little card...BIG thanks


Hello!

My weekend hasn't been very crafty productive....I spent 3.5 hours at Impress' Stamp night and managed to make 1 card:


3.5 hours people.

I'm not very good as a mobile crafter:)

All the American Crafts Soho Garden goodness is from Paper Issues!

My card was loosely inspired by the latest retrosketches:


I finally inked up one of my new CAS-ual Fridays stamp



This card is going to a fab friend of mine that coordinated a job shadow for my girl last Friday.  It was with a Seattle biotech company:


She spend 4 hours with 2 different Research Assistants.  It's such a rewarding graduation requirement...super proud of my girl:)

At least you got ONE card out of your 3.5 hours, LOL! And what a gorgeous card it is. Bright and cheerful! I'm not a very good mobile stamper either. I am fully capable of spending five hours or so with my crafty friends and being lucky to come away with one card. :-)

What a beautiful card Amy.

Such a lovely card! Love the bold colours and patterns! :)

Hey, it's a pretty awesome card! Love the yellow flower - looks like it's fringed or maybe pleated? Totally cool :) And I can't mobile craft to save my life...at least not on paper. I can crochet in the car, since I don't drive :)

jessica said...

TFS and have a GREAT Monday!

Lynn said...

Woohoo for CAS-ual Fridays stamps! Love the gorgeous flowers you created! And..you needed to catch up with your friends! :)

Brandi said...

Gorgeous flower patterned paper! Congrats to your girl! I bet that was exciting!

Sherry Eckblad said...

Love your card. The papers, the flowers. LOVE IT!
I have to agree with you, I am not a very good mobile crafter either unless it is at a retreat where you check in for more than the night.

I am chuckling a little bit because you sound like me at my Archiver's crop nights.......I NEVER get anything done! ;)
Do love the card you did! Such a great mix of goodies, and I love the bold colors against the kraft. Awesome sentiment! Really love the different flowers, too. Adds such great visual texture.

I have spent hours at archivers just browsing my heart out! It's not about the output sometimes but the experience! I wish I had an impress store nearby :( I like the card, it has impact!

Virginia L. said...

I absolutely ADORE how you used this CAS-ual Fridays sentiment! You do such inspiring work, Amy! And yes indeed, you should be proud of your DD! What a great achievement. This job shadowing really enhances her learning and experience! xo

JJ Bolton said...

I don't think I could get any work done at Impress either! It is a lovely card though!

BTW, girls in lab coats rock! (I wear one every day;)

Jingle said...

LOL! Somehow I think there was a lot of chatting and less card making! Very cute card, though! :)

Tracey McNeely said...

Amy I love this card, it's fantastic and perfect for the RS challenge. Love the new CASual Fridays stamp too. Did your girl have a good day?

Lisa Arana said...

This little card is BIG on awesomeness! Love.

Evelin said...

So great that your girl get to see how research assistants work :) It should be fun! :)

Love your DD in a lab coat! So awesome...I can see why you're a proud momma. :)

The dp you used on your card is SUPER pretty. I like the dramatic dark background of it, and the way you used it on your card.

That daughter of yours is super adorable...is she to old to say that??? The card is lovely and mobile crafting sounds impossible to me!!!

Sylvia said...

Love the colors in your card, Amy, just lovely! I am so glad to have finished all that I missed. I was Mia because I have been painting rooms again. finally getting rid of a purple wall(no I did not paint it purple, the house came that way)!I should be finished tomorrow.Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Jen said...

Well it's a beautiful card, so that's something, right? :) cool for your girly too- great experience!

Julie E said...

You are supah sweet and funny too. It could take me 3.5 hours to make a card at home - I don't think I should ever take my act on the road!

Lillian Child said...

Isn't it amazing the feelings you get from your children's achievements! What a fabulous photo of your daughter and and tell her keep up the good work on her grad studies!

Melissa Shea said...

Gorgeous card! I love the PP with the flowers. I don't craft very fast when I'm at a crop either. Chatty, chatty, chatty!

Karin Ã…kesdotter said...

What a wonderful card! LOVE it!

Kelly Booth said...

LOVE the Card so Pretty, I really need to get that stamp set such a fun one!! xo

Emily Keaton said...

I LOVE this pretty card, Amy!! Sounds like your daughter had a great shadow experience!!

Agno said...

Love your desing
Full of talent...
Keep on creating and sharing...
Your so talented !!!!

Kelly Griglione said...

Really love this one ... it's just so HAPPY. I hear you on not being a "mobile crafter" I can't get ANYTHING done when I'm with others. Unless it's something I've already thought of and I need to mass produce it, like invitations or Christmas cards. Then I'm OK.

Kimberly said...

Amy - I LOVE this card! I'm so glad you got some CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and got to ink em' up already! And don't worry, sometimes it takes me that long to make a card BY MYSELF! We don't have a single stamp or scrapbooking store here, so I don't get to go to crops. Crazy, in a city with a million people... :(
Anyway, love your card, as always!

Beverley said...

I'm not a very good mobile crafter either, I always want something I forgot to bring! Love how you used the RS sketch and the patterned paper & flowers are gorgeous.

Angie Tieman said...

Look at those fabby new stamps! Sounds like you had a great time, that's the main thing!

PS I have no doubt your girl has an amazing future in store!
