So Many Hats So Little Time!

Happy Thursday, everyone! I hope you are having a great week! It is just flying by here. I can't believe it is almost the weekend again. Sheesh, where does the time go? Speaking of time...
Time is the theme of my card today. I started out with white card stock and then dabbed on Tim Holtz Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick and Old Paper Distress Ink. Then I inked a Hero Arts stamp with Tea Dye Distress Ink and stamped it over the colors for a subtle background image. I used a K Andrew stamp from her Fashionable Friends set.
Aren't the sentiments fabulous?! At least $1 from every set sold directly benefits Cancer Angels. Great stamps - great cause! Click HERE to purchase your own set.

  10. A great card... terrific use of Distress Inks. I LOVE the look!!! I am obsessed with them and am bent on buying every color. But my reasoning is "you can do so much with them!) Right?
    Have a wonderful evening, Lisa!

  12. My friend... how I love this creation. :o) Lace, pearls, ribbon, and flowers? **swoon** This is just gorgeous! You are a pro at backgrounds (well, and everything else too) because I completely thought that was store-bought paper. This isn't the first time you've fooled me at first glance. ;) All the colors are beautiful and it creates such a wonderful, vintage, feminine vibe. The sparkly accents on the clock are fabulous, too. Stunning card once again, my super crafty friend! :o) (Guess what? My boyfriend knows you by name! I talk about your cards often enough that he totally knows you. Teehee!)

    Hugs and blessings! :o)
