Clearly Creative Blog Hop

I have to say when I read Nichole's challenge for this month's blog hop, I was a little intimidated. In the past transparencies and I have NOT gotten along. If anyone can clue me in on how NOT to get fingerprints I would truely appreciate that! LOL! I decided to try one more time. I am not good with an exacto knife or free hand cutting so I knew I had to use the transparency as my card base. My layout was inspired by a beautiful snowflake card made by my friend Sue. I would love to show you Sue's card, BUT SHE DOES NOT HAVE A BLOG!!!! UH UM MISS SUE!!

I stamped the little sailboat image from Bitty Baby Blessings in Brilliance ink and colored with my copics. I believe it was Niki who had this color combo on her blog. I LOVED it. Aqua Mist, red and white...who would have knew!! I debated whether to put the tiny baby face on the sail. I let my kids vote...two to one they said no faces. I can always add them later. I even fired up my ancient sewing machine!!! This was F-U-N!!

Wedding Wishes

ETA...I will be participating in the bloghop this evening, so please come back!! I can't wait!

Life throws curve balls at you and the past few weeks have been no exception. My mind has been different places at different times throughout the past two weeks, I think I am still searching for it!! I did manage to get a few things done in the stamp room! I HAD to have PTI's Grid line Guide stamp set. I will will take some practice. I took Nichole's advise and tried on some scratch paper first. I probably should have continued to "practice"!! This was a card I made per request of a co-worker.
