and I quote...



Several incredible bloggers out there have suggested using supplies in more ways than just the most straight-forward. That made sense to me, and so I thought, hmmmm....and then PING.....well, the ping came after seeing the sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch. So much lovely white space surrounding the focal point. And my goofy idea came to light. I used one set of quotation marks. Wha....t?!? Well in a flash, you can see exactly what I mean. First though, take a look at this yummy sketch:



and my simple take:  


I like it. I made it with a masked off HA stamp and Jenni Bowlin for Ranger Ink ink Orange and white striped Washi tape, and quotation marks cut with my Cricut using MME dp. That's it. Once again, Happy Valentine's Day and do a little happy dance!

Wow, Bev ... there's no stopping you!! What a brilliant 'ping' idea with the quotation marks ... love the strong bright colours! Oh, and the white white space (naturally!) Anita :)

WOWZERS....TOTALLY AWESOME!

If this "ping process" was responsible for making you think to put polka dotted quotation marks together with yellow striped washi tape in such a fabulous cluster like this...then I would like some please!

Perfectly executed. Sweet!

So jealous of your pings ;) This card is phenomenal. So much gorgous white space and then bold colors and patterns. Fun, fun, fun. Hope you're easing into the retirement thing!
