So Grapeful For You

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a fabulous week!! It's my turn to post at Getting Cricky and I have a punny card to share with you today.


This is a bittersweet post for me...Kristal has decided to close her store for now so it will be my last as a Design Team member. I've been with this DT almost two years...my first design team...and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed working with Kristal's fabulous stamps and getting to know so many wonderful people. It has been such an amazing experience and I will treasure it always :)


The paper for this card is from Bo Bunny's Garden Girl paper stack. The bottom two layers were cut with Spellbinders Card Creator Matting Basics A & B. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs More Food For Thought stamp set, stamped with Versafine ink in Black Onyx.

A Spellbinders Big Scalloped Rectangle Small die, followed by a Classic Rectangles Small die was used fr the image. The grapes are a Spellbinders Assorted Fruit die, popped up with foam tape for dimenstion. It was inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Concord Grape, Gathered Twigs and Forest Moss. The skittles are from my sweet friend Carri of Doubleclick - AKA ABusyBee, and the gorgeous crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Craft It Up & Link It Up - Use a Pun
  2. DL.Art Thankful Thursday- May Linky Party
  3. Sunday Funday #9 - May Linky Party
Thanks so much for stopping by today :)

lisa,I know its hard to end a team but it always opens door to something else. especially with your talent! Your card is gorgeous, the rich purples are divine, I LOVE it ;)

Amber Holder said...

This is gorgeous!!! I have that paper too, and it's so pretty, but I struggle with knowing how to use it. I pinned this to help inspire me as I especially love the layout. I know the end of a DT is hard, but I'm sure you'll continue to have fun with your designing for your own blog, and will have many more DT opportunities in your future :)

Best crafty wishes!

My sweetest friend, I am so grapeful for YOU! :o) Kristal was so blessed to have you along and I know she will equally treasure the memories you shared. :o) This card is gorgeous, my talented Lisa! The colors are so rich and vibrant and I love the design. The interior is so pretty, too. And gosh, that ribbon is just gorgeous and I love the use of skittles. They look like super shiny grapes that rolled away all willy nilly. :o) Beautifully done as always, my amazing friend. I love every facet of this beautiful, punny card. I hope you have a twinkly night! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
