You're my type


Yesterday, I was able to sneak away from the family and have some quality crafty time with my crafty girlfriends.  We try to meet up at a local Archiver's every few weeks.  It's always a riot- it's so much fun to spend time with people who share your passion for paper crafting.  We share many laughs, and if we are lucky, manage to get a few things done as well. ;o)

One of the cards I made yesterday was for Avery Elle's AEI{heart}U challenge. This month's challenge was to create a card based off an inspiration photo.  Here is what I came up with:


Since the photo is black and white with just a touch of red, I tried to mimic those colors in my project.I first stamped the stripes from Knotty onto cream cardstock.  The stripes reminded me of the boots that the girl is wearing in the photo.

Next, I created a tag using All Occasion Tags and tried to create the subway art look with the sentiments and tiny hearts from Lots of Love. I added some patterned paper from Crate Paper and finally a big bow tied with New Moon grosgrain ribbon.

This was this month's inspiration photo.  It makes rainy days look very chic, don't you think?

That's all for me today.  Thank you for stopping by!
