Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge 53 Anniversary Blog Hop
Wow! What fun this was! I really enjoyed this challenge! The image I used was a freebie a couple of weeks ago from Bugaboo Stamps called SummPeek flowerpot. I thought it was so cute and it's the perfect image for a spring or early summer card. It reminded me of my daughter and all the mischief that she can get into. I used my Sweetberry Ink Dye Pads (colors used: ivy, java, juneberry, velvet, amber, blackberry, and maraschino) and my Zig H20 pen brush to color the image. The paper is from a couple of sources. The cream cardstock is from The Paper Company Seaside pack. The green cardstock comes from DCWV The Cardstock Stack. The other papers came from DCWV Flower Shower Spring Stack. I used my Cricut Plantin SchoolBook cartridge again to cut the circles. The ribbon is actually from the $1 bin at Target. It came in a six pack. The flowers I bought at JoAnn's in a pack by Heidi Grace Designs. And the brads came from Hobby Lobby. Happy Anniversary ladies!
My name is Erika and I am a mother and an elementary school teacher. I love scrapbooking and card making. Making jewelry has also been fun. I grew up in a home where my mom was always making things for us, dresses, dolls, stuffed animals and such. I loved it. I tried to learn some things but it was difficult because I am left handed and my mom is right handed. Needless to say, I left home without knowing how to do some really cool things. It wasn't until I was pregnant with my daughter that I really wanted to make the effort to learn. I learned how to sew and do some other fun crafts. Thank goodness my mom is the craft queen of the world because I have been able to go to her and ask her for help. She is my best example and my best friend. Plus, she made me start this blog...so here I am.
