Pin It


Have a Seat: happy day

Well pooh! I missed the Embellish Challenge with Ric Rac deadline! I struggled with these colors off and on for a week now, even made one card I dismissed as not even photo-worthy (it's SO fussy!), and then managed to whip this up in 10 minutes earlier this evening (the yarn flower was already made!). But then I was heading off to a shoebox swap with friends, so I took a quick picture, thinking I'd upload it when I got home. Too late! ha! I'm blaming it on the margaritas and chocolate martinis...apparently they slow down a shoebox swap! *wink*

Oh well, c'est la vie! I had this ribbon that I bought back while on vacation back in Missouri at Wal-Mart...could the colors be any more perfect for this challenge?! I stamped the chairs from Have a Seat randomly (and quickly, as you can tell, doh!) in Early Espressso on an office tag. Then I threw in a little Peach Parfait cardstock and printed pattern paper. It's a fun new In Color, I can't think of any peach colors SU has had before.

Okay, toodles for now! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Stamps: Have a Seat, Fabulous Phrases.
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Peach Parfait, Peach Parfait Print Patterns paper.
Ink: Early Espresso.
Accessories: office tag, PTI wool felt & ric rac die, Wal-Mart ribbon (Offray?), misc. yarn, dimensionals.

Beautiful card - too bad it was late for the challenge. (I also tried to make a card in those colors, but the pieces still lay here on my desk - not glued together :P)

Those MO WM are surprising, huh? Actually I found some cute stuff in MS. I just never associated WM with cute ya know :P

Love the card, esp. the flower! I still have only made a few flowers and want to do a few different variety more.

I'd blame it on the drinks too. YUM! Makes me want a margarita!!!
