A Week Gone By....

It doesn't really feel like it, but here we are. I haven't been creating all that much, as things have been busy on the home-front. Between home improvement projects, and getting the kids ready for the new school year...time is getting away from me.

I made this Wiper Card a few days ago, and I'm finally getting around to post it. These Wiper Cards are such fun cards to make! The wonderful tutorial from Beate can be found here.

Card Stock: Garden Green, Vintage Cream (PTI), The Great Outdoors (digital paper pack)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Close To Cocoa Stampin' Write marker, Copic Markers
Accessories: Labels Four Nestabilities, Corner Chomper, Striped Ribbon (Sharon Johnson's Store), Antique Copper Making Memories Brad, Scotch Foam Tape, Tombo Multi Glue








Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!!
Thanks for visiting!

What a great Wiper card. I agree - they are so fun to make, and much easier than they first appear. (Thanks to Beate!) Love your owl and that sentiment is wonderful.

Love your wiper card! I'm going to have to try one of those. Haven't been blogging so I hadn't seen your new blog look. I LOVE IT! Makes me want to revamp my blog too. :-) {{hugs}}

This is a first - I have never heard of a wiper card before - how adorable it is, Rose Ann! I love it and think I'll have to try one sometime. Of course, I love your little owl!

Super cute wiper card, Rose Ann! I don't think i've ever made one of these.....off to check out the tutorial! TFS
I know from experience that home improvements can get in the way of stamping. And then getting the kids ready to go back to school is exhausting too! Hang in there, it'll get better soon!

Have a great weekend!

Fabulous wiper card, Rose Ann! I've been wanting to make one with Beate's tutorial but haven't had much time either.
Hope all the home renos are coming along nicely!!
Back to school for us soon too...I'm not ready...ugh!

How perfect to have the owl popping up, like he's flying right out of the card.
