For about the last week, I’ve spent the majority of my craft time experimenting with things that will become more clear over the next few weeks.
The problem with experimenting is that it rarely ends in a finished craft, as evidenced by the lack of new cards posted here.
So today, after coloring a page full of stamps, I finally ended up with one I could do something with. This is Mimi from Penny Black. How adorable is she?
The card design is based on CPS #193. I didn’t feel like searching through my stash for coordinating papers, so I decided to make some of my own with a Hero Arts stamp, Distress Ink, and an embossing folder.
I adore the “Merry Everything” sentiment. So simple, but so full of joy.
