Laugh, Smile, LOVE

Summer has flown by here and boy has our family been busy! Baseball, baseball, and more baseball it seems...and not much time for creativity. Luckily as summer winds down, there is more time for me to get crafty in my studio. I'm excited to play along today with two fun challenges!  


Both the gorgeous Curtain Call- Hibiscus inspiration AND the Ellen Hutson August Pin-Sights challenge jumped out to me as I was pulling out my stamps the other day and so I happily played along. I stamped the flower and leaves from Mondo Peony in black ink and watercoloured them in with Distress markers. The sentiment is from Lovely. A stitched edge and a few clear sequins finish off the panel, and it is all adhered to a kraft card base. 





I felt a little rusty getting inky and messy in my studio after a long summer hiatus, but I think I have shook all that off and am back to my creative self. :) Thanks for stopping in today and I'll see you again soon!
