You can’t put a price

 I am sure you have heard the saying “You can’t buy love”, well this cute little stamp takes it one step further. I picked this up over the weekend at my LSS. Click on the picture so you can see a larger picture.


 Today’s challenge at 365 Cards was to use a hexagon as the focal shape on your card. Well, please don’t look too close as I cut this shape out free hand. To help straighten it, I purposely chose a busy background paper *wink*. The stamp is by Shirley’s 2 girls, paper and brads by Basic Grey Bittersweet, a hint of copic and Atyou spica pens for color. I choose to use Kraft cardstock to bring out the color in the paper.

My second photo today is for an ATC swap at the Stamp Shack. The theme is Sweet so I used the sundae from MFT What’s the Scoop and sentiment from MFT How Sweet it is.

100_1612 The paper is from Basic Grey Two Scoops collection. I cut a layer of vellum so the paper would seem muted. I colored the image with copics E59, E50, BG10, BG11, and R29. It is hard to see in the photo, but I spread Diamond Glaze on the sundae cup so it would resemble glass. Mini buttons were added to the corners.

Now to just put together the other 8 cards. Hopefully I will finish before the Jay Leno Show. If you watched it last night, what did you think? Was it too much like the Tonight Show?
