OLW37 - more words ...

... I've managed to make another quick one for this week's challenge over at Simplicity.  Susan wants us to make cards using only sentiments - no embellisments, well maybe a little glitter, gems or ribbon.


Stamps:  Inkadinkado - Friendly Advice
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black, Tangelo, Bahama Blue

This one was very easy - I have a super set of stamps featuring quote from children.  I remember when I saw the set that I thought it was just lovely, but sadly it's not really been used.  I think I'm going to make a few more cards for this challenge using other stamps form the set.  But it's grey and dull, and sometimes that can make you feel a bit low.  So this quote was appropriate.  I notice now that it's been scanned - that I got a bit of black ink onf the colour bit - darn!!  I also think I need slightly stronger colours!

Just got back from Scouts - we had a fun evening!  And next week the Scouts are cooking my tea!

I love that stamp set, but haven't been able to find it. Adorable card! (and I just love that quote!!)

Interesting idea to make sentiment only cards. I tend not to buy many script stamps but that might change. Would love to be a fly on the wall when the boys are cooking. ;-)

Would love to know what you end up eating next week. This is a really interesting concept - I'd not noticed the black until you said, in fact it looks like it should be part of the design.Have a good weekend.

I love this little sentiment, Deborah! I have 3 young ones--so this just makes me smile!! The colors you've used make it even sweeter. I have the "many thanks" set on your previous post post, too--it's a great set!! I need to pull that one back out! Wanted to thank you for visiting and commenting on my pin cushion! I really do appreciate it!!
