I finally decided to play along with one of the Play Date Cafe challenges. I LOVE color combo challenges so why don't I enter them?... (Good question, yes?)
Anyways, here's the inspiration:
and here's my card:
|All stamps are Hero Arts; patterned paper is My Mind's Eye; ribbon - Basic Grey; embossing powder - American Crafts;|
Oh... and I mentioned exciting news, right? One of my cards is published in Paper Craft's 'Stamp It'!!! My very first pub! I'm so excited! Found a copy while out shopping today and after I told my Mom she went out to 3 Wal-marts before finding one! Love you, Mom! :)
Here's my card:
|All stamps - Hero Arts; Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Inks; Patterned Paper - Basic Grey; Twin - Papertrey Ink;|
Of course it looks better in print. ;) I'm assuming it's okay to post it as I've seen some others doing so. If not, somebody please let me know. :)
Ill be back in a couple of days to post the card I made for my son's 8th birthday. Can't believe he's going to be 8 already! Time sure flies...
Thanks for stopping by!

You can bet I will be perusing the shelves for this issue too! Your mom is so awesome - 3 Walmarts!! Congratulations! I just know we will be seeing more and more of your work in print. You are such an inspiration to me...and I love that I can now say I know someone famous ;) Your published card is beautiful - love all the textures and that bright pop of red! And the playdate card is awesome! Love how you manage to mix all those different patterns, and still have a classy, seamless finished product. I need to make a couple 'guy' cards and will definitely be coming back to this one for inspiration. Thanks for sharing!
LOVE how you've used the colors for this week's PDCC. The pattern behind the camera on that amazing frame with a bit of distressing is just awesome (and that you embossed it in orange). That sentiment font matches perfectly too - I just love everything about this card. Congrats on the pub - I saw your card in there and thought it was really neat how you created that flower on canvas.
Congratulations, Sarah! Being published is my next goal and I'm thrilled for you!
Good job on the challenge card, too - good luck!
Love both the cards but especially the "Thinking of You" card. I love the colors!
