This is my second post for the day, I finished this layout and card yesterday and they both are for challenges that end today....sooo
The layout I actually started last month for a challenge on the Scrapmuch blog, it was a color challenge ...
it was actually due 3/25 and it didn't get done. So when I was prowling challenges I wanted to complete this week on my days off I found challenge #8 at Scrap Your Story blog that called for stitching, well that was easy enough since I am using a Scrapbook Generation sketch as the starting point for this layout.
I love how this layout came out, my father in law is such a wonderful man and I don't often get such good photos of him.
I stamped the hands on the clock and then used a wire circle embellishment with a brad through the middle.
Love any opportunity to do a little extra stamping.
Love those little tags from Tim Holtz.
Love the sentiment I found to go on this old journal spot.
The next project today is a card, it's the second birthday card I've created this month, I have nearly run out of birthday cards and that is something I will be working to build up my supply of! I drew my inspiration from 2 sources, first from Color Dare #39 at the Color My Heart challenge blog, the next from sketch #73 at Cardabilities.
The color challenge was to use CTMH colors gypsy, sky and outdoor denim.
I recently started decorating the inside of my cards, I totally love the look of it.
I added a little bling to the front of the card...what girl doesn't love a little bling.
I really like how this card came out!
