so happy for you...

Happy Saturday!

I typically have a Paper Made Bakery post, but my bloggie friend Glenda is up on the PMB blog today...make sure you go check her project out!

Yesterday morning I struggled to design a going away card for my boss.  I've really enjoyed working with her, she has thee best perspective on things, nothing seems to upset her...she's laid back and easy going.  I'm super going to miss her, more than she probably knows but I'm also really happy for her new venture.

She's an orange girl, which is fab since I love to design with orange:


You probably can't tell from the photo, but the fishtail banner has been stitched down with gold metallic thread.  

I'm still working on the  Basic Grey Hey You paper pad.   The burlap flower is Little Yellow Bicycle.  


The sentiment is by WPlus9, Strictly Sentiments 2.  Such a fun font, dontcha think?

I'm playing along with the gals over at



Cream
Melon
Cantaloupe

Such a fun color combo...my melon color is the button on the burlap bloom.

Lotsa stuff going on on this side of the world today:
