featured stamper card

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. The day passed by so quickly and now it's almost bed time.

My husband & I had a leadership meeting at our church this morning, and then we all went out to lunch afterwards.

It was a nice time of fellowship at the restaurant. Then hubby was off to work this afternoon.

I have been working in the room that will be our new dining room. We had a wall paper border up and it has to come down so we can paint. It hasn't been too bad taking it off. I am using warm water. I am about 3/4 of the way finished.

Tomorrow morning we meet our contractor at the lumber store to pick out the wood design and balusters we want for the new railing that he is installing on the stairs to the 2nd floor. We have wrought iron there now and I have wanted to replace it for several years.

Oh well enough of the construction talk and onto today's card.

I made this one for the featured stamper challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week the stamper chosen has the unique name of ButterflyEars.

I looked through her pretty gallery and picked her basket of posies card to create my card.

I kept her layout which I thought was a great one.

My changes:
  • different color cardstock & ribbon,
  • used rub-on for image,
  • used cb vintage die in corners,
  • used designer paper instead of the cuttlebug embossing folder.
I just bought this great dsp from cloud 9 called cinnamon stick. It has coordinating die-cuts and rub-ons.
My ribbon is stampin-up kraft. I love this color.
I didn't add a sentiment since I don't know how I will use this card yet.

Well, that's my card and it's also a wrap for today my blogger friends. Oh, yes tomorrow is groundhog day. There will be lots of hoopla in Punxsutawney, PA. If Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole its 6 more weeks of winter!!

Just something a little silly to end my post today.

card recipe:
paper: su natural vanilla, cloud 9 cinnamon stick dsp
accessories: su kraft ribbon, cb vintage die, nesties, cloud 9 rub-on
