...of July is here already! I can't believe it! Summer has just been flying by. I think we have done something almost everyday of our summer, swimming, play dates, adventures around the town, appointments, etc. I have loved spending time with my 2 kiddos this summer. I will admit that it will be nice when school starts again so I can get to craftier things. I think I have only made a dozen or so cards this summer, a few layouts, and some boxes and other altered items. But it's been nice to just take a break from it all.
Basic Grey Challenges has taken a sort hiatus this summer too but it is almost ready to kick back off again. I have my sketches and inspirations for the next four challenges coming up and I am starting to work in them. The BGC blog looks a little different but it is going to be just as fun as it was before. The challenges will be good and the prizes when we have them will be awesome too. Hope on over and have a look at the new layout. It's so cute and fun and stay tuned!
I just finished making a card this morning. It is for the latest challenge at Caardvarks, which is to make a baby or wedding themed card. I went to Michael's yesterday and stumbled upon these little kit packages called "Vintage Findings" by Making Memories. I saw the baby kit and thought a cute care could be made with it. I think these kits are geared more toward scrapbook layouts but you could probably make 2 or 3 cards out of one too. The baby kit came with 21 pieces. I think I used most of it on the card I made. The little crocheted duck is just the cutest.
Items used: Making Memories Vintage findings Baby kit, Stampin' Up Cardstock, Daisy D's patterned paper & flower diecuts from the Chasing Butterflies Collection, Papertrey Bitty Blessings and Mixed Messages stamp sets, We R Memory Keepers Crystal eyelet (came with the crop-a-dile)
Well that's all for now. I hear the kiddos and so I am off to see what adventures we will be doing today. I hope everyone has a great week ahead!
