Forever & Always

Posted on

It’s Dare to Get Dirty over at Splitcoaststampers and I decided to check out some of the challenges.  They are open to Fan Club Members and they are always fun to play along with.  This is for StamperSharon’s sketch.

I used a Digi stamp from the Wild Flower Patch.  I printed it out this past weekend as a possibility for Jen’s Sketch for You to Try, but I decided to use Alice instead.  Since Bella was printed out and on my desk I thought she’d work perfectly with the Love Letters dsp.  I started with a Very Vanilla card base and added Basic Black, and two patterns from the Love Notes pack.  I then created a main image layer from Basic Black and Very Vanilla and added paper piercing.  The Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon retired a few years ago, but has been sitting in my stash.  Bella is watercolored in an then cut out and popped up on dimensionals.  I then added the sentiment from So Many Sayings, a retired Stampin’ Up! hostess stamp set.  I thought it was perfect for a Twilight themed card.  I punched out the sentiment with the Modern Label punch and then layered it on a Basic Black large oval punch.

This weekend was busy.  Roger and I had a date day on Saturday and spent a good deal of it shopping.  We did the grocery shopping, shoe shopping and went to Kohl’s.  We did go out for dinner and ice cream, but the day could have had a few more hours in it for my liking.  Then on Sunday we picked up the boys and then met with the people who were going to adopt Shadow.  She is gone and it’s so quiet here today.  We are really going to miss her and Bandit is a little mopey today because she is gone.  I’m sure our lives will return to normal again soon.

One thing that brightened my spirits today – School starts one month from today!  I can’t wait!
