Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday.
Well, I finally got into my crafting space to make a couple of cards this weekend. Yes, siree, that seems to be a very rare thing these days!
I saw this challenge across at cas-ual fridays and couldn't wait to play along
I immediately knew which circular element I wanted to use as my focal point - Fantabulous You! I mixed it with some Pool Party and Midnight Muse cardstock. I colored the image using both Pool Party and Midnight muse in the pattern that would not be unknown to those who play cricket :-)
I used a PTI embossing plate to create a little texture on the Pool Party layer (sorry it's so hard to see). I then used Midnight Muse ink to stamp the lines using a PTI stripes set. I stamped the stripes 5 times and then punched out the focal image. I popped that over the stripes using dimensionals. All that was needed was a couple of pearls to finish off the circular theme.
Here's what I came up with:
I was pleased it with and was made for my darling hubby. The reason he is so awesome is this..... these are the shelving units he spent 4 days installing in our WIC and you can see the massive amount of shoe storage he put in for me!!!!!! That alone makes him awesome. A man that totally understands my obsession with beautiful shoes. And no, that isn't all of them. I hadn't finished moving them in when I took the photos! :-) The fact that the rest of the WIC looks fabulous due to his really hard work... well, I truly think he is awesome!
Here are some shots of the WIC for you
Yep.... Charlie decided it was a good place to check out the view! But don't the units look fabulous? Everything fits into our WIC now, great shelving, great drawers, my shoe storage, handbag storage and I love that he painted the walls the toasted marshmallow before he put up the units. He really did work so hard and I really think it paid off!
As always, thank you for visiting my little area of the stamping blogosphere. Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
