I haven’t stamped much the past couple of weeks (I was caught up with my other favorite hobby – reading), but I have been keeping up on my blog reading. The past couple of days I’ve seen a few cards using the same sketch that really got my attention. I found the challenge over at Moxie Fab World (sketch). The sketch is from Paper Craft’s latest magazine: Go To Sketches (I *must* get this book!).
What really caught my eye was the use of a speech bubble. This card popped into my head immediately – well, at least the idea of using this specific cat image with a thought bubble that says “you”. The rest of the card took 3 hours to put together, lol.
I had to do the inside of this one to help bring the sentiment to fruition. I really wanted something that said “thinking of you makes me smile”, but I don’t have that specifically and I couldn’t make piecing one together from different stamps look right…so I went with this one – I think the idea still gets across.
