July's Card Chain Challenge Reveal

 I'm participating in the Card Chain Challenge again.  I just love sending and receiving memorable homemade cards all over the world.

July's challenges are listed below. Choose One - up to you which one.

I chose friendship and I thought that the image I stamped was really all about us crafters who have fun crafting together, yet so far apart.  I had tried coloring this before, but didn't even finish it.  I really had fun with the set this time.  I did have a scary moment though.  I thought I picked up a BG00001 and it wasn't!  It was a gray color and NOT what I wanted as I had everything else colored.  I just took a blending (0) marker and did the best I could.  I think it still works out.  LOL  You can usually fix something - where there's a will, there's a way.
Art Impressions unmounted Crafty Girls set (1st time using this rubber stamp)

What a fun card and coloured beautifully. I can't see where you made the mistake so great save. I am often messing things up at the last knockings, sometimes it makes me want to cry! xx

I love that line of stamps & the crafty gals are perfect for the CCC, Arlene!! LOL - I've done the same thing - chosing the wrong marker - great job making it work!!

Joanne said...

Such a fun card! I do find that nearly any little mistake can be fixed too; sometimes you just have to get creative to cover it up.

I'm glad you finished this one, Arlene, because it's a super card to send to a crafty card chain friend! There is nothing better than friends getting together to make cards, whether in person or virtually. Thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
