Inky Fingers Kit Challenge

Hi friends! I'm back today with another challenge from Inky Fingers. Every fourth Monday Inky Fingers does a Kit Challenge. Each designer that participate receives a kit of supplies that we must use to make a card.

So when I received my kit I knew that I wanted to make a Valentine's card of some sort. I only had 2 obstacles in my way...and antique brad and some mini silver brads and I couldn't see them working in my design. I actually made my card without these two items. Only later to find out that we were to use all the items in the kit. Back to the drawing board.

Here's my card with those items and I'll explain how I incorporated them.





I could easily see using the mini brads but not the antique brad with the colors that I had to use. So I decided to emboss my antique brad! I embossed it black so that it would fit in better with my card. I had already made my card and didn't want to scrap my design because I really liked what I had, so I'm happy with the end result!

Here's the inside of my card...



Sweet and simple! Now head on over to Inky Fingers and see what the other designers have come up with and if you would like to participate in this challenge you can order do so as well!

Happy Mail

Hi friends! I'm fighting a migraine today so I thought I would share some happy mail that I received recently from my secret sister. She used the Ex Libris background stamp!

I've had my eye on this stamp for some time and after receiving this card...I think I'm sold that I should own it! LOL...I liked how she cut part of an element away from the background and added other diecuts and punches. I especially like her color choices. Here is what the background stamp looks like.




Here's the card that I received!




I hope that you have enjoyed viewing my happy mail and please come back tomorrow when I hope to feel like stamping and to have something to share!
