INKspired Artists Blog Hop #9

Hi Again!
It's been a while!
Welcome back hoppers! If you have hopped in from Janelle's blog you are in the right place!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year!
I feel I still have a Christmas hangover :)

Leading up to Christmas we had (and still have) major renovations going on so we have had a lot of sleepless nights painting walls and ceilings etc so I missed the last hop... The mad rush to get everything ready was due to us hosting Christmas celebrations at our house! Also we had to accommodate a full house with my sister and her family visiting from Townsville and friends from NZ here to enjoy the Sydney sunshine and to tinker on cars.
So I was going to miss this hop too as we are still playing host and my new craft room (instead of being completed) has turned into a storage room of paint, building materials and tools till we get back into it.
Current craft room state :(
But... I couldn't miss out again so it was Lou Lou to the rescue and I got to raid her craft room YAY!!

This is hop #9!!

Sitting in Lou Lou's craft room I couldn't think of a card to make :( My mind was blank... I didn't know what kind of card to make?!? I missed out on making a card for my dear hubby's birthday the other day and I really wanted to make up for it... All my handmade stamps are packed away so my Kombi stamps were out of action 
AAAAHHHHHHH what to do?!?
I started out by picking out the Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Bermuda Bay and this was the start of my colour base for the card. I spied out the new happy heart textured embossing folder which I HAD to use too!!

The Just sayin' stamp set was mixed up a bit as I used two stamps... the 'love ya' stamp is in an oval bubble but I wanted to use the rectangular bubble framelit instead (I had to make it difficult)

The last thing I added was the buttons... It was a should I or shouldn't I moment... Decisions?? Decisions?!? Executive decision was made by Lou Lou and three were added :)

It's not a very masculine card that I would normally make him but it shows how much I love him.

I hope you love my card! I am so happy I joined in again! I will be even happier when I have a craft room too where I can de-stress more!!

Next up is the fabulous Lisa Eaton I hope you enjoy the latest hop and see you all again next time!!

  3. Kabrina, great card, bet you and lou had a great time laughing and crafting. I understand some of your problem, I pulled all my craft out to paint and put it in the lounge room, hall, 3rd bedroom and kitchen. My husband ask how long will this be here? mind you he only had a narrow walkway to his chair. I told him 12

    thanks for playing a long.
