A crop party is a modern quilting bee. A group of friends gather to have girl friend time, sharing joys and sorrows while preserving memories and creating a special keepsake.

My Newest Stamp Set With Heart

I have quite a few religious friends who would be comforted by the sentiments in Close to My Heart's new "Look to the Light" set and I know I will get a lot of use out of it.  Circumstances are such that I need a card in a hurry, so I turned to this layout from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

The symbolism of the navigation charts and anchors along with the lack of embellishments keeps the focus on the sentiment.  I plan to enter this in Heart 2 Heart's "Sentiment-ally Yours" challenge.  Thank you for stopping by!  Now please visit Heart 2 Heart and Atlantic Hearts to see what the others have created.  Until next time, Hansi

Materials, all from Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:
Paper:  Tommy, White Daisy cardstock
Ink:  Outdoor Denim
Stamp:  Look to the Light

  5. I really like how you finished off this card. I always find those cards that you need in tough circumstances are always the most difficult to make aswell. Great card, thanks for playing along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

  6. Love your card with the Tommy papers and how you made the sentiment a focal point of the card. Thanks for playing along with the Sentiment-ally Yours challenge at Heart 2 Heart. I love your artwork!
