Papertrey Paper Dolls: Challenge #6

Wowzers!  Where has the time gone!  It's been forever since I've been able to update - that will all change next week though when school is done!  Here is the Paper Dolls Challenge for the week.  It was supposed to be a gift card holder, but I rarely give gift cards and I needed a baby card so I just used the layout instead.

I used Soft Stone for the base and Spring Moss for the mat layer. Then added a bunch of patterned papers - the polka dot one is from PTI Pretty Pastels the others are from a Glitter & Animal Crackers Mat Stack that I had laying around.  The stamp is from Baby Button Bits and is stamped in Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  I used misc buttons and some Rustic Cream Button Twine to attach the 'o' button.

I have a few reasons for being so absent from my blog lately, the main one being that it's the end of the school year.  Another one being the basement family room project.
This is what it looks like today.  We have to trim and clean up tonight, because carpet goes in tomorrow morning!  This corner will be my craft space so I am very excited to wrap this project up and start organizing and decorating the space!
We have also been enjoying so fabulous weather!  Last week we went to the Twins game at the brand new Target Field Stadium.  We lucked out and had a beautiful day to go and the Twins won in extra innings!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you are having a great Memorial Day!

Papertrey Paper Dolls: Challenge #3

I'm alive!  I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted.  I've actually had some time to create over the past few weeks, just no time to edit photos and post.  Sorry this picture is so terrible, but I really wanted to be able to participate in this weeks challenge over on the Paper Dolls blog so at 8:30 tonight, this was the best lighting I could get.

Here's the sketch.  (Love square cards. Way to go, Suzanne!)

And here's my card.  
I needed a little thank you card for a student who brought me a basket of fruit for Teacher Appreciation Day last week.  I used Soft Stone cardstock for the base and some Pretty Pastels PP for the first mat layer.  The second mat layer is some Archiver's cs I had in my stash.  I used the A Little Argyle and Round & Round stamp sets, Dusty Concord Distress Ink and PTI Fresh Snow Ink.  Then a little piece of Fresh Snow Twill to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!
