Happy Wedding Doily!

Meet...my card :)

I think this begins my new found obsession. Doilies. Yes, these little beauties are so versatile....just look at Dawn McVey and Retrospection blog posts. Just fabulous. Absolutely fabulous. I HAD to go to Michael's this morning to pick up these little babies...Martha Stewart Die Cut Lace Doily Tags. For $3.99 you get 3 different styles (4 of each). Aren't they just delightful? Can't wait to see what else I come up with!

Ok back to the card :)

This is the first card (pretty much ever) that I've tried layering. I stink at layering...I WANT to layer, I just have some inability to do it right. Finally, I think I did it right!

I made this for my coworker friend's brother who is getting married this Sunday. Their colors are fuchsia and yellow...such happy colors! I added a little smoke/black to it for some contrast :) I hope my friend (and the new couple) enjoys my card!!

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think :)
Have a fabulous day!!

Dot Spots: Hope You're Feeling Better!

I have to confess...I totally scraplifted this card :)

Isn't it cute though? I believe I got it straight from the PTI -- Papertrey Ink -- photo gallery.

This stamp set is so cute, I love it. I think for my next card, I'm going to hole punch a few of the dots and raise other dots, that may turn out kinda cool!

I have about 100 bloggers on my Google Reader right now and I am constantly inspired by so many incredible people.

I'd love to know...who's your inspiration??

Beach Wedding Wishes

Hello!! And Happy Mother's Day to everyone :) Hope you all had a fantastic day! I've been really behind on posting my recent cards and thought this would be a nice one to welcome summer!

Our pool is finally clean and at the perfect temperature for some swimming as I did the last couple days...and I even got to lay out...lol I'm trying to get my "tan" back (who am I kidding..the last time I was "tan" was prom). But it was absolutely gorgeous outside.

I love this card :) I think it's so fun...and I finally got to use this awesome material that's actually some European bouquet wrap. Pretty neat, huh?

The detail of the starfish is actually thick embossing powder adhered with a glue pen! It was really tough finding something that looked like real sand, but I found it!

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon :)

All ingredients are from Papertrey Ink (PTI) except twine, bouquet wrap and thick embossing powder.
