We Need To Talk

July 22, 2016

It is so hot in Georgia!  I love to be outside, but I just can't stay outside long in the heat and humidity.  I found a few extra minutes to sneak in my "teepee" (I just found this at Hobby Lobby)

to create a card for the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  I haven't had time to enter any challenge since moving, and hope to start playing along more often.  I love black and white cards, so this was perfect!

I attended the Scrap Booking Expo in Duluth, GA last week.  I had so much fun looking at new products and I spent way to much money!  I found a stamp company that was new to me and feel in LOVE with their stamps.  The Stamps of Life are fun, bold and whimsical!  I am sharing my first card made with one of my new sets.

I used a variety of black and white papers to create my card.  I thought the number paper was perfect for my phone!  I adore old retro phones and always wanted a pink one when I was a child.  Countless hours of my youth were spent on the phone.  I used the Phone4You stamp set and the matching dies. You can't see it in my photo, but I used silver foil to create the circle for the dial.  Pearls were added for fun.  I just love the way it turned out. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

Wishing you a fantastic weekend!
