Raise the Bar Challenge #40

Get a hobby!! No.. that's not a command.. lol. That's the challenge this week at Raise the Bar, any card showing an activity. It could be hiking, golfing, sewing, shopping ....oohh... I see some light bulbs going off ; )
This adorable image from Sassy Studios is stamping. I think I had as much fun making the little tiny card she is holding in her hand, if not more, than I had making the whole card. She decided to distress her little card (yes.. I actually distressed the edges of that lil' tiny card!!), stamped a swirl bg and she even pulled out her Martha Stewart butterfly punch. All while wearing her apron and not making a mess anywhere. Yea.. right! If you could see what I look like when I am hanging out in my craftroom!! Sweats, T-shirts, no make-up, hair in a ponytail....I LOVE IT!!
Here's a close up:
I put a pop dot on the inside of the card to hold it somewhat closed. Otherwise it kept wanting to swing open much more. It worked like a charm!
Here's the rest of the details:
Sentiment: Hero Arts "Thinking of You Images"
Papers: The Paper Studio, Bazzill
Ribbon: Stash
Accessories: Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Stardust Stickles, EK Success Circle Punch, Circle Nestie
Ink: Tim Holtz "Broken China" Distress Ink (on the little card)
Skin: E00, E000, E02 and R02
Lips: R81, R83
Eyes: B00
Clothes: R81, R83, R85, B00

So come on.. grab a stamp or digi and head on over and join the fun at Raise the Bar!
