Vibrant Thanks!

...hope you're having a great week so far and the weekend is right around the corner!

I'm actually going with my husband to see Demetri Martin on Saturday and I'm SOO excited. If you've never heard of him, you're missing out!! He's a stand-up comedian and is hilariously funny. You should check out his stuff on youtube or on Comedy Central.

My husband and I are big concert/entertainment junkies...but this is our first comedian that we've seen do stand up in a big arena (tampa bay performing arts center)...we've seen Jeff Dunham and a few other comics, but only in a small venue at one of our local comedy theaters.

I just can't wait, is it Saturday yet!?

So anyway, the card :)

I thought I would do something really colorful for a friend of mine's mom. I was able to spend the day getting a manicure, shopping and lunch with both of them. It was so much fun...I can't wait for her mom to visit again (and I'm going to bring my mom, they would get along so well!!)

Her mom was so adorable and I just thought I would make her a sweet little card to let her know that I appreciated spending the time with her!

Hugs and Love,


the good stuff:
paper: stampin up (su) rich razzleberry;
papertry ink (pti) rustic white, hawaiian shores and simply chartreuse
misc: corner chomper; sizzix - embosslits beautiful wings;
k&company acetate and paper die cuts;

Thank You Martha Stewart

I'm now obsessed with doilies.

I've been using them everywhere: here, here and here. Not to mention all the cards I still need to post.


But it makes for a heck of cute card, doesn't it?

This is for a girl at work...she's adorable and just had her 2nd baby girl. And for months, I never even knew she was preggo. She's TINY.

Hopefully if/when I decide to have kids, I'll look like she did.

Besides doilies, I wanted to use my sizzix pocket die with FELT. I love hot pink, and hot pink felt? HELLO!

I just like that I could take the doily/tag out and it's like a card of its own :)

Ok, now I'm off. My company's gym opened up last week and I'm all out of excuses for not working out....maybe it's "too convenient". Is that a plausible excuse? no? darn.

Have a fabulous Tuesday!

the good stuff:
paper: papertrey ink (pti) - rustic white;
american crafts - craft fair
misc: martha stewart tag doily; doily and ribbon from michaels; prima flower; floss from joanns; kaiser crystals
stamps: papertrey (pti) - bitty baby blessings;
close to my heart (ctmh) - tags
ink: papertrey (pti) - raspberry fizz; brillance - yellow
die cut: sizzix pocket
