Raspberry Suite Challenge #2




Happy Tuesday! I have to say thank you for all of your sweet comments on yesterday's cards. I was getting so frustrated Sunday night while stamping. Do you ever get that, where you are so sick of your own cards, they all look the same, etc.?! That's how I was feeling then, so thank you! I told dh this morning, maybe it's time I pick up a book and read again for awhile! lol!


Well, I have two more cards to share again today...cards I started for Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #2. I am so excited she's doing these, I love color challenges! I started out wanting to use that precious letter ribbon that I bought a long time ago here (and I'm going back this Saturday for a baby cropping shower, oh so dangerous!). I gave up on it and moved to the bunny card (which was made right before yesterday's card and is very similar to it!).


I went back to the letter ribbon last night and tried again. This card is special for me because it was made for an actual *real* occasion! lol! My dearest teacher friend is having a little boy mid-May so this is for her. On both of these cards I used more paper from that Colorbok Friendly Forest mat stack from Michael's. I thought it was adorable and could be used for cards or for school projects for the kids. Very fun stuff!

Okay, sorry so long-winded today! Thanks again for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

I have taken to working on my baking and crocheting instead of stamping, I have a seasonal stamping disorder (I made that affliction up)
I love the second card, again. i love the way you do simple-scrappy. So inspired.
