Hemingway...Love it!

I used the Hemingway collection to make this card. I love this paper, it is so versatile and beautiful. I wanted to tone down the paper just a little, so I lightly sanded all the pieces. The Tiger Face stamp is stamped onto the designer paper that I also sanded. I sanded the edges a little more for contrast. This tiger stamp is retiring and is on sale for just $5.96. It's really sad, I love this stamp and have used it many times. It is such a perfect size.

Supplies-All supplies from The Angel Company
Stamp-Tiger Face
Ink-Palette Burnt Umber
Paper-Hemingway Soar with it collection, Hemingway cardstock
Accessories-Hemingway hardware, Hemingway ribbon, antique triangle loops

I am been very blessed to meet some very sweet people since I have started blogging and I have received awards from two of them. I feel so honored every time I receive an award, I truly do. It makes me feel really special!

I received this award from Becky. Becky's blog is the very inspirational A Diamond in the Rough. Thank you so much Becky. I received this award from Paula of Crop Notes and Crafts. Paula makes amazing baskets. I think that would be such a cool craft to learn. I love baskets and their functional, can't beat that. Thank you Paula for the award. Ok, so I know I am supposed to pass this on to other blogs, but I am just going to point you to my sidebar to the Designing D.I.V.A.S. Lately I have not had much time to go blog hopping and have pretty much just visited the blogs in this amazing group. They are all so fantastic. If you haven't checked out these blogs yet, please check my sidebar and visit the blogs of these very creative women. They are all awesome. I hope to come back and update this post to pass these on when I have a little bit more time.

Have a blessed day!
