Hi Everyone! I'm often asked how I have the time to craft and create with 2 little kiddos at home. The truth is I don't have hours and hours to sit down by myself in the peach and quiet of my craft room. Instead, I take the small moments throughout the day to plan, stamp, color, embellish, assemble, photograph and blog my cards. This card is a great example.
While trying to fall asleep a few nights ago I came up with the sketch for this card and I decided on the stamps and colors I wanted to use. The next day I experimented with those ideas throughout the morning and then finished it up while my daughter took a nap. My son (who just turned three) loves to craft with me and enjoys inking up stamps, cutting with scissors and punching circles while I work. But keep in mind he is 3. :) Craft time only usually lasts about 15 minutes. :) :)
I've really been enjoying THIS Memento Ink set lately. It just seems to have all the colors I love and need. Do you see that piece of wood? More on that later next week! LOVE IT!
