Fantastic Friday

It's Friday AND a 3-day weekend for my husband. Life is sweet! I love Friday - it's the only day of the week I don't need to drive my daughter to preschool, or go anywhere for that matter. But, what are we doing today? Yes, we're having lunch out - just a lunch date with my 3 kiddos.

Today I thought I'd try out cracked glass. Why have I never done this before? It's fun (although my desk has embossing powder all over it because I got my heat gun too close to my powder tray and the powder went flying everywhere..) and its such a unique look. I love those techniques that look like you spent forever on, but in real life, they are super easy. So here is my super simple card, but I love it, and it's my last January birthday card. I'm excited to say I'm caught up! woo hoo! Anyway... This card uses Groovy Guava for the base and then I layered Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava, and Purely Pomegrantate under a 2-3/4 x 2-3/4 piece of Very Vanilla. I stamped the Linen background with Creamy Caramel and then sponged the edges. The flower from Doodle This is stamped in Basic Brown and then I used blender pens to paint in the flower. Of course, I had to finish the card off with ribbon - Purely Pomegranate double stitiched grosgrain in this case. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Amazing to Zany.

I hope you have enjoyed my rookie week in the blog world! This has been really fun and I'm happy to be using my stamps and paper instead of hoarding everything. What an adventure! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks again for stopping by!
