A Ruler Pun (It’s Bad)

You Rule and a RulerSorry for the bad pun on this card — I just couldn’t help myself.  I also couldn’t help using the This and That Epic Day dsp again.  I think I have an addiction issue.  🙂

My daughter went to a masquerade dance at school last month, and we made her mask.  It had to match her dress, of course.  I still had some of the leftover sequins sitting on my desk, and I’ve seen sequins being used in the paper crafting industry lately, so I thought I’d put some on this card to add a little extra bling.  I put little rhinestones in the centers to cover up the holes.

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Phone Booth

thanks in a phone booth

Here’s a sneak peek of a stamp set that will be included in the Sale-a-Bration offerings starting January 22nd.  This set includes three detailed vintage-style images and a sentiment, and I love them all.

When my husband peeked in on me as I was finishing this one up, he told me he “didn’t get it.”  He didn’t understand what the “thanks” ticket, two cent stamp, ruler and phone booth had to do with each other.  Hmmm….  I told him that they were all things that I like — simple as that.  Maybe I won’t be sending this one out in the mail.  🙂

Have a great Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Fall Tulle Flower

I was excited to see that Julia Stainton is featured this month at the CASE Study Challenge Blog.  When I first started card making, she was a blogger that I admired (I still do too!).  I love everything she makes!  She is so talented at not only card making, but at scrapbooking too.  I’ve cased quite a few of her projects over the years and I have been inspired by so many others.  Here is her card for this weeks challenge:

I tried to make a burlap flower like this one a couple of weeks ago, and all I ended up with was a mess — frayed burlap strings everywhere!  I may have to give it another go after seeing this beautiful card.

I used the scalloped tulle ribbon in the Holiday Catalog for my flower.  It is a dream to work with — no frayed edges and it ties beautifully.

Well, enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
