Witcha Doin'

I made this card for my sister, Connie. We call each other every day and ask, "What ya doing?", but it sounds like "Witcha Doin'". I thought of this card, because of all the cute cards I see on blogs that play on words. I don't have many of those stamp sets and now have them on my wish list. Connie and I talk about these cards all the time and I told her I would make one, so here it is. I am pretty proud of this one, because I showed my husband and he was surprised I thought of it on my own. He thinks I cardlift everything I guess. When he makes a comment besides that is nice, I know I have done something better than usual. I keep showing him my creations and he keeps saying, "That's nice". I guess it is the same thing when he shows me a guitar or amp and I say, "That's nice"....LOL!

By the way, I will be heading to Okoboji this weekend, because my hubby is in a band and they play up there. We are not taking the kids, so it will be a mini-vacation for us. I am going to try to have something for you each day. I will have to look through my archives and come up with something, since I don't have time to create more than one project a day lately. I think I will choose some past layouts that are my favorites, since I am supposed to be scrapping more.

Now, back to the card. I used the some of the same paper I used on the BOO card I posted earlier this week. In addition, I used Halloween Night (retired) and SANS small caps stamp sets. I kept struggling with what to do with the ribbon on this card. I had three different ribbons tied around the bottom and just didn't like it. Then, POW, I thought of putting the ribbon on like tags. I see this on other people's artwork and love it, so why not do it myself. I like how that turned out. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby. I got a ribbon box and all different types of ribbon for 1/2 price. This is awesome for a ribbon nut like me. I had to put the saying "Witcha Doin'" together using SANS Small Caps. Boy, are those little letters. I would love to find this saying on a stamp set already, but I worked around that. I guess that is what is nice about letter stamp sets. You can say anything you want. It just takes more time to create.

So I will surprise my sister with this card some time and I am making another one with the same saying. You should see that tomorrow, if I get time to stamp.



I got tagged again by Jill Hilliard as a Rockin' Girl Blogger. I found a different image this time. I like blog tagging, because I have found some great blogs to subscribe to and get even more inspiration from every day. You need to check out Jill's blog. It is great! I love the Bella with the guitar. Of course, I would since I am surrounded by guitars at home. I am going to tag five new blogs I have subscribed to lately. Here they are:

Kat (Doodles and Dragonflies)
Linda (Stamping in the Moonlight)
Colleen (Distinctive Touches)
Michelle (Twisted Chick Creations)
Pink Lemonade

All of these are great Rockin' Blogs to check out full of creativity and inspiration!

Happy Stamping!

What a great card. I will have to make one like it for my kids. I hope I can find paper that is as bright as you used. I am always asking my kids whatcha doing, so the sentiment will be perfect.
