It's been awhile....

Since I've read a good book. I just haven't had the time! So when my gramma brought over The Pillars Of The Earth, I let it sit on the book shelf for a few days. To be honest, I was a little intimidated by the size of it. Have you seen that book? It's HUGE! Well a couple of days ago, I picked it up and started reading and have had a hard time putting it down since. It is such a great book, very well written and a pretty easy read. You should check it out if you get the chance! I have a feeling that it is going to be among The Red Tent and The Good Earth as my favorite books.

Ok, so on to this weeks WIR winner-

Kat, please email me and let me know which card you would like to be sent to you!

So, even though I've been having a hard time putting my new book down, I've still had to make time for "work" ;) The girls and I spent some time in the craft room (which I LOVE by the way) and I made three cards using one piece of DP by Tinkering. This paper is just beautiful! I used the set Let's Get Together by There She Goes. I have been having so much fun with this set and I love how I can have the cups coordinate the cups to match the papers that I use.

For the cup, I colored the lid with a white gel pen and paper crimped the "band" around the cup to give it some texture. I used dimensionals to adhere the cup to the oval nestabilities layer which is also on dimensionals. What can I say, I love layers, depth and textures lol! The band across my card is made by using the SU scallop punch and then adding a piece of paper crimped very vanilla card stock.

Supplies: Stamps-Let's Get Together (There She Goes). Paper- Sage Shadow, very vanilla, chocolate chip, very vanilla. Ink- momento tuxedo black, close to cocoa, sage shadow. Accessories- Nestabilities, dimensionals, paper crimpler, scallop punch, scallop corner punch, brads, white gel pen.
