About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Giggle Note Card

Hello everyone! Sorry I didn't post yesterday. I got caught up in my project and lost all track of time. It's not quite finished, but I will be entering it into 3 challenges I think. At least 2 for sure.

CASology posted a new challenge today:

I knew right away what I wanted to do. I have a digital stamp from I (heart) sketches of 2 giraffes laughing and is perfect for this card.

 Base cards is early espresso from Stampin' UP. The giraffe print paper is actually a desk top back ground for my computer that I printed off and cut to size. The laughing giraffes stamp is from From the Heart Digital Art Stamps and colored with oil pencils. The sentiment was printed from the computer. Below is a closer look at the stamp and sentiment.
I love the giraffes and thought they were perfect for this card.
Feel free to leave questions, comments, concerns.
Have a great evening!
