Hello blogging friends!! Why is it I always seem to be blogging at midnight?? I keep telling myself that I’m going to get to bed early this time…..ya, it just never happens!! I’m on a new mission in my craft room right now. Finding a system to store all my acrylic stamps so I #1, know what I even have for stamps and #2, can find them when I want them. I think I must have watched about a dozen You Tube videos tonight and I think I may have come up with a system that will work for me. When (if) I get it all done I’ll share it with you…..it may just work for you to!
I decided I’d better get my I spy card done tonight before I miss yet another mission…..I may end up getting kicked off the team if I miss too many! Last weeks clue led us to a candle and this weeks clue is looking like it’s leading us to an eyelet. I decided I’d combine both last weeks challenge with this weeks challenge and that way I can say I completed both missions……right?! I have a friend that asked me to make some birthday cards for her to use for all her nieces and nephews birthdays for this year. I decided to make a little boy birthday card and I’ve had these birthday embellishments for a while now and have been trying to think of a way to use them. It sort of came together tonight for me.
It’s was a very simple card to put together and didn’t take me that long. I decided I wanted just an extra pop of color so I used my CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge and cut out a bright green scalloped rectangle. I attached the four black eyelets to it and then adhered the birthday candle “happy birthday” embellishment.
I added some star dust stickles to the flames of the candles to give them some sparkle. I also wanted a bit more dimension to the gift box so I attached a ribbon bow to the top of the box. Easy peasy……kinda cute. I hope she’ll like it!
So tomorrow night, I’m going to grab my sewing machine, some acetate, some page protectors, maybe some white cardstock and see if I can get my acrylic stamps organized…….stay tuned……this could get interesting……lol!!
