I haven't blogged in a long time.  Life has been busy with a move and the kids.  I am going to try to get back into it as a form of recreation and spend some time in my wonderful craft room.

I saw on Facebook that Peachy Keen stamps is ceasing manufacturing.  I adore their face stamps.  They may be my favorite crafting item, EVER.  I bought what I could and I am going to get back into my crafting as much as possible.   So bye bye Peachy Keen Stamps.  I sure will miss you.  :(

Card for Peachy Keen Tuesday challenge and for The Paper Variety MPS challenge

This  card was  designed using a sketch for the Peachy Keen Tuesday Challenge.
This is an easel card, my first one. This is the card when it is open.   I love how it turned out but I am sure glad it is done.  Stamping those sweet Peachy faces on that glitter paper was kind of hard too.  I found a video on youtube from split coast stampers on how to make an easel card.  Here is the Peachy Keen sketch.

This card was also designed for The Paper Variety My Pink Stamper challenge.  It was made using ONLY pink, black and white.  That was a bit of a trick bu I am pretty happy with the outcome.

Here is a pic of the card when it is closed.

The recipe for this card is:

cardstock from Michaels
glitter paper and patterned paper from Hobby Lobby
Fiskars border punch
Peachy keen stamps Critter faces and every day face assortment
Sakura gelly roll pen-white
Racoon from Create a critter
Hearts and heart border from doodle charms altered in the gypsy
letters from doodletype welded in the gypsy
Cuttlebug and swiss dots folder

I hope you like it too!!
