Hello and Happy Monday!

I made three of these cards and used them to invite some of my close friends to join me and see "Eat, Pray, Love" this week. I can't wait to see the movie because I love Julia Roberts and I listened to the audio book and loved the story.

I had this really cool paper for a while now and I am glad I finally used it. I used my Stampin Up punch to make the small flower, and the brad is from my stash. It was great because it didn't cover too much of the cool paper.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hpe you have a GREAT day!

Flower card

Hello! It has been a very busy week. We had some Dr. appointments and tests just about every day this week. My BFF came over on Wednesday and we made some cards in my studio and listened to some great oldies. I finished listening to the audio book of Eat, Pray, Love and can't wait to see the movie. (I love Julia Roberts movies!)

I used my new rubber stamp from Impress Rubber Stamps called 8 petal flower w/ center dot. I stamped it in two colors and drew a stem. I love how it turned out! My daughter Dawn really liked it, and has requested a set of six for Christmas. The paper and other supplies were just things I had on hand, and I used a Fiskars punch on the bottom of the white card stock.

I hope you have a GREAT day. Thanks for stopping by today!

New Embossing Folder

Hello! I recently purchased the new Stampin' Up embossing folder called Square Lattice. I used it on this card and I love the way it looks like cloth. I saw it used on a few other cards with darker card stock and they looked fabulous too. The image and sentiment I used are from the SU Level One Hostess set called "Because I Care". I stamped the image in Rose Red on Whisper White card stock and colored the stem in Old Olive. I also sponged the edges with Rose Red. I plan to use this folder a lot more in the future.

I hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!
