It's Thursday!! Woot! Hopefully today is better than yesterday (this is postdated). My IMAC decided to throw a temper tantrum and won't turn on. With technical support, I was able to get it back on a couple of times, only to have it spontaneously shut off again a few minutes later...thus a trip to the apple doctor. Hopefully it's only a minor ailment and will recover quickly. Therefore, I'm posting this on my laptop, which doesn't contain the proper watermark for my photos, and is slower at times with our wireless server. I'm thrilled to get this card posted. It was touch and go all day Wed.
Well, since it's thursday, it's time for a CCEE Stamper's challenge, and we have been challenged to make a monochromatic blue card since Spring is on its way bringing with it some beautiful blue skies. We're able to include some neutrals also. I chose ivory. Well, mine's more a blue/green...hope I don't get the buzzer....lol
For my sentiment I used the verse Ecclesiastes 3:11 Plain Jane by Verve. I love this encouraging verse!! It was diecut with Labels 4 (Spellbinders), and shaded with Antique Linen Ranger Distress Ink.
eta: When I was typing this up, I totally forgot to mention that I used Charmaine's fabulous VLV sketch found HERE!
I also used some new yummy papers by MME: Stella Rose Gertie and Mabel. Lastly, I added some Pearls by Kaisercraft, seam binding ribbon, a Rose by Wild Orchid Crafts, and some Candy Gems by Prima. The border was made with a Martha Stewart all around punch.
That's it from me today. Be sure to stop by the CCEE Stamper's blog to see what the other gals have come up with. We'd love to have you join us for this challenge too.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Happy Stamping my friends!!
