Tickled Pink Challenge #10 - Off The Scrap Desk


I wanted so badly to play along with Tickled Pink Stamps c
hallenge this week, and I just haven't had time. Well, as I watched the hours tick by today and the deadline for submissions draw closer, I grew more and more determined that I was going to get a card done tonight after I got my son settled for the evening!

We came straight home after I picked him up from day care. Dinner and bath time were done quickly and efficiently. I started prepping while he was playing. Sketch? Check. Image? Check. Papers? Check. Embellishments? Check. As soon as he was in his crib, happily sucking his thumb, I was seated at my desk and working like a mad woman! I have to say that I am quite pleased with the result! Apparently I work well under pressure... THAT must be why I procrastinate all the time! lol

TPS Challenge #11 (I know my title says #10 - Oops, darn autofill!) called for us to use something Off The Scrap Desk. In other words, items not intended for use in card making. I chose a beautiful purple barrette and some pearl topped bobby pins that I found at the dollar store. For my layout I opted for Sketch 107 from Card Patterns.

I can now go to bed feeling fulfilled and accomplished! Haha! I can't wait to see the next challenge that TPS has in store for us... I am loving them!

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone is having a fabulous week! If you like my creation, please take a moment to leave me a comment... I value them immensely!
