It's Been Too Long...

...and this card took entirely TOO LONG to make!! LOL

I haven't stamped in what seems like ages...and I just couldn't get things going!! I figured the sketch challenge would get my juices flowing...but it was HARD this week...or was it just me?? Tell me it wasn't just me!! LOL

I knew I wanted to use Papertrey's new colors...LOVE them!! So pretty! And I got this backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms awhile back and wanted to use it too. Finally got to use the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, too! Maybe that's the problem...I was trying to use TOOOO MANY new things! Hey, you never know when I will get to stamp again, so I had to pack it all into one challenge!! LOL

This card is going to my friend that was just "surprised" to find out she is pregnant with baby #3...ooops! :)

Stamps: Paisley Bandana Backgrounder (CHF), True Friend (SU!), Starlight Starbright (Verve Visual)
Paper: White, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Pink Patterns DP (all Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery

Other Goodies: Sakura Glitter Pen, Rhinestone Brad, Ribbon, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, Big Kick, Circle Punches, Paper Piercer, White Gel Pen

THIS IS GORGEOUS!!! Love that new pti color!

Thanks for your post on my blog---It is nice to know that someone can relate. Feel free to email me anytime -

I know too well how it feels to be in a new place and leave the home you love (have done it twice and now going for a third time...ugh!)
