chin up butter cup



Can you guess how long it took to make this card?

5 hours


LOL, I know, right?

Kimberly and Tonya came over to play yesterday and well, I was able to make one card.  We talked and talked and laughed and laughed some more...it was a great time!

My card was inspired by


The paper is Basic Grey Fresh Cut < -- thanks Kimberly!  I love the sentiment on the coordinating chippie! 

Can you see it?  I actually stamped on the color wash panel...I used A Muse ink with the Sweet Stamp Shop's Elegant Flowers set! 

I received my Whisker Graphics Design Team haul and wahooooooooooooooooo! It was literally waiting right outside my front door yesterday...perfect timing!

I used the Divine Twine Deep Pink Bakers Twine on my card.  


Make sure you pop over to Kimberly's blog to check out her take on the same sketch!
