enjoy today.




I'm smitten with a bunch of stuff...coffee (of course) + pineapples!  Love them because they are one of those things that make me happy...

paper:  citrus bliss  cardstock:  stampin' up basic black, recollections/110/white, american crafts green glitter  stamps:  reverse confetti pineapples aplenty/all about you  ink:  hero arts shadow ink butter bar, hero hues black  other:  reverse confetti pineapples aplenty + circles 'n scallops confetti cuts, stampin up smokey slate ribbon

I've been wanting to use my Citrus Bliss paper pad and knew I was going to team it up with the Reverse Confetti Pineapples Aplenty.

I use to use a fair amount of ribbon and then I was on back to back twine design teams.  As I was digging through my ribbon basket {really a very sad one since I've gotten rid of most of them}, I came across a spool of this chevron stuff...and BAM...I love it.

all about you

When I saw the latest Retrosketches, I knew what I was going to do!  I love the text idea on the banner...gotta remember that!

Love this bright citrusy card! Although I suppose if it has a pineapple it's not citrusy, it's tropical. ;)

Beautiful papers you've used, really love the grey one for the banner. Can you please tell me who makes the Citrus Bliss papers?? I know what you mean about pineapples, they are such a happy fruit. I saw a pineapple shaped and coloured pillow the other day and was so tempted to buy it!!!
