Hey everyone! I set aside the entire afternoon to work in my scrapbook room. Who cares if the kitchen needs picked up, right? Anyway, I set off to make two of these cards. I cut all the pieces and had stamps laid out, but then my circles that I punched got off center, the stamps didn't ink properly and I had to snag pieces from the second set to finish the first card. Which turned out cute--pretty much identical to the inspiration card but using supplies I had in my room. Here's mine:
(Bikes from Heron Arts, sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps)
I like it, and with all my cycling friends I think I'll find a good person to send it to. But since I had to steal pieces from the second card (since I really wanted two on hand), and well...at this point I really didn't want to recut pieces, I found myself looking at a pile of discarded circles and rings just haphazardly strewn on my desk. And I loved the look, especially with the grey and black together. So I abandoned the thought of the second card like the one above and put this together instead.
And oh sweet circles, I just love the clean, crisp result.
The stamped sentiment is by My Craft Spot (no longer in biz, sniff!). I honestly like the second card even better than the first. What a pleasant outcome due to sheer laziness.
Have a great weekend, everyone. Mine will be spent in a gym--gotta love basketball season!
