Hi everyone! Good Sunday morning to you guys. Well, needless to say the cleaning went just fine yesterday. I am not sure if that is because I stamped for most of the day and then hurriedly cleaned up or because I realized that the house was in actuality already clean..lol. Either way, today is 60 people in my house day! Woot! I'm looking forward to it, though..should be fun.
So, today's card, as I told you yesterday, is for the Off the Wall Craftiness color and Waltzingmouse Sketch challenges for this week. So much fun with this sketch. It appeals to me in a very simplistic way. First, here is the sketch:
Ok, so here are the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge colors for this week:
When I saw these colors I immediately thought of the military and my DH who is leaving in a few short weeks. I thought I would make him a card to give before he leaves. It's always such a chaotic first few weeks when he is gone. I'm so used to being able to do "my own thing" sometimes (like stamping in peace!!), and that's harder to do when I am the one in charge of dinner or whatever. Anyway, here is the card:
So, you likey? Let me tell you a little secret. The camo background? That is one of the images from the Waltzingmouse Teeny Trees set!! I stamped it in creamy caramel, old olive, and chocolate chip and just randomly placed it on the white card stock. I think it turned out fabulously! Here is the image I used:
If you have the set, it is the one at the top left side. Total fun discovering this little trick! I was quite giddy and happy with myself...lol.
Well, that's it from me today. I hope you have a wonderful day! Tomorrow, come back for more fun with the latest Papertrey Blog Hop. This time we are celebrating other religious or cultural holidays such as Eid, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa. Check out the Papertrey site for more info.
