Hello Friend Hedgehog - AHSC 578

Hello Hello! I am back with another stash-busting card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge! I am a bit late to the game with this adorable hedgehog star, he was the April stamp of the month. For the paper, I used a long retired cardstock in Grape and the grid paper is from one of the retired mix-ins. The stamped image was coloured in with the Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers.

Chelsea Gardens Note Card - AHSC 576

Hello, Happy Monday! I am back again with another entry for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge. This week I went deep into my stash to pull out one of my favourites, Chelsea Gardens and created this week's card with some scraps. Outside of the Whisper Twine, all products are from the Chelsea Gardens collection.

Your in my Thoughts - AHSC #576

Wow, we are in May already, January and February seemed so long but since then time seems to be flying and boom, we are in May! I have the first of the May sketches for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for you today. Since the closure of Close to My Heart, I am working on a bit of stash busting so I pulled out the Hillside Cottage papers to pair with my new Flowers of Beauty stamp set from Stampin' Up!

I have decided to take the leap of faith and join Stampin' Up!, they gave us an incredible offer to join and have been so good to us. It still feels so unreal to me, a definite loss but I am excited about what the future with Stampin' Up! looks like. The ink colours I chose are all now retired CTMH colours of Blue Belle, Canary, Espresso, and New England Ivy.

For this week, I made two cards, the first was the Bon Voyage but it just did not feel right to me, I tried to create a different take on the sketch but it was just missing something so I created the Glacier plaid card and I was more fitting of the sketch.
