Think Fast Designs was the inspiration for this weeks Etsy Inspired Challenge Blog - Challenge #134. I choose this darling apron because the print made me instantly think of Cosmo Crickets line Early Bird, perfect for the challenge. I also used a chip board piece from Crafty Secrets, she had the right coffee pot what can I say?
Here's my card for the challenge:
I used Making Memories twine around the front mat
Don't ya just love that coffee pot? She's saying 'Always with a smile'
In the January/February 2011 issue of Paper Crafts magazine Susan Deering West designed a card titled Tea for Two. I just loved how she did the tablecloth and fashioned my two cards after hers. Thanks Susan for the inspiration! Be sure to check out her blog as well, Creative Juice for lots more inspiration.
The backgrounds of my cards (and the envelopes which aren't shown) are made from wallpaper scraps.
After I had cut my shoes out with the Forever Young cart on my Cricut I had the reverse on the paper, so I laid it on a mat and used Tattered Angels leather mist on it. I really like the way it turned out.
The sentiment on the hat if from a Fiskars stamp pack. I believe the ribbon strip is a self sticking Martha Stewart ribbon.
