Hello again my crafty friends! Happy TGIF! Got any plans for the weekend? Hubby will be working on farm equipment. He is ready to get out in those fields. He had to watch harvest last year instead of doing harvest, so it has been really hard on him not being out in those fields. lol I hope to be crafty in the craft room. Or at least work on my stamps that I'm reorganizing.
While going through my stamps, I've been finding some awesome stamps that I've kinda' forgotten about. So I took the time to play with one set for a little while. It is a Paper Trey Ink set called Vintage Baskets. Love this set, it is so cute! Over at Darnell's blog, a blog that is a must if you love humor because Darnell surely is a funny gal! I so love going to her blog to read, so check her out-she makes great cards too! So she is having a birthday card link up for a fellow blogger. So I decided to link up my birthday card that I made. I use one of the baskets with one of the "toppers" to put in the basket from the Vintage Baskets set. I stamped it right on the card base-yes, I didn't think that one through. lol But I did and then using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored my envies and my basket. I took another white layer and using a SB die cut out the scallop rectangle and placed it over my image. I did a little doodling around the frame and on the card base I drew lines and added some more doodle lines along with some die cut stars from My Creative Time 4x4 Journal Die & More. I stamped my top layer with a polka dot stamp from My Creative Time called Build a Banner Kit using Tim Holtz distress ink Antique Linen. Then because I colored on my base card, I had to cover the inside cover. So I stamped the same polka dots on cream colored paper with Tim Holtz distress ink Walnut Stain. My sentiments are from a Fiscars set that I picked up at JoAnn's. Just a CAS card, but I think it is so cute. I hope you like it too. IThanks so much for visiting me today. Your comments always make my day so special. Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you have time to get crafty if you want to. Crafty hugs, Brenda
