Today Remi starts preschool. Jess had to wait until she was 2 and then she had to wait until there was an opening since she is only going 2 days a week. It will be interesting to see how this goes. I think we will have a few weeks of adjustment and then she will settle in. This should free up Jess 4 days a week which means I will also be freed up to play in my craft room and work ahead.
Over at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a sketch challenge this time.
I decided to play with some of the Falling in Love dsp on this one ~ specifically one that is not one of my favorite. In the past I have shared a way to use the dsp you don't care for by covering it with another layer. My card today is another way to dsp by using a small amount of it on a panel.
I began with a piece of Blushing Bride card stock. I embossed it with the Falling Petals embossing folder. This piece was attached to the Very Vanilla card base. I chose the piece of dsp that was to me very busy. This was mounted onto a piece of Sahara Sand card stock. I attached this panel to the card base with dimensionals. All I needed then was a sentiment. The Crazy for You set allowed me to create my own sentiment. I stamped it in Sahara Sand ink and flagged the ends. I add it to my card base with dimensionals. Here is my completed creation.
