Between the pages of a Book!

I am really happy with this card!! I finally made a CAS card that I like! I don’t do CAS and it is usually hard for me but this one came together pretty easily. I also love that it was inspired by Sketch #4 at the September Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com. Instead of 5 small hexagons I made one big one. I wanted to do this sketch but it had me stumped for a bit….but not any longer! I was also inspired by Ceal’s card @ Simply Beautiful Blog and took the sentiment from it.  I also went with the simple scheme to follow challenge #208 at ColourQ Blog – black, white and a splash of one color.

But most importantly I made this card for my niece to encourage her to read books. She is struggling in reading so I plan on sending this to her to help her along.

Challenges:

1) Catch the Bug Challenge – September photo challenge – school theme

2) A Gem of a Challenge #99 – use black on your card

3) Day 270 @ 365 Cards – Keep it Simple. Use only 3 items on your card – any three items, not including the sentiment.

Our last blog hop at Clearly iStamp Blog….

16 Comments

If you haven’t heard Lori is closing Clearly Digi Stamps. You will have until Sept 30th to get any digital stamp in the store for 25% off.  Enter this code at checkout:  SEPT30CLOSING

Just so you know we are not going to be selling my husband’s digital stamps anywhere so if you want any of Patrick Dunnegan’s stamps that are in the store you have until Sept 30th. Then they won’t be for sale anymore (at least for awhile). His work is keeping him busy so he doesn’t have any time to draw right now and I need a break.

So this is our last blog hop at Clearly iStamp Blog and our farewell to show off Lori’s amazing product one last time. The theme is “Anything Goes” but it is also a tribute to this wonderful company that God so blessed me to be a part of.  When I met Lori I had never been on a design team and had NEVER worked with digital stamps. I didn’t have a blog!! Real stamping scares me to death and I’m not good at it so why would this lady with a stamp company would even think about letting me be on her Design Team was beyond me!! It had to be God because she sent me Kitchen Clutter Digital Image and asked me to try out using that digital stamp. So I did and sent her several samples hoping she would like one of them!! Check out the post here for all of the samples.  But here are two of my favorites:

Towel - thank you card

Dirty Dishes Runneth over

So in March 2011 I got a blog and in April 2011 Lori invited me to be on the Design Team. She hasn’t been able to get rid of me yet!!

So when trying to decide what to do for this blog hop I was torn from using Kitchen Clutter or an SVG file since my first assignment on the team was to make samples for SVG files. But I ended up going with what I love about the company….It’s Christian. The people, the owner, the stamps… all Christian. Thank you Lori for having a Christian company out there with Christian stamps. The stamps have been used and will be used in my church card ministry and I thank you for having that product out there. That is one thing I will miss.

Sorry for the darker pictures. My Ott light bulb decided to go out after 6+ years!

This represents my September because my husband’s birthday is the 13th so that means we go to Red Lobster or get Crab Legs from the store!! We love seafood and most special occasions are celebrated at Red Lobster!!
