Need a Lift?
I haven't played with this stamp in a long time and when I saw the House Mouse challenge I knew I wanted to dig it out and use it. Speaking of digging--I've been diggin in my craft closet. Actually I've been organizing. My daughter needed to store something in there and there just was nowhere to put it. Finding a space required a thorough cleaning and rearranging. So . . . I bought yet another one of those handy dandy plastic multiple drawers towers and commenced to filling it up. (that didn't take long) I actually went through my scrap boxes and separated all the small stuff from the big. Now I have to go through that and get rid of all the stuff you say "oh I might use that" but never do. [grin}
Anyway, I just had to take a break in the cleaning this morning and make a card. The little bears are from the HM Gruffies line and they are colored with Copic markers. I was a good girl and used some of those scraps I sorted for the papers. There's some hemp cord and a big button that I did Audrey Petit style.
You guys would have gotten a huge laugh this morning if you could have watched me struggling to get that silly sentiment made. The measuring part of my brain had obviously not woken up yet. LOL
Hope all your crafting projects are going well. I've been working like a mad woman to get all my DT projects done before my hubby and I take off for two weeks of much looked forward to vacation out west.
Hope you like the card. It's very simple, but the meaning is worth it's weight in gold!
