I did a card challenge!!!

Posted under challenges 2 Comments

I used to LOVE doing online card challenges, absolutely loved being, well, challenged to create out of my comfort zone.  Color challenges, sketch challenges – you name it, I did it!  Well it’s been years since I’ve done one (at least 7 years!) and I decided it was time to carve out some time and get challenged!  This week I decided to join the Tic Tac Toe challenge at Shopping Our Stash.    (SOS380)

Choose a line, horizontal, perpendicular or diagonal and use all the elements in your card.  I chose straight down the middle – stamps (of course), stash more than 5 years old and Happy Birthday.  Here’s my card:

 

 

 

For the stamps, I used a lovely set from Concord and 9th called “Just Because” and a sentiment from Cats Life Press.

As to the “stash older than 5 years” part, I used a piece of patterned paper from Rouge De’ Garance from 2006.  I stamped the flowers and background block with some original distress inks that I have had for at least a dozen years – antique linen, tattered rose and worn lipstick.  (although they’ve been re-inked many, many times since then…)

The birthday wishes sentiment, leaves and branches were stamped with Archival ink.

Thanks for stopping by!

It’s coming down fast and heavy up here in Vernon. As the snow is supposed to change to sleet and ice, I have decided not to risk the treacherous roads. Paper Anthology will be closed tonight. Stay home and safe everyone!

Winter closing!

Posted under Uncategorized No Comments

So, I’m pretty sure no one is planning on venturing out in this weather to buy stamps (or paper for that matter) but if you are…don’t! Stay home safe and sound – cuddle up in a warm quilt, drink some hot tea, maybe make a few winter wishes cards. Paper Anthology will be closed today, seeing as I can’t even find my van in this white out!
