Demure


Hello everyone!!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was crazy and relaxing. Saturday we had a full day and it ended with a date night to see my niece play in "Annie". Her school was putting on the production and she played many parts but her main art was "Duffy" one of the orphans. When I saw her on stage I had to stop myself from crying. I was just so proud of her and all that she has accomplished in her 13 years. It just amazes me how time goes on and things change. I still think of her as a little girl no bigger than my boys' ages.

Sunday was a day of relaxing and enjoying the company of my family. Since we got home so late Saturday night it would have been to crazy to get up and go to Stake Conference. Where we have to go for Conference it is a 45+ minute drive instead of about 20-30 min drive to our church building.

Anyway, on to my card. I didn't know what I wanted to do to show everyone today. I have been working on something else but I am not finished so I wanted to do a card so I had some eye candy for all my 3 loyal fans hehehe.

I figured I would use a new stamp that I got when I ordered my mom's mother's day stamp. There was an accident that caused me to get a different stamp than what I ordered but they were the same price and the company hasn't contacted me yet saying they wanted me to send it back so I inked it up. She is beautiful and the stamp is called "Demure".

Now, since I was at a loss for what to make besised the stamp I used I went in search for a sketch to use and make things as easy as possible for me. I remember CPS (Card Positioning Systems) and went to work on the awesome stamp. Their sponsor this week is Stamping Bella.

I also got to do some shopping at Michael's and I just happened upon some paper that is so me. I didn't hesitate to get it and I usual hesitate for everything. Now, I am can't be sure where the aper is from. It just says ancestry.com and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!

I want to also mention. While I was looking around for a sketch to use I came across copic challenge blog and the challenge was to color blonde hair. Since I was planning on using "Demure" anyway I decided to just color her hair blonde. I love it.

Here are the deets:

stamps: PTI silent night, Sweet art ebony-demure

ink: Tim holtz distress ink-tea dye, staz-on jhet black

paper: PTI aqua mist, vintage cream, kraft, ancestry.com

buttons are from Michael's "Dress it up", spica glitter pens for highlighs, colored with copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

P.S. I also wanted to inform you on some info that I found out. It turns out that the resmith that won my blog candy is my Mom. I cannot believe I didn't realize that. But now she has just started her own blog. She just put a beautiful card on there for my niece. Go here to enjoy some wonderful eye candy.

Melissa,
Such a cute card!! I just love this one. I think I might just have to order it (with a few others). Thanks for mentioning my blog. It still needs a lot of work but hopefully I will get there.
