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:)

  2. 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. :-)

  5. 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 :)

    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.

    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.

  40. 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.

  41. 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!

  42. 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.

  43. 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!
