Blogger's Challenge 116: Thinking of You


Oh, I have been on a creative kick at night lately. It's too bad my sewing machine has not been cooperating with me. I wanted to make a really cute pocket card and after "sewing" through 2 cards I tossed them and started over with something different.

This card is based on Leigh O'Briens Tuesday TCP-Sketch Challenge, although I didn't use TCP stamps, I chose to use some Verve stamps. I love this set, it's so dainty and cute.

I pulled out some old retired SU! paper (Business looking kit) and used that as my dp. I also pulled out another retired product, my Cool Carribean ink pad which I love. I bought a few pads of the paper and ink refills when it was discontinued as I loved this color so much! I still keep it in my ink pad storage and use it a lot. Some of the other in-colors never even saw the light of day.

Kim, This is just so lovely. The colors you used work beautifully together (CC was one of my favorites & I wished I had bought some paper before it retired.) - Love the images and how you have then stamped under your sentiment - Which is a wonderful statement.
