Wait For Me! I want to play too! H2H




Well, the weeks keep flying by and I keep missing the deadlines for the wonderful Heart2Heart challenges, so I tried a little stampin' yesterday in between a beautiful blue sky bike ride with my beautiful blue eyed boys and creating a scrumptious sockeye salmon supper. Go me. I put the cards together this morning and went grocery shopping while waiting for the ink to dry :)

So, I have to say, I was not super impressed with the color combo but have been bound and determined to play this week if it kills me so here's what I did. I used CTMH's glorious textured cardstock that I bought on that smokin' deal they had a few months back. I random stamped the Honey with Honey and Autumn Terracotta and inked the edges with the same colors also. Card base in the New England Ivy, stamped the sentiment and double matted both. Super Simple. I used some of these darling and delightful wooden butterfly buttons to finish it off, I dragged them across the Autumn Terracotta Ink Pad ... hope that will lighten up a bit over night.
I know nothing fancy but hey, I did it. I played. Again, go me.
