Happy Birthday Mom

I hope you're not sick and tired of my love for October Afternoon yet because I have another card made with their Sidewalks collection to show you. Yesterday my mom celebrated her birthday and I made her this card.

The sentiment panel was inspired by Betsy Veldman. Betsy has an amazing talent to mix 'n match sentiment stamps and images to create a unique background.

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream, Kraft) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Sidewalks) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Think Big Favorites #13) | Ink: A Muse Studio (Grass, Bermuda, Shell, Buttercup, Cranberry), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo) | Felt: Felt on the Fly | Button: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist) | Twine: Cards & Wishes | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Frilly Flowers Die Collection), sewing machine | Other: foam dots

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Have a wonderful day!

Home Sweet Home

It's been a while since I blogged, and I haven't made any cards in ages either. We've been going through a hard time and I didn't feel like creating cards, kits for my store or any other paper projects. Too much stress, too little time and no inspiration at all. I won't go into detail, but it hasn't been easy for us. Today's card was made for our eldest girl Fleur who was released from hospital this morning. We're so happy to have her home again after three weeks. Needless to say, she's happy too because there's no place like home. Home sweet home...

Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Sidewalks) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Daily Designs Sentiments, Tag-its #5) | Ink: A Muse Studio (Cranberry), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Felt: Papertrey Ink (Raspberry Fizz) | Button: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix) | Twine: Cards & Wishes | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Medium Scalloped Border Die, Beautiful Blooms #2 Die Collection, XL Rickrack Border Die), We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, sewing machine

Until next time...
