Paper Hugs and Die Cut Dreams

More challenges completed! YAY!!

While I am blurfing (blog surfing) all over the internet, I of course find all these sketches and challenges and I tell you, it doesn't get any better than this!!! What a world! Whoever thought 20 years ago that I could read about people's lives and share our love for our hobbies.

Any-who - back to the challeges. I actually incorporated two here - Papertake Weekly challenge - which was to use green and purple and Friday Sketchers! This is also my first use of stamps by CC Designs - and I have to tell you, I absolutely love the stamps and the quality! I will definitely be back for more (maybe even tonight, but don't tell my husband!)

So here it is...

Again, please excuse the pictures - I am still learning and I always seem to need to take my photographs at night, so I obviously don't get natural light. On to the deets...the base is CTMH textured cardstock - this is actually the lighter side, not the true CTMH color. The purple is just a piece that was in my purple stash, embossed with the Cuttlebug relatively new paisley embossing folders, which I always buy at - always free shipping in the US and QUICK QUICK QUICK!!! The green under the butterfly is by DoubleTakes - like the CTMH textured, this is a darker side and a lighter side. The butterfly stamp is by CC Designs, which you can purchase at Lastly, the Just be You stamp is by CTMH in a set called Treasures of the Heart...and it would have been prefect to use on last night's card with the cupcake...always a day late and a dollar short!!

Anyway, here's hoping you like it!

Thanks for stopping by.
