No, it is not a mirage, a miracle maybe :0) !! But yes, I have posted a new card! It seems like FOREVER . . .
This card was inspired by two separate challenges;
The new Sketch Girl 19 challenge is up today! It is being sponsored by Sew Easy digital stamps. Click on the link on my sidebar to take a look at all of the challenge details - with the opportunity to win a gift certificate to Sew Easy and DT inspired cards. ETA: Oops! Looks like I'm further ahead than I thought - Sketch Girl 19 goes live tomorrow (May 30th).
Paper Makeup Stamps Makeup for the Weekend challenge this week is a color challenge. I took the liberty of "tweaking" the Bayou Blue color to more of a tealish blue and squeaking in just a peek of the Summer Sun and Perfect Plum (A.K.A purple). Click on the link on my sidebar to hop over to the PMS blog and take a look at the challenge details there!
This card uses image and sentiment stamps from PaperMakeup's May release. At least I'm ahead on ONE thing, I've got a Father's day card done!! Gotta love those monsters :0) For the vertical element in the SG19 sketch, I used ribbon to mimic the shape of a tie to coordinate with Papa monster! It wasn't as wide as I would like but you still get the idea don't you?? I haven't tied to many tie's in my lifetime and had to put the ribbon around my neck to get it just right :0)
I hope you get a chance to play along with one if not both of these challenges. I know the weather and the long weekend are keeping many away, but SG19 goes on for 2 weeks and MFTW is up and running until next Friday!!
Have a fabulous weekend - no matter what your plans are!
