Blog Challenge #116; Techno Challenge #86


It's been awhile, hasn't it?!! I really have NOT forgotten you....you see, I've been busy putting together a scrapbook wedding album for my hubby's niece. She was married on June 27 and I just finished it yesterday and mailed it out today. I've also been working on Save the Date cards for my son's upcoming wedding in May. That hasn't left much time for working on Challenges!

So, this card is doing double duty.....it fits this week's Bloggers' Challenge theme of "thinking of you," and the sketch that MaryJo put out last Monday. The images are all SU! and the background paper is something I purchased awhile back (don't remember where or when!), but bought it because it reminded me of Trendy Trees......actually, everything BUT the background paper is all SU! I know you can't tell on screen, but the background of the DSP is really shimmery. Gotta love that!
Stamps: Trendy Trees
Inks: Ballet Blue, Chocolate Chip, Apricot Appeal, Old Olive
CS: Sahara Sand, Chocolate Chip, Ballet Blue, Old Olive
Misc: Ballet Blue Mini Brads; Photo Corner Punch; Paper Piercer; Word Window Punch; Modern Label Punch; Wide Old Olive Grosgrain; Old Olive, Really Rust, Ballet Blue Markers*, Sponge Dauber
*I used the Thumping Technique on the "circle" tree, and then sponged in some extra color on the stamped image.
Thanks for stopping by. Please take a bit of time and check out what the others have been up to!
I've made a couple of other samples to catch up on the Challenges and have downloaded them into my computer. Tomorrow, bright and early, I'm leaving for a quick get away to New Orleans....but I'm bringing my laptop with me, and plan to post them while I'm away. So, hopefully, I'll be all caught up by the time I return home.....only to fall behind again, I'm sure! Please come back and visit soon.
