Fun With Dress Forms

Hi Stampers!

Hope you had a great day! We got some great news from the Doctor today! After Grandma's breast cancer surgery they sent the tissue and the cyst that they removed from her cheek in for biopsy and they found no cancer in her breast or the cyst! YAY!! The doctor said that Grandma was weak and sleepy just from the surgery and the healing process and that she should continue to gain strength each day so that was encouraging news.

I have to say that I appreciate all the support, encouraging words and prayers for our family as we go through this difficult time. It really means so much to us and we can't thank you enough!

Today is my Design Team day for The Cutting Cafe and I know this post is super late so I apologize for that! This week we could choose to use the Apple Box Set, Birthday Fun Printable Stamp Set or the Fun With Dress Forms Template and Printable Stamp Set - which is the one I chose.

Here is the first card that I made...

With as crazy as my schedule has been I haven't had much time to make it to my stamp room so I tried a clean and simple design for my card today. Clean and Simple is tough for me - LOL - but I love how this turned out. I paired some of my favorite vintage papers from the Cosmo Cricket Odds and Ends paper pack  with the Small Dress form template from the Fun With Dress Forms set. The sentiment is one that also somes with this file. I think it turned out pretty cute and it makes a wonderful card that comes together pretty quick for those times that you would need something in a hurry.

After I got this one done and sent to Regina...I realized that OOPS! The other part of our challenge was to focus on the color GREEN! So I created a second card just like my first one but with a green color scheme :) I used the same paper pack to keep the same vintage like feel.

Here is my second card:

I chose a different sentiment than the first card however it is still one that comes in the Fun with Dress Forms set.

Here is a look at my two cards side by side...

I really love this file and will be using it again for sure!

Now I know that the Design team post is live since I am getting this posted late so be sure to check over on The Cutting Cafe Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team did!
