A-Muse-A-Palooza Twilight Blog Challenge


Woohoo!! I'm so excited! A Muse has a super cool challenge on their blog this week! The inspiration word for the challenge is Twilight!!! How fabulous is that??? Of course it made me think of the books/movie first thing.

Here's what I made:

I had a tough time deciding on which sentiment to use, was tempted to do "you're cool" or "have a scent-sational day" but opted for "life's simple pleasures" instead. Twilight sure is one of life's simple pleasures!!

All stamps used on this card are by A Muse Artstamps, inks by Memento. Notecard by A Muse. Misc. items used: Marvy oval punch, sponge, blender pen, decorative scissors, dimensional tape.

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! I'm thankful these challenges are here to get me inspired again!

Has it really been a month??

Yikes, that's a long time to go without blogging!

Been busy with end of the year school stuff and a little trip to Chicago, haven't been too crafty lately, sorry! (I know, nothing new there) Hopefully I'll get my groove back soon!

Are you all excited for A-Muse-a-palooza!!! The fun has already begun! I wasn't able to participate in last week's blog challenge to create a card inspired by the word "square," but made time for this week's challenge to make a card inspired by the word "ribbon" and combined it with the square challenge just to make myself feel better.

I was thinking about what to do with ribbon and decided that other than tying bows or knots, I love threading and wrapping ribbon. I pulled out my Fiskars Treading Water border punch and started from there.

Stamps, ribbon and papers by A Muse Artstamps (not sure of the brand on the shimmery brown CS but got it at the A Muse shop), Inks by Memento, Copic and ColorBox, brad by SU!, flowers by Prima.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're all off to a happy Summer so far!
