Before I share my project with y'all tonight I gotta point at a couple of new badges over on my sidebar!!! See em? Remember my oh so pink, ruffly, ribbony page I made of Jacob and his g/f Sarah?
If The Shoe Fits and actually won (EEEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!!) last week at Lasting
Memories!! WOWZERZ!!!!! I dunno what to say!!! My boys are scared to death now......."Noooooooo Mom is gonna try to scrap us in girl stuff!!! DUDDDDDDDE RUNNNNNNN!!! And having Echo Park's "Be Mine" collection layout out in plain sight probably isn't doing a lot to ease their fears.....lol. Poor guys :)
Just had to share that bit of excitement with ya.......since, as a rule, I don't do pink. I won't even wear pink!! So, I am not boasting or bragging about my challenge wins.....more like, expressing my shock.....lol:)
Now that I have expressed my sincere dislike for the color pink...........I wanna show y'all my creation for Sketches in Thymes tuesday take this week.......just a simple card :) I'm not really a card maker either but I was dying to break into my new scrap goodies.......and guess what? It's PINK!!!!! LOL......what is wrong with me???????
Here's the sketch :)
Now let me say this......I LOVE this "Be Mine" stuff from Echo Park! It is truly drool worthy! Even the pink.....yeah I really did just say that....I'm shocked too.......lol. I think it's the shabby chic feel it has.....and I actually rather like this card too. I know........my reputation is in jeopardy.....sighhhhh.
Other than the EP papers and the sticker I used.....I used black ink from stampabilities to ink up the edges of the card and papers, ric rac is from my stash and more likely than not came from good ol Hobby Lobby, the tiny little pink brad looking things are candy dots from Pebbles, and I gave it a spray of Shimmer Spritz from Tsukineko.....this stuff is the coolest stuff on the planet!! You don't know how badly I wanna spray everything I see down with it!! Here is a close up of its shimmery splendor ...
I'm hopeless huh? LOL
Well, I thank you for checkin in with me today. I am going to have a tutorial up for the flowers I did on my last post within the next few days and I MIGHT have another "Be Mine" project to share tomorrow!!
Hugs and enjoy your night!
