Dad You Light Up My Life...

Hello Friends~

{So happy to note that this card was the Winner at My Creative Time Designer Challenge on 10/9/14...Thank you so much for the honors}

I know I have not been around much. I did pop into my craft room quickly to make a card using some products from My Creative Time using their latest Designer Challenge as my inspiration. 

 I started with a green card base which I attached a piece of gray cardstock that has been stamped with stick candy ink using the Stripey Background Stamp Set.  At the top of the card, I took some Brown Hemp Cord and wrapped it around the card front and tied off in a knot. My main focal point was created using My Creative Time Lost At Sea stamp set and coordinating dies. The Trio Stitched Banner Dies was used for the sentiment.
As mentioned I am participating in the "Photo Inspiration" challenge! at My Creative Time
Challenge details:
Is to use this photo as your inspiration by using the photo OR the color combo OR BOTH! I chose to use the colors.

I am also sharing over at Little Scrap Pieces: Show it off Saturday, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Scrapbook Blessings Club - Anything Goes, Craftin' Desert Divas - Anything Goes, D.L. Art - September Linky Party - Anything Goes, V's Sweet Idea Blog - Circle and Dots. {Thanks Karen for letting me know}, Sister Act - Anything Goes

One of my main reason for not being around as much is the start of school, and taking this guy to his practices and games! We are off and running at a pretty high pace, but I don't think any of us would have it any other way. You can't get this time back! 

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a FANTASTIC Friday!
