If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

CCEE Sketch Challenge

The challenge for Monday, September 7 was this sketch provided by our hostess, Frances.



And this is my resulting card. The bottom half is a jumbo wheel called Bright Blessings. I don't use my wheels as wheels though. I always remove the rubber by slicing with a craft blade right at the seam, and peeling it off. It comes off very easily. To stamp, I lay down the sheet of rubber on a scrap of paper, ink it up, remove it from the paper and lay it close to the edge of my work table. Then I take the paper to it. For this particular one, I stamped the portion that has the 'give thanks' leaf again on a scrap and cut it out.




Recipe: stamps- Whimsical Autumn by Carolyn King ( manufactured by Gina K. Designs) (basket and ivy), Bright Blessings (jumbo wheel, SU); paper- natural, designer paper (Basic Grey "Wassail, spice tea"); ink- always artichoke (SU), black archival; accessories- antique gold brads, brown woven ribbon (Offray), Creative Memories circle cutting system, pop dots, leaf stencil (source unknown), Prismacolor Pencils and Turpenoid.
