Hello everyone! Here it is Friday already and I'm wondering where this week went to! With Friday comes the Clear Dollar Weekend Sketch Challenge over on PCP. There is a link in my right side bar if you'd like to play along!
Alex chose the colors for this week. She chose Ridinghood Red, Blush Blossom, Certainly Celery, and White or Kraft for a neutral.
I started to get out my new Charlie Horse, but thought... no... I don't think Charlie would look good pink, red or green! I never know how literally you have to take the color challenges... but I decided to err on the safe side! :)
I used the Diagonal Double Pocket Card found here by Claudia Rose. All the stamps are from the newly released Clear Dollar Set called "Words of Gratitude". I love this set! There are so many different ways to use it! You can find this set and many others at the Clear Dollar Store
I wasn't sure if I could make these colors work without images to tie them together but I think they look ok! The double pocket card is super easy to make and for that I used Certainly Celery DP from last year. I stampoed all the sentiments with Memento Tuxedo Black, and then cut out the scalloped circle and heart with Nestabilites. I added a Blush Blossom "flower" die cut from QuicKutz to the circle. I used my Magic Matter to mat the heart. I ran the two bookmarks through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dot and flower (?) folders. For the bottom panel I made a belly band with GP White which I ran through the bug with the swiss dot folder... and then I adhered my circles to that. I used some Chipboard "buttons" from my stash (I think these were Memory Makers but not sure). I sewed them on with Linen thread. I wanted to do flowers but just didn't have the right colors so these worked out perfectly.
The swiss dot ribbon on the back bookmark is from Hobby Lobby and the thin white is from Michaels. There is a tiny Thank You Charm that came from HL as well.
Thanks for taking a peek at my blog! I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day... and a blessed weekend! We are going to TN to visit our daughter, son in law and the kids. This will be the first Mother's Day in 11 years that we can be together on Mother's Day! I'm so happy to have them living only 2 hours away!!! God has been so good to me!
