Happy Monday, everyone.
Did you get a chance to see my first
how-to video that I posted on Friday?
If not, please scroll down to the previous
post and let me know what you think!
It's how to alter a mini composition notebook.
So as I enter this second year of papercrafting,
I decided it's time to start participating
in more challenges.
I came across one for the Play Date Cafe
in my blog travels this weekend,
and loved the colors so much,
I promptly made a card.
is to go black and white
with a color splash of lilac
(or any shade of purple).
Here's what I came up with.
I got out my new Lawn Fawn "Sew Lovely"
stamps and introduced them to ink for the first time.
The dress on the dress form, I paper pieced
with some scraps I had laying in my scrap bin.
I decided it would be fun to go shabby chic,
so I used some Core'dinations cardstock
sanded down and distressed, then ripped
up the purple swiss dot cardstock for a fun edge
before I glammed it up a bit with
sheer ribbon and silver pearls.
And now, a little feast for the eyes.
My hubby spent Saturday afternoon
while I was at work, on speakerphone
with his mother in Germany
baking this cake "together."
He was so proud, when I got home he asked,
"Are you going to post this on your blog?"
Around a mouthful of chocolate cake
and raspberries and pudding,
I replied that I most definitely would.
He did everything from scratch,
and let me tell you, it was YUMMY!
With that, I bid you Auf Wiedersehen.
'Til next time, friends. :o)
