i missed you

May 14, 2013

Happy Tuesday, friends!!  I hope you've had a great day so far.  I was up bright & early to take Josh to the airport for a meeting in Seattle.  He'll get home about midnight tonight....nothing like a quick little jaunt across a couple states, huh?  Ha!  I ran some errands today, and created some cards for the next few days. 

One of those cards happens to be this one!  I used up some Elle's Studio "You and Me" goodies, and combined them with some Lawn Fawn stamps that I either haven't used before, or haven't used in a long time!  And I couldn't finish the card without a few sequins from the Studio Calico "Atlantic" collection.  Here is what I created!
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
2. Cut background paper slightly smaller, then adhere.
3. Layer the banner with two tabs to the right side of the card.
4. Wrap twine around the top and tie a double bow.
5. Stamp the convo bubble & sentiment to vellum, cut out and adhere to the right side of the banner.
6. Accent the front with jewels, sequins & a gold arrow to finish.

-Fusion Hypothesis #6 - sketch
-Lawnscapings #57 - bling, shimmer, glitter
-Runway Inspired #35 - photo inspiration

So, that is my card for the day!  Pretty simple, but pretty sweet too...I love all the fun products that Elle's Studio puts out.

I have one little Instagram photo to share with you today...
I took this last night after we came home from running some errands.  The sun was shining brightly through the storm clouds, and it just made everything look so beautiful out! 

I hope that you have a great rest of your night!

Until later,
