Time To Relax

Here comes post #2 for the day...... do you need a topper on your coffee? I'll run get the pot.... this pumpkin spice coffee is soooooooooo yummy! :)


Imagine my surprise when I saw that another of the cards I made for Inky Antics appeared on their blog this morning. This particular card was one I really had fun making. I love it when I can get good and inky on a project, and this card most certainly fits that bill!


My dear, sweet friend, Nancy Baier, designed this gorgeous stamp set, 'Home Sweet Home.' it is one of the latest releases over at Inky Antics this fall. My card uses papers from the Sweet Threads collection by Basic Grey, a fab embossing folder by Tim Holtz, one of my 'go to' dies by Cheery Lynn, and some pretty eyelet ribbon trim by May Arts that I dyed.

There is a LOT of inking on both the card base and the image itself. I wanted to create the look of aged brick, as well as a clay plant holder that has a bit of moss growing on it.

Don't forget to enter the blog candy found on this post for your chance to win a 'Christmas Tag' stamp set. You have until Wed. night to enter!

Thanks for stopping by! :)
