a striped hello...

I want to use PTI's hello die on everything.  Help me.  It just has so many possibilities.  So here is a little negative die + stripe usage....

So instead of coral and gray, I have now moved on to navy and red.  FUN times!  I stamped the stripes across the background and then cut out a cirlce with my creative memories circle cutter.  Yes I still have it.  Yes the blades are still sharp after years of use.  And yes.  I still love that thing.  Then I put the circle on the front of the card and cut the top and bottom off to fit snuggly in the corner.  I ran it though with the hello die washi taped in place and the attached it to my card front with foam tape.  I finished it off with a little enamel dot.  Yes.  I love those too.  I need more.  I just ordered some this weekend with the enabling help of my friend Amy. Thank girl!  :)

I got to see Amy this weekend!  My husband is working in her town so I went up to visit and we got to do a little shopping and a Chipotle lunch!  One day of perfection for sure.  (Minus telling the kids to keep their hands in their pockets after knocking a display of smooches ink on the floor.  Oh my!)

So now I am home with a few minutes of quiet and wanted to share my card with you!  Hope you are having a great weekend!  Thanks for stopping in!
