Goodmorning everyone! Can you believe it's the very last day of January?! This month sure went by fast! Looking back on this month I didn't nearly get as much done as I would have liked, but I think I have majorly improved since last year! I managed to at least blog 3-4 times a week and kept my mojo flowing through most of the month. I'm hoping to improve each month and by the end of the year I would like to consider myself as a pro blogger/crafter...lol!
Anyways, on to the challenge...which I'm sure everyone stopped by here to see instead of reading my chatter...lol. Over at "Sweet Sketch Wednesday"", they have a beautiful sketch this week that I had loads of fun playing with! And their sponsor for the week is "Bugaboo Stamps" which isn't a challenge at all for me to use! I not only LOVE Bugaboo stamps, but hubs recently let me go just a little crazy during their 60% off birthday sale!! I got me some absolutely adorable digis that will keep me busy for quite a long time!
Here's my take on their sketch this week with one of Bugaboo's adorable digis I picked up...as you can see I flipped the sketch...
The sentiment is my own, which I will be sharing for free on Friday! So if you like it, be sure to stop back by at the end of the week!
Here is a closeup of the yummy buttons and glazed cupcakes!...
And of course no handmade card would be complete without the inside all dressed up...
PAPERS: Cocoa and baby pink textured cardstock, shimmery turquoise card stock and design paper all from "DCWV"
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is an adorable digi stamp from "Bugaboo Stamps" and the sentiment "Have a yummy Birthday" was created by me.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Pink Rick Rack ribbon and pink and turquoise buttons.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Spellbinders" with ovals, circles, scalloped ovals and scalloped circles dies, "Cuttlebug" with dot embossing folder and scalloped border punch from "Fiskars".
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with pink color thread. Stardust "Stickles" glitter was also added to the image for even more sparkle! The image was cut and 3D mounted.
