Cleaning My Desk Up with Cupcake Inspiration Challenge

Happy Monday everyone!!

It has been a week since I have posted. Not that I have been non creative but taking photos has not been my thing as of late. I am trying to use my camera on manual and there has been a huge learning curve. Some of my the photos I am posting today are not perfect but please bear with me.

I have been slowly cleaning up my desk. I have a TON of images I colored in and am trying to actually make cards with them rather then just put them in a box as I usually do.  I created a card to play along with this week's Cupcake Inspiration blog-"Animals."

First I took some Candied Apple Distress Ink and blended it down a piece of white card stock I had die cut using My Favorite Things "Blueprints #13." I then adhered this over a piece Kraft card stock.

The little sheep, the polaroid frame, the hearts and the "i love" part of the sentiment were sitting on my desk, just waiting to be used. I adhered the sheep and the sentiment strips with foam adhesive. I adhered the hearts and die cut a "you" out of a scrap of red card stock I had in my scrap drawer.

I then used a Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle pen colored over all the hearts and the "you" die cut. I completed the card by covering each of these then with Glossy Accents.

That is all for today. I have a ton of other cards to post but am attempting to photograph them again.

I thank you for taking  the time to stop by. Have a fabulous night!!

This is really cute, and yay for cleaning up a bit. I need to do that too---possibly tomorrow, or the next tomorrow after that.

Oh my gosh Nora, this is absolutely darling! I love how the sheep pops against your background and how you played with your sentiment! You did a great job on this sweet card, especially since you were using the bits and bobs on your desk!
