hello, beautiful...

So I am coming to you live from my couch.  I have a little bit of a health issue at the moment that is making things not so much fun, but hoping to get back to normal very soon.  I thought I would stop in and share a card I made at a girls weekend awhile back.  

This card features the new Simon Says Stamp set called Summer Garden.  I am pretty sure I have raved about it already, so I will rave about it some more.  The font.  It's all about that gorgeous font!


I used the new die called Tall Flowers and put them across the panel that is 4 1/4" x 5".  This makes it as wide as an A2 card but shorter.  Then I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum and attached it by wrapping around the front panel.  I popped the whole panel up on a 4" x 5 1/2" card front.  Kinda different but I like how it changes things up.  At first it was hard to leave this way....with the front panel kinda different...but I think its kinda fun.

Hope all is well where you are!  We are gearing up for the last day of school this week.  CRAZY.  It's going to be a long summer.  That is all I can say about that.

Have a great rest of your weekend!  Hugs!
