MFW: Camera Craze & TSTR #155

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Morning, y'all!  Just popping in to share a sweet, girly, little creation and a few more of those snow pics.  Enjoy!
I started this card by piecing together the notebook and pink, skinny, stripe, patterned papers on a White, cardstock mat; machine stitching, with white-threaded, zig-zag stitches, around its edges; and stamping the "remember this: IT'S YOUR DAY!" sentiment, in Jet Black ink, vertically, in the bottom right corner.
I then wrapped a length of white, seam binding ribbon, vertically, around the prepped piece, between the two patterned papers; tied it, in a dressy bow, near the top of the prepped piece; and embellished it with a pink button, laced with a couple of hemp twine bows, before adhering the entire thing, with foam tape, to the Kraft, cardstock, card face.
The frame was made by layering five, White, cardstock die-cuts one on top of the other and glittering it.  I then backed it with a sheet of ivory, text, patterned paper, which had three stars die cut from its center.  The various, pink, patterned papers were then filled in behind the die-cut stars, before it was adhered, with foam tape, just below the embellished bow and to the left of the stamped sentiment.  A "DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG" label was tucked in above its top edge; and a stamped, in Jet Black ink, on White cardstock, colored with colored pencils and mineral spirits, and hand cut out camera, adhered with foam tape, fills in its center.  A touch more glitter for the flash and a bit of Crystal Effects for the lens complete the look.
Inspiration for this card came from the Camera Craze Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and The Shabby Tea Room's Week #155: Pink Party.
Now, how about those pics I promised?  It's really hard to tell how much is out there, until you're in the thick of it.  We got another nine to ten inches of snow at the time these pics were taken, not including the two inches the weather people said melted on contact.  Then, two inches more was on the ground this am, and it's still coming down.  I just love that it's so easy to get my kiddos out to play in the cold, when there's snow on the ground ;).  Power went out for thousands of people across our area, but we were fortunate to have heat all through the cold night.  PTL!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by, and have a wonderful Wednesday!
