Fancy Pant Hello.




Happy Saturday!

I love it when a card comes together quickly:

disclaimer:  scenery explained at the end of the post.  Don't you love that awesome Anthro vase from my super fabulous boy?

I've been having so much fun with my Fancy Pants Collection that I picked up from Butterfly Reflections Ink!  It seriously makes it easy smeasy to whip up a card!

The hello die is by Technique Tuesday that I picked up at a Craft Warehouse (actually the one that thee Teri Anderson shops at!).


Aren't the colors in this collection so fantastic?

I'm playing along with the sketch challenge over at




So, I should probably explain my change of photography scenery, eh?  

One of my Design Teams wanted different types of photogs, non photo tent, so I moved downstairs into the living room.  My boy wanted me to state the disclaimer that when I do these particular location shots, it is on an heirloom piece.  It is a Japanese Tansu.  I'm actually fortunate to have 2 in our household that are both from my father but I'm babysitting one for my brother {pretty sure that there must be some type of common law equation for when it actually becomes mine}.  So anyways, we believe the pieces to be at least 100 years old so although it may look dusty, I assure you it isn't.

  2. Great card, Amy! I would be stuck if I had to take a photo somewhere in my house, I'd have to tidy up a corner, lol! That vase is spectacular! As for the tansu you're babysitting... I think it is yours, unless your brother actually comes by to claim it one day. ;-)
