A fun color combo...


Just stopping in to share a quick card I turned in for World Card Making day!  I wish I had taken another pic of this card at a different angle!  The 2 smaller squares are popped up on foam tape and that is hard to see here.  I do love this paper though!  It is such a fun color combo and one that is not my usual!  I bough this pack by mistake....can you really do that?  But yes, I did!  The one I wanted was left behind!  Now that I do own this one I definitely love it!

I lightly inked up the Lined IP with white ink....as you have seen me do before...and then ran it through my Big shot.  It is just the most subtle distressing and I love it!  I added some pearls in the inside corners of the squares and a white sentiment onto this Smoky Shadow card base.  I am kinda diggin' this card!  

What are you up to on this Friday night?  I am hanging out with the kiddos...or will be in a minute!  :)  We are gonna watch a movie and eat some popcorn!  I am getting all excited for Sunday to get here!  Going to see Twilight with my friends!  At first, I had NO interest in these books.  I am not a fan of anything vampire or scary, but my friend made me do it!  I read them all last year.  Yes I am admitting that now out loud...to all of you!  I am by NO means a Twilight fanatic, but I really just can't wait to see how they turned this 4th ook into a movie!  Lots of crazy stuff going on in this time around!

Off to watch a cartoon now.  No vampires tonight!  :)

Laurie, that paper is awesome - actually, the whole card is! Have fun at the movie!

Tonight we went for Mexican food and right now I am baking more clay cabochons - new molds arrived today...working up to making some jewelry. :) Gotta get up early for a crafty outing with Jessica. Have a great night!
