Hello, my friends! I am SO happy to be back in a "normal" routine again. Fresh off of my vacation last week to Maine, I am feeling very energized, relaxed and ready to create amazing new things! I hope this feeling doesn't go away anytime soon. I did do a little bit of crafting while on vacation, but honestly, I did more reading, watching Netflix, oh, and eating Mrs. Dunster's donuts. Mrs. Dunster's donuts are made in Canada and are a BIG treat for me! I've only seen these donuts in Maine and New Hampshire, so, every time I return home, I'm always sure to (over)indulge (and bring back a few extra bags to freeze)! Some people go to Maine to eat lobster. I go to Maine to eat these AH-mazing yummy donuts! Priorities people.
Today I am sharing my Design Team card for the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge. Some of my fellow team members grumbled about the monochromatic blues, but not me, I love all things blue. So, if you love blue, you should join us this week and give our challenge a try! For this card I used a brand new stamp set called "Tick Tock" from Papertrey Ink. I love that it's such a unique stamp and one I don't already have various other multiples of! My grandmother always had a cuckoo clock hanging on her living room wall and it cuckoo-ed every half hour. Every. Half. Hour. That means I've heard a lot of cuckoo's in my life!! That same clock, despite annoying me as a child, also held a very dear place in my heart. My mother inherited this clock when Grammie passed away and despite multiple visits to clockmakers it has never worked since. With this stamp set, I was able to create not just a card, but a beautiful memory.
Here are some additional samples with from the Papertrey Ink website:
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
