Time for Dinner!


This week’s cue word challenge over at CASology has me drooling a bit.  Call me crazy, but the word “bell” makes me think of dinner!  You know!  The dinner bell?!  I happened to have just the right stamp set for such a harebrained idea too!

Stamps:  Mama Elephant

I stamped the plate and utensils first and then added the sentiment.  The three tiny hearts were added for balance after I noticed I hadn’t quite stamped the fork in line with the spoon!  I don’t like wasting anymore stamping supplies than I have to, so usually try to save a project somehow before allowing it to drift into the wastebasket!  I added a little Crystal Effects to give the hearts some shine, popped up the framed main panel and called it good!

Be sure and visit the blogs of the rest of the design team as well as our guest designer as I think you’ll find some great inspiration to create your very own bell inspired card!

 Jen – taking a break
(you’re here!)
Don’t forget to link up your creation over at the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CST)!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    I love how your mind works, Melissa! And am I ever glad you fixed that up ~ I HATE it when the fork doesn't perfectly line up with the spoon!! LOL! Hugs, Darnell

    Melissa, I'd call it GREAT! So clever, what a fun take on the cue. Love the added hearts, a great balancing effect!

    Brilliant take on the cue, Melissa! I totally got the dinner bell thing. 🙂 And I'd never have noticed the fork if you hadn't said anything!
