polka thank you.



Hello and Happy Father's Day Sunday!

The weekend always seems to fly by, why won't it just s-l-o-w--d-o-w-n?

Here's a quick card I made this morning, since I'm blogging live...something I rarely do these days...


This card is filled with wood veneers...my current favorite embellies!  I finally broke into my Prima wood pieces and copic'd them for a POP of color.  Ellen Hutson has some in stock and you can get 20% off her shop right now by using code:  dadsday13 
{the code is good through June 17th on in stock merchandise only}


I used Timeless Twine Olive Green...the banner is Jillibean, the paper Dear Lizzy...You probably can't tell but I did distress the polka base with Fresh Ink Provincial.

I was inspired by the current CASE Study:



LOVE her style!

Just a reminder that you have through the end of the month to play along with us at Let's Get Trendy Now! 3.


There's ton of prizes AND fun!
