Did you HOP yet? Teresa made a card, too

Happy Monday to all of my fine Blends.

I am running a bit behind due to the fun celebration and will be posting the weekly Making It To The Mailbox Monday {MITTMM} episode later today.

I am happy to post a couple of cards today after a fun-filled weekend.  Teresa visited again and OF COURSE we did some crafting.  I think I need to set up a guest room so we can have these "crafty retreats" ALL the time.  LOL!!  I am sharing her card with all of you and letting you know that each time we talk, I share the comments you send regarding her creations, and she appreciates each and every one of you!!!!

Teresa was really inspired to play with the current challenge theme at Create Me Pink - #6 - Color Splash (Black, White and a splash of color).  We spilled all of my stamps out onto the floor and got a few Cricut cartridges out to get started.  She had a general idea at first, but was pleasantly surprised that her creation took a completely different path to the finish line. 
She started with a basic white texture card stock and randomly stamped the swirl image (by inque boutique) using Ranger Archival Black ink.  She wanted the image to look washed out and distressed so I handed her some sandpaper and let her "have at it".  She then decided to use the Serenade cartridge to cut the tree, clouds, and birds.  She wanted the birds to meet with a heart in the center, so she cut that from Cricut Classic Font cartridge.  The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper - Love-a-licious set. and stamped using VersaMagic in cloud white.

I will enter her  card into the following challenges (GOOD LUCK TERESA)!!!
