Whew!!  What a week I have had.  Last night and all day today my baby has been quite sick and pretty much stuck to mom.  I always feel so bad when my babies are sick....especially my littlest one because she doesn't understand the concept of being sick.  I have also been taking care of so many DT projects lately.  I will get to share them with you in a little bit. 

I took a little break from doing design team work to make a card for CPS sketch 203.  I rotated the sketch for my card.  I stamped with acrylic paint onto was messy, but fun and I love the texture.  I was quite happy with it until my dear husband told me that this is the first card that I have made that looks like it was done by a child.  =( 

What do you think??

Here is a little bit of a close up:

I even completed the inside of the card with the rest of the sentiment from the newly released SRM Stickers:

        Cardstock, stamp, ink: Stampin' Up!
        Stickers: SRM Stickers
        Die cut label: Cricut Expression with
          Once Upon A Princess cartridge
        Other: fabric, thread, needle, raffia, button
Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. Awww sorry to hear your baby is not well... Mine are grown up now, but I still remember when one one of them was so bad and stayed up all night clinging to me. But that's what mummies are for :)
    And your card is gorgeous, can't understand why he said that, it's beautiful.. but the important thing is that you enjoyed doing it. I also love to make a card or two now and then which are not for DTs and I enjoy doing these so much. Hugs xxx

  2. I hope your baby feels better soon! I don't think your card looks like it was made by a child. Its very pretty and elegant!

  3. I think it is great. I was drawn to it right away. I love the texture of the fabric with this stamp set. Can't wait to copy you.

  4. I love this too...very pretty and SO not looking like a child did it. Ask your husband to take another look...! TFS!

  5. I think it's really beautiful. Those kinds of cards are always hard for me to make, but I really like that sentiment.

  6. Wow, what an amazing card. I love it when you try out new techniques. Tell your hubby beauty is in the eye of other crafty beholders, LOL
