chock full of eye candy...

Happy Wednesday...I have tons to share with you today so let's get started!

I haven't played over at Design Dollies for awhile and loved their recent sketch:


I've been wanting to scrap the pic of my oh-so-gorgeous ring that Darin picked out for me:)  The papers are Echo Park, Life is Good...I based the colors around the green flower frog:)


Each strip of paper has been stitched with pink thread...the doily is compliment of Yvonne!


Next up is Card Patterns #84:


This started off as a birthday card but I've decided that it'll actually go to Darin's niece for her wedding card...I've said it before, and I'll say it again and again...I'm smitten by MME's Lost and Found line!

You can't really tell but the 'live, love & enjoy life' is a shaped multi-layer diecut sticker with glitter...gorgeous stuff...and yes, that ribbon is glittery....I stitched all around the brocade panel....

Next up is a Torendi project!


I picked up this patterned tape at the Torendi shop and cut it into a banner!


Each banner panel is separated with a black bling.  I stamped the Impress 'Happy Birthday' sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink...everything is nestled onto a Fabriano notecard.  This has already gone postal to a young man that will be turning 16 today...I knew him when he was practically a baby....he and my kids all went to the same daycare in Seattle...they are the one family I've kept up with and we're great friends...I have a tough time making masculine cards but think that this fits the bill...you should see all the girlie cards I'm always sending Darin:)

Okay, thanks so much for stoppin' by!
