Cherished Time Together

I didn't get a chance to get in my creation mode on Monday.  We took the Little Guy to the pool and the heat just wiped me out!  We had fun, though...and that little 22 1/2 month old does not have any fear!  I think he will be swimming by next summer if not sooner!

I did manage to get in my craft room last night and played around with alcohol inks for a while but all I ended up with was a muddy mess.  But I had fun playing...one thing I learned is that glossy paper does not do well with an embossing gun.  LOL!  It warped my paper and created a bubble.  It was pretty funny looking!

So...I decided to pull out some of my Unity Stamps that I haven't used yet and came up with this card:

Sometimes you just make something and it works!  A lot of times I make something and it doesn't! HAHA!  But the process is what I do this for...not the end result...I just like making...you know?

I used DCWV Linen Closet cardstock and papers.  The stamps I used were all Unity and were from Cherish the Time, Throughout All, Roots and Wings, and Togetherness Generations cons.  I used Close to My Heart Desert Sand and Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip inks.   The flower was made with the Spellbinders Carnation die (I just double cut each layer, but didn't do the largest layers).  The ribbon is from Wright and the pearls are from my stash and I don't know where I got them but they could be from Michael's.  I used the Tim Holtz distress tool to scuff up the edges of the mat and my CM corner rounder to round one corner of the mat and card.

The picture doesn't do it justice...the colors are really nice and subtle.

I also made another Cars character from the Cricut Cars cartridge...this time I did the inimitable Mater!  I think he turned out cute, too. He sure did have a lot of pieces!!!

Happy Crafting!!!
