Busy, Busy, Busy

No I haven't died or anything. We are remodeling our basement, putting an offer in on a house and property and getting ready for a short vacation. Phew! Makes me tired thinking about all this. So I haven't had a lot of time for crafting.

But here's is one of my latest cards. The image and sentiment is from a set called Timeless Treasures by Theresa Momber. I used Nantucket Post-It Adhesive Craft Paper that I won from the Cuttlebug Spot. I scored the background diagonally to form the diamonds and then lightly sanded the diamonds to bring out the core. I used Nestabilities to cut out the sentiment and image and then inked around the shape and the edges. I stamped the image twice and popped up the image on the card. Added some ribbon and a flower and there you have it.

This card is for several challenges:
  • The Cuttlebug Spot: this week's challenge to is create something vintage. I thought the image and the sanded background gave this card a vintage look.
  • Little Paper Shop: challenge #58 is a color challenge: turquoise, white and dark purple.
  • Stamp TV: Inspired 13 challenge: use your Scor-Pal to create a diamond shape background.
A little plug before I go. Victoria Case has an upcoming new release, Spring is in the Air, this Friday, March 12th and she has some delicious blog candy to win. Check out the snippets of the new goodies and leave a comment to win some for yourself! You can get a second chance to win by going to Susana's Blog Follow Your Heart.

Also my blog candy ends on Friday. Just leave a comment at this point to win the stamp set, album and assorted other goodies. See the side bar for all the information.

I hope your week has been wonderful so far. I'm hoping for a speedy recovery for our basement because that's my stamping area. Stop back for more fun this week.

Inky hugs,
