Thankful for YOU!


This card is for each of you that stops by my blog and visits me each week. I am so truly appreciative of your friendship and support!!


I love the Live Your Dream set and had a hankering to use it this week. The layout was totally inspired by Jessica's layout that she used on last week's PPS challenge card. I'm sure I'll use it again and again! One of the NYE challenges was to create an easily mailable card - less than 3 layers and no lumpy embellishments.
1. Create standard size top-fold card base from Old Olive.
2. Cut patterned paper to size. Run narrow strip through scallop punch.
3. Color stamp with Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose markers. Overstamp lines in Going Gray. Stamp sentiment in Chocolate Chip. Mount on Chocolate Chip panel.
4. Add stickles to highlight flower centers and to mimic brads. My "brads" aren't very big...it seemed like my stickles were clogged and nothing I did enabled them to really "flow". I gave up and just used a small little bit.
Have a beautiful day girls!!
