I wanted to share a card I made earlier this week using the lovely Colour Q colors for the week. It's been so long since I've played along! Booo.
I used my new Paper Smooches Sugar Rush stamp set (thank you Christmas gift cards!) - I think all the "sweet" images are so fun. I need to get my patootie up there and ink up some more, but my mojo is waning and I've officially declared January my Hibernation/Recovery month! I've been reading my books like nobody's business. I've read two novels in the past 3 days. Giggle. 8-) Thankfully, Big Daddy doesn't read my blog. He would be agog. He already thinks my nerd qualities are through the roof. (Plus I feel bad because he does have to get up really early and work really hard. Of course, he doesn't have to worry about mental instability from being on kid duty 24/7 - so I figure it balances out in the end. ;) ) Shhhhh....our little secret!
On to my card! ----
I used patterned papers from various pads to find the colors from the inspiration photo and pieced my triple scoop cone together. It's all layered up on foam tape for extra dimension and has a little bit of handshading underneath to ground it. I added some little banners from scraps to the top and stitched them down because my sewing machine was still out on my desk and I took advantage of it. After stamping the sentiment, I added a little silver bling from a CTMH embellie set.
I'm also playing along with a few more challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges -- "use the first thing you think of on your card" -- sewing machine
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge -- use Something new on your card -- new stamp set
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
God Bless and Happy New Year,
