No Sentiment shabby



Happy hump day!

A new challenge goes live today at Simply Scrapping Crafts



Now, I frequently make cards and leave the sentiment off, but for some reason, being forced into it was hard for me. It took me forever to figure out what I wanted to do! As an added bonus, I actually didn't use ANY stamps...and it was HARD! *chortle*

Deciding on some shabby goodness, this card came together rather quickly with a bunch of things I had lying around my studio.

Come join in the fun for a chance at an amazing prize package of assorted ribbons and trims from MAY ARTS! (I know that SSC is a bit confusing to navigate at at first, so if you have any questions, just let me know by email)

Thanks for stopping by,
*mwah*

Patterned paper: Webster's Pages
Cardstock: PTI rustic cream
Ruffled ribbon and lace: May Arts
Felt, button twine, buttons, and dies: PTI
Other: Nestibilities, crochet flowers from Etsy, Maya Road leaf pins, pearl, sewing machine.

CAS, Shabby and a Swagbucks master...one person shouldn't be allowed to have all that talent. LOL Gorgeous, gorgeous card!

Love all that texture!

Gabby said...

Your shabby card is wonderful! Love all the colors, patterns, textures. I wanted to check out SSC but it wouldn't let me read the challenge. I had to join, which I did. Does it usually take a long time to get a reply that you've been "accepted," or not? Sorry I couldn't email you direct. For some unknown reason, my computer won't allow me to email via outlook express. Even the "Geek Squad" couldn't figure it out!?! :)

Dana said...

Gabby, if you come back here to check, try emailing me at granolagirltoo at gmail dot com and I will help you with SSC! I can't email you back if I don't know your address!
