Warm Thoughts

Hope everyone is continuing to enjoy their holiday! Another few days before we get back to "normalcy"...or "everyday living". But until then, I will enjoy everyday! Even though I am working, it is very quiet, and a very welcome break!

I decided to do the Starving Artistamp Clearly Cool Challenge, over at Paper Craft Planet. I am still trying to figure my way around PCP, but love trying out acetate in my card making. A few months ago I picked up a couple of sheets of Hambly Screen Prints at my LSS. Honestly, I was not really sure what I was going to do with them, but I thought they were pretty cool! They would be great in a an acrylic album or any album for that matter.

I created an A2 size card out of one of the sheets, and used Coco from Doodlefactory. I glued him on a Technique Tuesday technique tile (another one of those things I thought was cool, bought without really knowing what I would ever do with it!). I edged the tile in SU! Chocolate Chip, and used a HOTP dots background stamp with SU! Baja Breeze as the background. I used Copics to color Coco!

Inside I just put the simple Warm Thoughts sentiment. Now that I finished the card, I realized there is no where to sign it...hmmm...not that I would give this one away anyway! I love it!

With the new year coming, I usually do not make any resolutions. But, I am going to mix some things up! What about you??
