Chase the clouds away….

Hello Crafty Friends,

It’s my turn to post a project for April’s Stamp Challenge over at the

Crafty Card Gallery and this is what I have in store!

 For this challenge we we’re asked to either use a stamp set that’s been sitting on our desk a while,

something you bought and forgot about, or your most recent purchase.

 Well,  My card today has a mixture of all 3.


 First, The Umbrella stamp I decided I have had for at least 8 years.

 The Washi tape under the green paper is something that was sitting on my desk and

I had yet to put it away.

 Finally, The sentiment on this card is new!  It is from Close To My Heart…..and I love it.

The stamp set is called Card Chatter- Sympathy Occasions… and I highly recommend it.

 The inside of the card reads…..”and chase the clouds away!”

Made the clouds myself and the scallop is a Die cut from MFT.

The green umbrella was paper pieced.

  Have a great day!

“Purse”onally what do you think?

“Purse”onally this is the hardest and cutest card I have ever made! I stumbled across this idea at least 10 years ago from a Scrapbook magazine. I would be happy to plug the magazine if I knew what it was! Oops! Because I don’t like clutter or like having to many magazines accumulating around the house, every so often I go through each magazine page by page and rip out the ideas I want to create “someday”. Then discard the rest. This was always one of my favorites, but never felt I was talented enough to pull it off. Well, all thats changed and I am starting to gain confidence thanks to my friends over at Stamp TV.
Thank you Asela and Gina K!
