I'm back again with one more card for the challenge at Time Out. There's still a week left to join in the Home Sweet Home challenge, where we have this inspiration photo:
This time around, I simply went with the butterfly element in the photo and created this one layer card. First I stamped the girl whose name is Cora, by the way, in black.
I'm going to digress a bit to share a little story about that girl: she's the main girl in my new set One Cool Chick and she was drawn in 1974 -- that's right, 43 years ago -- by my dad back when he was courting my mom. (They ended up eloping and having a civil ceremony in December 1975.) My dad loved to draw, especially people (unfortunately I didn't get that particular talent for drawing people from him!), and because he didn't really have a lot of money to buy my mom expensive gifts, he simply gave her his hand made love letters and poems (sometimes he'd do song lyrics) accompanied by his own illustrations. I remember how excited I was when my mom shared with me many, many years ago her little box containing every single illustrated love letter my dad gave her. A year ago, I asked for mom's and dad's permission to turn a couple of the illustrations into stamps. I had my sister scan the love letters and I simply cleaned up the images and did a little bit of editing on them so they'd work as stamps. (My dad had colored his illustrations.) So you're meeting one of them...Cora, the Cool Chick. Some time in May, you'll meet the other one, Rudi, the Cool Dude :o)
Aannnyyyywayyy....after stamping Cora, I masked her and then stamped the flowers in Becca's new set, Sweet and Sassy Mom + the cute butterfly from Shirley's Winged Things + the cool sentiment and then I finished the card by rounding one corner.
Check out the cards that the TO team + guest designer Michelle made and then come play with us! STAMPlorations is sponsoring the challenge. One winner (voted by the design team) will receive a $15 gift certificate and another winner (randomly drawn from all entries) will win her choice of STAMPlorations product the design team used.
