I've been told I don't keep my blog very 'updated', but it's so hard to do when I'm not feelin' the love. :( So, to get some love I'm going to buy it with a little blog candy. ;) You have until Monday night to tell me how you are feeling as well as how often you check to see if I've updated my blog. I'll pick a name Tuesday morning. Good luck.
Now, some shares. I made a card and altered journal for a friend of mine. Her birthday is today, Happy Birthday Brooke!! Hope you had a great day.
I'll start with the card, talk about wowsers! I love it. It turned out great. CASED it from the '08 F/W catti. Just changed the stamp sets, colors and tweeked the design a little. I used retired colors, Baja Breese, Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette cs & ink. Added a little chocolate chip ribbon and scalloped cs for good measure. I love this card, so happy with it. But I think I said that already. ;)
The altered comp book did not take long at all. Also used some retired stuff here. Can't remember the pp pack the paper came from but uses Soft Sky and River Rock. Punched a shape with the curly label punch in Regal Rose cs and sponged the edges for depth. The daisy and 'B' were cut out of Soft Sky cs with the big shot and sponged as well. For the 'B' I glued the cardstock to a piece of chipboard first then put through the big shot. So nice! The flower center is a corduroy brad in chocolate chip (super yummy). I also added a scallop edge along the top (going over the edge of the cover) in chocolate chip and added faux stitching. Should have taken a close up but didn't think of it in time, sorry!
Again, don't forget about the blog candy!
