thinking of you.



Do you notice a trend?

I'm going to try to use my Authentique Summer pad for all my projects this week!

Here's card #2:


Super happy with this wee little card...it's just shy of 4 inches tall.  The 'side bars' are actually washi tape.  Why oh Why do I hoard washi?  There are a gazillion yards on a roll...I love the pop of pattern it gives the card.

I was inspired by the latest Case Study




Seriously, am I the only one that wonders what goes through the minds of crafting powerhouses like Jennifer McGuire?  I'm constantly amazed and inspired by all of her creations.

I used

Neat & Tangled


along with

Neat & Tangled


(I simply ADORE the font!)

Thanks for stoppin' by!
