Roses on Paper Challenge with Picnic Time and Ally


What a beautiful weekend we had here in Maine, but with the exception of about 7 hours of it, my time was devoted out to others. I worked or slept! But I should be thankful that I'm healthy enough to work as much as I do and that I have two jobs. That's not normal for this time with our economy the way it is. But I'm not getting on a soapbox. I've got two great cards from my two favorite stores that I want to share with you.

Isn't Ally and her sweet little dog just too stinkin cute? She's another gorgeous Rubber Romance stamp from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD). This little pup is a lot like my Hagrid, but believe me, I look nothing like Ally except that my hair's straight! I followed the sketch over at the SCACD PCP group and used that beautiful Laura Ashley paper from Dovecraft that you can only get at Susana's. Take a look at it because it's luscious!


Picnic Time is another one of those sweet Sarah Kay stamps from Summer at Roses on Paper and Jodi, such a talented and sweet fellow Design Team Gal, gave us the challenge this time to use quilting on our cards. Now I quilt but there's one pattern I'll never attempt because of the curves and that's a Dresden Plate. Well, thank God for nestabilities because that scalloped circle gives you an instant Dresden Plate! I love the soft colors on her and I think the Porcelain paper from BasicGrey is perfect for this sweetie. Make sure you stop by our Design Team Challenge blog and take a look at the other gorgeous cards created by my other Design Team family.

Card Ingredients:
Ally by Rubber Romance, Picnic Time by Sarah Kay, Prima Flowers, Porcelain Paper and brads from BasicGrey, Kaisercraft pearls, Laura Ashley Connamara paper from Dovecraft, Bella Baubles, ribbon, nestabilities, copics, ribbon, spacers, hatpin.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I very much looking forward to the experience. The group Sugarland was just here last week and my son fell in love with that little girl. I guess they were able to have a personal conversation, anyhow, I had never heard them so it is neat to put a voice with the face.
