Salt-n-Pepper :: WCMD

Hey there! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I sure did! I even squeezed in a bit of shopping. I'm still purchasing items for my studio, so I got some additions to my furniture at IKEA. It's coming along and I have not forgotten about sharing how it all turned out with you. I have a few more things to install and want to make sure it's exactly how I want it before the big reveal.

This weekend, I cleaned my studio and discovered many finds! How is it that you can actually go shopping in your own stash? I know, it's really a shame! Anyway, I came across this Cosmo Cricket Early Bird collection and remembered Moxie Fab World's Around the House Challenge that ends today. When I saw the S/P chipboard shakers, I knew I wanted to use them. I even considered the sentiment, "We go together like..." before finding one already in the collection! But, I was glad that I found it because that meant I did not have to word process it or stamp each letter to create that long sentiment! It is a vintage collection (in my opinion), so I inked it up a bit to create an aged effect. Guess what I did not do on this card? STAMP! I couldn't believe it either! :-)

On another note, Paper Crafts started the holiday, World Card Making Day (WCMD), a few years ago. It is coming up Saturday, October 3. If you have plans to include your WCMD activities on your blog, you can link your blog here, like I just did. Also, watch for a list of bloggers listed on the previous link for inspiration and a 25% coupon code to use off your entire purchase in Paper Crafts' online store! How's that for fun?!! You can buy all of your crafty friends something great for a reasonable price before the holiday rush! I have a coupon code for you to use.

This is just way to cute! And how nice to have no stamping, though I have found that sometimes these take me longer because I fuss over them more! But that is probably just me! LOL! Hope you have a great Monday!

So soft, so pretty. It's just so tough to beat Cosmo! Love the velvet ribbon--just adds that texture to seal the deal. Beautiful work.
