Once Upon A Time ….


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop.  If you didn't hop onto my blog via Jackie Rakoski's blog then you might want to hop back over to the very start of the blog hop which is at Christie Ortman's blog.

This week being the 1st Wednesday of the month, it is my turn to host the challenge which of course is a sketch challenge.

This week the Design Team are using “Story Time Sophia” and “Aloha Sophia” which are both the stamp sets that are on special this week … 35% off!

It is funny how I haven’t created a circle card in ages and here I go this week posting two of them in a row!!

For my card I used “Story Time Sophia” and also “Soakin’ Up The Sun” because I wanted Sophia to be sitting under a tree while she was ready her book hehe! After stamping Sophia, I masked her and stamped my tree and then I used my copic airbrush to create the sky and ground areas.

I again used my cricut to cut out the main layers of my card, but this time round I used the SCAL program.


Want to play along with us
