. Behind this panel I added a piece of Elegant Eggplant that has two end corners rounded. I punched holes for three silver brads and the popped this up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
