Card Recognition

Mom

If you're looking for my May Arts/UmWow post click here.


So today's bonus card comes from a couple of sources of inspiration.  PTI's Make It Monday challenges you to break out your re-inkers and a straw... well we have lots of straws in our house, but I realized I only have one re-inker (Tim Holtz distress antique linen), so I somehow got on a texty train of thought, I don't know... go with me on this one.  CASE Study is having a DT call and they've asked you to CASE someone you're inspired by, so I went looking for inspiration on Cristina's blog and found the project below. While I wouldn't say this card is "out of my comfort" zone, per CASE Study's suggestion, I love it anyway...  because as a mom who's likely to be reading a book and spilling my coffee, it's totally perfect!  Yesterday I got a chance to speed through a local craft fair, click here for some photos.


Materials: PTI Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie Additions, PTI letter and tag dies, May Arts burlap twine, Tim Holtz distress stain re-inker, Authentique and Basic Grey papers, Coredinations yellow card stock

Erin, this is so sweet! And I love that image of you reading a book and spilling your coffee. Ha! Sounds a lot like me. I would love to see you make the CASE Study team. You'd be a great addition. Thanks for the shout-out!!!
