Oh, Alice! meets Fall-to-layout

I am always so happy when I get to spend some time in my stamp room.  Hubby and the oldest were out Friday & Saturday late so I got the two little ones to bed at a decent hour, headed downstairs and stamped until I ran out of mojo.

I have been very busy at work this week, traveling and have had some wonderful opportunities present themselves in the stamp world which I've been busy creating for.  Sorry, can't share right now, but April is a big month for me!

This was a simple, yet frustrating card for me.  I was in the middle of punching with my EK Success punch and it went kerplunk!  It just quit on me mid-punch.  I do not have good luck with punches, they don't like me for some reason.  However, once I finished, I really liked how it turned out.  My husband liked it but said he doesn't know what I would ever use the card for...I said "Whatever"!

I combined two challenges for this card, using the FTL#84 sketch with the Oh, Alice! challenge this week to use text on your creation.  
Hope you enjoy the card and have a great week!  
Make sure to visit tomorrow for the next Going Grey challenge.

You're not the only one that has that kind of problem, I do too!! Although I love this little guy & his attitude

Hi Kim!
I was just saying to my friend that the problem with the "simple" cards is that to work, everything has to be perfect - the stamping, the alignment of the layers, etc. And this card is perfectly simple in the best possible way. The image (which I love) is showcased, the PP is fab, and the sentiment rocks! And I love the scalloped dictionary text! LOVE IT!

Kristen said...
