Take Time for Yourself

Today's project is for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch challenge. I used one of MFT's A La Mode stamps for the first time. I resisted these for a while but then suddenly three just appeared in my stash. I really don't know how that happened (wink). I stamped her onto Bazzill Simply Smooth cardstock and then colored with Copic markers. I cut the image out and then glued it to the Heidi Swapp chipboard clock piece which happened to fit perfectly inside the MFT Doily Die-namic. I combined some old (Urban Lily circa 2004) with new Echo Park Be Mine patterned paper and used the letter "O" from an older Ki Memories chipboard alphabet as a frame for my sentiment. 

I even did a bit of decorating on the inside to finish up the sentiment. I don't normally do this either because I don't actually stamp a sentiment until I'm ready to send it or because I need it to be blank for Operation Write Home donations.

Products: My Favorite Things stamp and Die-namics, Echo Park and Urban Lily dp, Heidi Swapp chipboard and plastic pieces, Doodlebug button, Kaisercraft pearl, Strano ribbon, Copic markers

Thanks for stopping by. I'm still sick but managing to get a few things done around here anyway.


  1. I thought I recognized that old Urban Lily paper, LOL! What a perfect mix of goodies on this one and framing the sentiment with the KI 'O' is ingenious... LOVE that idea! This is such a pretty card!
