Country Cottage

I'm back.  I first have to apologize for being away so long.  I actually have been busy crafting but not making cards.  I signed up for a scrapbooking challenge to complete 100 pages in 100 days.  I have 47 pages completed, which finished off one album for me.  YEAH!  I'm still behind since I should be at around 80 by now but  I have the next 14 pages spread out on my table.  I just need to journal and add the embellishment.  The hard thinking and planning part is done.  I won't be posting them however since my pages tend to be more like photo journals than traditional scrapbooking.  

I was burning out though and needed a break.  I just saw a friend who'd pulled out her Thomas Kincaid images and I was inspired.  The image was stamped on vellum with brown Momento.  I then turned the image over and coloured on the wrong side.  The image was then mounted right side up on card stock.  The brown matting for the image was done by tracing and hand cutting around my Nestie.  I really wish they would come up with smaller frames so I wouldn't have to do that.

The sentiment is from Gina K's fanciful tags set.  I stamped it on Very Vanilla and then hand cut it to fit  an old epoxy sticker.  The epoxy had pulled away from the "metal" base so I pulled it right off and cleaned up the residue.  It was too nice to throw away so I thought it was the perfect embellishment for this card.
