Sent With Love-Cake

Hello friends...Today I am showing another whimsical image from Gina K's Sent With Love Stamp TV kit. To read more about that, scroll down and check out my previous post.

In addition to having color challenges, Gina and her cast also have sketch challenges. You can see this week's sketch HERE.


And here is my take...



All supplies are from the Sent With Love kit; card stock, ribbon, patterned paper and stamp. The glitter is from Martha Stewart Crafts. I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, circle and scalloped circle Nestabilities and I colored my image with Copic markers. This stamp set is quite different from what I usually purchase. I don't normally like whimsical and cartoon-like stamps, but this set has such cute images I couldn't resist. Hopefully on Friday, I'll have another one ready to post for you.

We have been enjoying some wonderful weather in our neck of the woods. I've been wearing sundresses and sandals for the last several days and it's still January! This is a photograph that my daughter shot while walking around our neighborhood. Yes! It's so warm here, that folks were actually boating this weekend!


As always, I thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great Wednesday! Until next time...

Blessings~

Such a pretty card, Barb. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad you went out of your usual comfort zone and got the kit. Sometimes it's good to stretch.

Sundresses and boating in January?! Yep, that can pretty much only happen in CA (or maybe Hawaii). I'm glad you are enjoying it!

Great card, Barb! I love sketch.

As for where you live, I find myself a bit envious. It's c-o-l-d here!

Your card is wonderful, Barb --both fun and pretty!

I'm trying hard not to be envious of your winter warmth...remembering that a 'change of seasons' was high on the priority list for moving...we definitely have them here, though I can't say I enjoy being cold for months on end. We've got a balmy 29F at the moment (but the sun is shining). ;)

big hugs,
Christi
