I am still in a state of shock. I commented every day on Papertrey Ink's July Release posts and when the daily winners were announced, my name was not among them. Then they drew for the $150 GC. Glory Be and Gosh Darn., I won!!! The only sad part about this is the stamp set I wanted to get is already out of stock. I can wait. Meantime I make up a list of the others things I want. (picture me still smiling).
I've been a little slow with my card making. The temperatures here are blistering and we do not have air conditioning. Every time I turn on the lights in my crafts room, Mr H says, "You know those give off a lot of heat." It's true, I know but I can't see to craft without them. It's a tough choice to make - more heat or crafting in the dark. I did get a few things done.
The following card is for Addicted to CAS.
The entire card is colored with Distress Inks and water. The tower was cut by welding a squished balloon, a rectangle and a couple of squished triangles from George and Basic Shapes. I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts All Occasion Messages to remind me of those "hometown" cards that you can buy.
My next card is homework from the Summer Camp 2 OCC.
I used one of the sketches and the color combo for the week. The papers, all from We R Memory Keepers Anthologie stack, are either punched or cut with the Cricut. They are inked with Walnut Distress Ink and I also used it to splatter the background. Some of the circles are adhered directly to the card front and some are popped up. I did this before I saw Julie Ebersole's card on Day 3 of Week 2 but I think I'll post it for this days homework. The sentiment is from HA Birthday Bash.
Thanks for stopping by today. Please let me know you were here by leaving a comment and I will return the favor.
