It's been a crazy weekend, frustrating and fun at the same time. Anyway, I found out Friday afternoon that I wouldn't be able to get the house/condo (long story) and I was pretty upset all weekend long. And then, my realtor called me Saturday afternoon to let me know that we have to start all over again :(. Yesterday, I met with him and we saw couple of places that I was interested and place a bid ... again. I'll find out by Wednesday if they accepted the offer and we'll be in contract... again! So, back to square one...again :(
Anyway, for the fun part...I had some time last night to create and I haven't been playing with my Sarah Kay stamps and I thought it would be nice to do the Magnolia vs Stampavie Challenge. I always have a hard time with big/long cards and when I saw the sentiment on this sketch, I thought why not use a huge sentiment also...LOL! The sentiment alone is measured 2" x 3 1/2", but I thought it's just the perfect sentiment for these two.
Main image is from Summer 2008 Sarah Kay Collection, A Kiss for Chloe and was stamped on Whisper White card stock and colored with Stampin' Up re-inkers and matted with Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip card stock. The sentiment Forever is by Heidi Swapp Clear Stamp. The patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye. The card is measured 9 1/2" x 8 1/2" folded in half, I told you its HUGE.
