My buddy Linda has a fun new sketch for everyone this week at Freshly Made Sketches. I love simple sketches because it really allows my mind to think up so many possibilities! I did struggle to narrow down what I wanted to do this week, but as I was waking up yesterday I got an idea for a card. I love when that happens.
My idea was to make a shaker card using the Candy Conversations a la carte stamp from the new Mini catalog. I LOVE candy hearts, so this stamp was on my very first order from the catalog. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out quite like what I wanted as I am not feeling very creative lately. I know I had mentioned that I wanted to stamp every day this month, but it just hasn't happened. Hopefully I will get around to doing it a bit more. I've just been so discouraged with my results lately that I've been avoiding my room. I do think I'll try the idea again in some different colors. Pretty in Pink is just not a color that I like that much so maybe that's why I'm not loving my card.
I hope you'll come play along with us this week! I'm off to find some candy now. :)
I'll try to post a few pictures of the new things I picked up for the baby this week and some ideas I had for the wall color of the nursery. I know a few of you warned me about the gray, but Pinterest has me determined to make it happen!
