Hi my friends and Blog readers! We just returned home after a trip to Salt Lake City to watch various activities of our Grandchildren. It was a very busy, but fun filled week. Although there was much to be happy about, there is just 1 happening that I am not at all happy about. My eye glasses fell out of the case onto a cememnt driveway. Unfortunately, I have 2 issues – scratched lenses and glasses that fold in half – but not where they are suppose to fold! I was wearing my prescription sunglasses when the accident happened.
Now, I know that you are wondering what this has to do with you. Well, I knew that I wanted to create a card for my blog today and I had to do it with my broken and scratched glasses. So, I am asking for your kindness today when you view my card!
Obviously, I needed a fairly simple card because my glasses kept slipping off my nose. Can you picture me holding my glasses with one hand and creating my card with the other hand…. Soomehow, this sentiment from Feels Good just seemed to fit my situation!
One of my favorite Designer Paper Packs from the Celebrate Everyday Mini Catalog is the Retro Fresh Pack. It is only available until June 1, so I definitely wanted to use it again. And, it has the cutest matching Washi Tape.
Card Facts – Several banners were cut from 2 patterns of the Retro Fresh dsp. In addition, 2 banners were created from the Retro Fresh Washi Tape
The sentiment from Feels Good was inked in Coastal Cabana.
Color the smallest rhinestones with the soon to be released Blendabilities Alcohol Markers. I used both the Coastal Cabana & the Pumpkin Pie markers.
Normally, this would be a quick and easy card but I can tell you that the scene at my house probably would have made an entertaining video!
Just a reminder that time is running out to fill those wishlists from the Celebrate the Everyday Mini Catalog. This catalog ends on June 1, 2014.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Bet you can guess where I will be going today…….
