Domestic Goddess

Friday, July 17, 2009

Happy Friday to you all!
(I'd love to say y'all in a southern accent, but coming from a New Zealand born, Australian raised sounds ridiculous! LOL)

Today's card uses my very first stamp set I bought from Hanna Stamps and she is still one of my favorites. :) This is one of my first cards using this set that got me noticed by Kristi and eventually led to me being on the Hanna team. :D Come a long way baby! LOL

Loving the bright, summery colors on this card. I used papers from K&Company's Raspberry Fizz collection and paired it with some textured Bazzil Basics cardstock. I used this week's Unscripted Sketches #14 for the layout. Looking at this now, I wish I had colored Hanna's apron in more of a contrasting color...c'est la vie, I guess.

The Hanna Stamps challenge HSC78 this week is being hosted by the super sweet Adela Rossol and her challenge is to create a 3D project. I couldn't come up with anything quick enough, but I will put my thinking cap on this weekend.

Speaking of this weekend; the babe and I are off to Maine for a mini getaway with her grandparents and my inlaws. Hubby has to work since he just started his new job. We're staying in a cabin on some campgrounds somewhere near a huge lake (I wasn't quite paying attention to all the details back when we were talking about going). Hoping to relax a little and maybe get my mojo juices flowing. :) I've scheduled a few projects to show you while I'm away so you don't miss me too much! hehe (A girl can daydream!)

Take care and stay safe!

No need to fix what is already perfect. This is a great Hanna card and I love the colors you used with the contrast of the black gingham ribbon.
