What's Up?!?

Well - a post in the middle of the week - woohoo!  I've been in my stamping room most of the morning tidying, updating blogs and decided to do a challenge since I took all my examples off my board in my workshop room.  I need new examples with some of the new products from the new catalogue.  So - I participated in the Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.  I'm going to miss being a part of this design team and I thank Holly for the shout out on the blog.

For my creation I used the "What's Up" stamp set and it's co-ordinating punch.  I also cut some extra arrows using the Thinlits Label card dies.  I coloured the rhinestones with the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites marker!  Love, love, love being able to do this!

Here is the sketch!  As you can see, I chose to use arrows instead of flowers - but the sky is the limit on the shapes you can put on your card!

I haven't been doing a lot of posting, but I have not been inactive!  I spent a week creating 160 Thank You cards for a friends of Allison's who got married this past weekend.  I'm still not showing the card - since Kelsey is away right now.  As soon as I know they've opened their wedding gifts I will share a picture of the Thank You card and the card I  created for Allison to give to Kelsey.

Stay posted - I will be adding information about classes and such that I'll have planned for the fall.
Hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by.

Miss designing with you already Joan! Great card... love the black & red colour combo. Can't wait to see those thank you cards either. Thanks for playing along (it feels weird to say that!) with us at Sunday Stamps!

What a fun card, Joan! I'm so glad you are still sharing your talent with us. I love your use of the bold red arrows to accent your sentiment. Thanks for all you've done to make Sunday Stamps challenge blog such a success--I'll miss working with you on the DT and wish you success in all your future crafting endeavors.
