Sneak Peek all Week

I made this card for Josh, my first born grandson, who's birthday was on January 15. When he picked up the envelope he asked me if I made him another cool card. I told him I really had fun making this one. It's good to know that a 17 year old appreciates a home made card.

New Heart 2 Heart Challenge in the New Year

Our first challenge in the New Year is a color challenge. mmmm.... Sky and Pear. Two new fun colors in the Summer line up. And....Sorbet if we want.


Generally, for me, blue and green is outdoor nature colors. So, I decided to use the stamp set "A Tweet" with the bird (blue) and the leafy twig (green). The challenge said we could add Sorbet if we wanted. Yea, I've got Sorbet flowers. To give the card a slight vintage look I used the postcard from Postcard Travel Series for a background.

CTMH Supplies:
Paper: Olivia, Manifique
Cardstock: Colonial White, Cocoa
Ink: Sky, Pear, Sorbet. Cocoa
Stamps: A Tweet, Postcard Travel Series
Embellishments: Cocoa Opaques
Satin Ribbon, Border Punch

Now for some more Sky and Pear inspiration be sure to visit the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog and take a peak. Heart 2 Heart has a terrific and amazing group of designers. You won't want to miss any of the artwork posted Here.
