Let me start by saying that I am so sorry my post was not live when I thought it would be.  Seems that there is a difference between a.m. & p.m.  OOPS!

Here's the sketch that the talented Nicole Watt provided for the challenge.


When I first looked at this sketch, I was stymied – 5 little circles…..  However, as I was visiting with my friend, the ideas started to flow.One thing led to another and before I knew it, my card was finished!  Isn't that the best way to create!

My stamp set of choice is once again Guy Greetings.  And, of course, the paper is from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack.  The brick wall seemed like a nice place to hang my hats!

Each hat was stamped separately on Very Vanilla card stock and punched out with a 3/4" Circle Punch.  The edges of the circles are inked with Early Espresso Ink which is also the color ink I used for the sentiment.  The punched circles are then layered on a Cajun Craze Patterned Paper Hexagon courtesy of the Hexagon Punch.  The hexagons edges are also inked with Early Espresso Ink.

The sentiment was banner cut on one side, edges inked  and finished off with 3 Cajun Craze Candy Dots.  If you look at the hats stamp, you will notice that that they are close together so I could not just stamp and punch.  I masked all but one hat with scotch tape, inked the stamp, removed the scotch tape and stamped my single hat.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
