Today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS is to make a card without any stamping. I followed Amy's Sunday Sketch from last week...love this sketch, Amy! I just turned the sketch so I could use the long panel for the sentiment. I used SU's Outlaw DP, made the sentiment on the computer, sponged around the edges of the sentiment panel, and used some new goodies that I picked up yesterday.
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, SU Outlaw DP
Ink: Basic Brown (sponging)
Accessories: Brown Primas, Hodgepodge Hardware Brads, Bangle Beads, 3-D Glue Dots (sentiment panel and large very vanilla panel on the base)
Technique: Sponging, No Stamping
Speaking of yesterday, I got to spend the entire day shopping with my friend Janice (catcrazy). We had a blast!! Thank you, Janice, for all the great stores you took me to. You sure can find awesome deals, girl! ...and you're just plain FUN to hang out with! Looking forward to next weekend too!
We went out for lunch at Cracker Barrel (yummm-o!), then hit Scrapbook Junction where we found some really GREAT 12x12 laser cut scrapbooking sheets (made to order even), went to Stampede (love that store!), picked up some paper at a discount store, and then made a quick trip into Michael's where I picked up the antique bangle beads (the three hardware pieces that look like brads) on the card I made today. I got the brown primas at Stampede yesterday as well. Way to put things right to use, huh?!?!
The day was even more exciting yesterday when our long-time friend Lori (LMcAree) called us while we were at Scrapbook Junction. Lori, it was great to finally hear your voice after all these months of chatting online!! You're a hoot and I can't wait for our weekend getaway. It's not too far away now! Can't wait, my friend!!
...and last, but definitely not least....my blogging friend LeAnne (wee inklings) gave me an AWARD yesterday! How sweet!! LeAnne, I'm so sorry that I missed your post yesterday since I was gone all day, but you totally made my morning!!! You're such a great friend to talk to and I can't wait to meet up with you as well. You always make me smile!
It's a rainy day here in PA....BUT....it's Friday! I hope you have an awesome day. :)
