November Paper Trey Ink Blog Hop

Happy Friday!
Is everyone out shopping today?  Me not so much.  I really hate the crowds and waiting in line.  I am really an online shopper. I have my list made at least and I will try to get some things started.  We shall see.  I did go to Michael's yesterday when they opened at 4:00 pm.  I got some holiday decorations and several presents for the boys.  They had 50% off the Crayola sets and that was a bargain and then I got an extra 30% off that!  I then stocked up on adhesive.  Nothing crafty in my 2 carts but lots of goodies.  I am going to stop by my lss and pick up some goodies that they are having on sale though.

Today I am going to link up to this month's challenge over at Paper Trey Ink.  The challenge this month was to create something using this BEAUTIFUL prompt.


Isn't that pretty?  Oh I wish my house looked like that!  Well it took me a minute or two to come up with something.  I got out all my stamps and dies and just started playing.  Here is what I came up with.
I layered my Crate Paper and October Afternoon paper.  I then broke out my dies and layered my dies.  The inside die I stamped and colored with my Prismacolors and gamsols.  The Jenni Bowlin ink really matched perfectly and a Siehled With A Kiss card would not exist if it didn't have a touch of twine!

Supplies
paper-crate paper, october afternoon
cardstock-neenah solar white
stamps-dies-paper trey ink
ink-jenni bowlin, hero arts
twine- paper trey ink
button-basic grey
misc- sewing maching

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back on next week with some new projects.  I have been creative this past week!  I can't wait to share them with you!  Have a great weekend!

I went to Michaels too, but that was it. My mom and I wanted to do something crafty, but I have all the crafty things in Chicago! But I was not venturing out to shop in the craziness!
