hello.




Here's my 2nd card that I made when I had crafty peeps over on Saturday.  I'm always so pleased with myself when I actually, well, craft!


I'm still lovin' the Basic Grey Fresh Cut Collection.  I combine it with a Paper Smooches sentiment from the Chilly Chums set!

The Fresh Cut paper is compliments of Kimberly and the Fresh Cut bloom is compliments of Sherry!

I love how the black ink from the sentiment brings out the black polkas from the center brad on the bloom!


I was inspired by



Super fun one and I'll be keeping this in mind for other cards!

i'm chuckling at your surprise that a crafty playdate resulted in actual CRAFTING... i seriously doubt that i'd get anything done, i'd be too busy chatting and admiring everyone else's supplies and mad skillz, lol! (i'd still like to TRY tho, anyway!) this is a BEAUTY of a card, missus! looking forward to seeing it in the "rockstar" position at RS next saturday!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)
