Love You Mom

Can you believe it's JULY already?? I can't... I'm trying to slow summer down. I need to soak up every minute of it! I'm not a Canadian winter kind of girl, I think I was really meant to live somewhere like Florida, or Hawaii. Someday. :)

So this was another of the cards I made for a friend of mine (one of 31). Actually, this was the LAST of 31 cards and I think I was pretty burnt out by the time I reached this one. I'm definitely not happy with it, but thought maybe someone out there would be able to gain some inspiration from it. :)

I think I would have been a lot happier with it if the tag had actually  matched the pink in the rest of the card... I don't even think I was seeing straight by this point! LOL 

I was trying to show the dimension of the card in this pic... The teapot, cup, and sentiment were all popped up using foam stickers. 

Here is what I used to make this card...
- J'adore graphics from Lettering Delights
- scalloped frame from the Silhouette store
- DCWV paper - The Carnival Stack
- Our Mothers stamp set from Pink By Design
- Recollections pearls
- glossy accents
- white gelly roll pen
- Colorbox fluid chalk ink

And that's all!! Make sure you stop back again tomorrow - I have post scheduled all week long!! :)

Candace said...

we're going to DisneyWorld in 2013 too! :) We own a vacation rental 10 minutes away from Disney that we like to visit often to get away from the cold weather!! :) PS - let me know if you'd like me to send you any info on our home, it's cheaper than a hotel and so much more room! :)
