What a combination!!!
Yesterday was a bit of a crazy day for me as I had a lot of errands to run and also had to go for a pelvic ultrasound and a mammogram (yes, all in one day!).
A couple days ago, a few of us on SplitCoast Stampers arranged to meet for dessert and coffee - what a perfect reward after a crazy day!
So, last night I had the pleasure of meeting three lovely ladies from the SplitCoast Stampers site - what a blast!!!
We talked, we laughed, we ate WAY too much sugar and ingested enough caffeine to probably keep us up all night stamping - LOL! Good thing I was drinking decaf - YIKES! I think our poor waitress was going a little nuts trying to get rid of us as there was a HUGE lineup at the door and we just weren't leaving! We spent three hours having the BEST time!
I met Karen, Diana and Teresa. Teresa is hosting the swap for which I made this card. I made another card too, but it's a secret for now. There's still time to join by the way...everything is sure to be AMAZING!!!
As we were firming up plans, I decided to create this card to give to my new stamping friends:
I stamped the butterfly from the Great Friend stamp set in Soft Suede by stamping off first and then stamping on Very Vanilla. I matted it on Soft Suede and then again on Sahara Sand. The card base is Sahara Sand and the next layer is Soft Suede. The bottom strip is Very Vanilla on which I stamped the sentiment.
I've seen my other friend Karen use this squishy ribbon treatment before and I just LOVE it, so I decided it would be perfect for this card. Wouldn't you agree? I'm in love with the Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware!
