Oh boy, I actually made a card! :) I was so inspired by my wonderful and talented friend, Lorie, to play along with my first Peachy Keen Card Challenge and this is what I was able to come up with. I sadly do not own any PK stamps (yet!!) but was wowed and thrilled to visit the blog and was dazzled by all the lovely things to see there!
Since the challenge was to use 1. a pumpkin 2. purple somewhere on the card and 3. a zig-zag, I did my best to play along using the only pumpkin stamp I could find and am thrilled that I had this one. I grew up with a brother 1.5 years older than me that I just recently had the blessing of seeing recently -- he lives so very far away now and it's been a long 4 years since we've seen each other. When we were smaller, these were the exact moments I remember when we were growing up - him pulling me along in a little red wagon. I tried my best to color it and hoped my colorless blender would make the sky look more "water colored" but I'm not so sure the technique worked ..... I have lots to learn, lol! But I sure had so much fun with this card! I am hoping this will inspire me to work on the coordinating scrappages before THIS Halloween, tee hee!
I paired the purple with some K & Co Halloween paper, textured dsp for "grass", added some purple ric-rac and the wee pumpkin is placed with 3-d for added effect. This card just made me smile all over when it was done - the memories live strong, and that's what crafting and creating is all about! TFS and blessings!
