Typing for my challenges

Hi Crafty Pals,

I got out one of my favourite sets today to use in my challenge entries. I really like Tap Tap Tap for thank you notes and saying hi.

I checked out a few challenges this week and was immediately drawn to the inspiration challenge from Stampin’Royalty SR#316 as the images sang Pool Party to me (one of my go to colours), but I came a bit unstuck with the gold as I don’t have any foil sheets or doilies yet so opted for embossing and the gold sequin trim.

I also really liked the sketch challenge over at TGIF Challenges #TGIFC42 so paired the two challenges together and came up with

Tap Tap Tap challenge card

I rotated the TGIF Challenge sketch (see below) to a portrait orientation and added the bow as I felt the typewriter wasn’t quite big enough. I’m also amazed that I willingly cut it out – I try to avoid fussy cutting.

I just wanted to wish all my Canadian friends in Ontario “Happy Family Day” and with weather like we have had over the last few days crafting was a far better option than venturing out into the -37 C (with the wind chill) we had on Saturday brrrr.
