MIA


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I have been MIA because I've been spending a lot of time with the family. I haven't had time to stamp, or check out other blogs. Believe me...I will be 'getting around' as soon as I am able. ;)

I actually started this card on Friday, and used Beate's WSC17 for the layout. Long-Time Friend is such a beautiful set, and even though it's retired...I just can't let it go yet. It's not the easiest image to color, though. I stamped with Palette Burnt Umber on Shimmery White, and colored with my Copic Markers. The designer paper is BasicGrey Mellow, and the ribbon is from the SU Holiday Mini. It's difficult to tell in the photo, but the Chocolate Chip base is stamped with The Linen background stamp and Very Vanilla Craft ink.

Thanks for visiting!

Stamps: Long Time Friend, Linen, "Birthday" (Beautiful Blooms from PaperTrey Ink)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Shimmery White, Mellow (BasicGrey)
Ink: Palette Burnt Umber, Very Vanilla Craft, Copic Markers
Accessories: Coluzzle Cutting System, Fiskars Scallop Paper Edgers (regular & mini), Chocolate Chip 15/16" Satin Ribbon, Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals

Gosh, Rose Ann, I came here thinking the same thing--I've been MIA all weekend and have a lot of catching up to do. This is lovely! Can you believe I've had this set all this time and have never used it? Shame on me! It's beautiful with the Chocolate and the BasicGrey. Don't make me go running out to buy that Mellow, now. Sheesh!

Angie said...

What a beautiful card!!! I'm with you I'm so behind on looking at everyone's blog, will I ever catch up? Have a great day!! I'm heading out now to price a computer...not sure if I will purchase one today.
