Good morning! I have a card for you today and it is super easy (but I think that it is super fun…just sayin’) and then at the end of the post I have a funny for you about Milo! This is a quick post as there is not much to say but EASY-PEASY!
I know that you all get this….that DARN TIME THING….it happens to all of us and I was looking at the paper that I have YET to put away (the NEW Pick a Pattern DSP) and I will say, I love it! (you might want to remember that for in the future Blog Candy Trivia) but I admit, I had a tough time “giving up the other side of the paper” – as I love them BOTH!
Stampin’ Up! does have great paper and I know that we all get so excited to see, feel and use the new goodies….well…that tile will be here in a SNAP so until then, let me spoil you with sneak peaks of what is to come!
Clean and simple is the name of todays game as it is the easiest card to make! Just think of the endless DSP’s that you can use and also the cardstock colors that would work!
The green that I used today was Pear Pizzazz, I will admit that I used to forget about this paper but over the past year I have used it more and more. Do you ever do that? Go through waves of using a color over and over and then totally ignoring others 🙄
I started with the thick white cardstock and then put a piece of Pear Pizzazz over the whole front. WHY did I do it that way? Well…..EASY – I really like a solid feeling card in my hand and the weight of our heavy weight card stock is perfect. (Remember, we are getting THICK VERY VANILLA in the new catalog) 😀
Now let’s chat about the Happy Birthday die….is this in your I JUST HAVE TO HAVE LIST? If not, I really think that it needs to be as this is one that will be an endless keeper as we all know having an image like this creates an INSTANT CARD…..just like I I am sharing with you today!
I used SticK It on the back of the paper before I fan it through Mr. Big and here is another WOOT-WOOT for you – in the NEW catalog we are having a double sided product like Stick It…so there you go – another MUST HAVE for your list! (I am sorry, am I your enabler?)
You have to admit, this is easy but it is classic. The only element in this card that is not flat are the embellishments…..they are green dew drops that I purchased from Pretty Pink Posh and I love the fun and modern feel that they give.
Here is a quick shot of the paper – I do adore it that we have 2 sides so if there is a side that you do not care for as much – FLIP IT and use the other BUT….I am stuck as I LOVE BOTH OF THESE….oh well, guess I will just have to buy more paper as after all, I get it at 25% off. I am just thrilled with this collection and I am getting excited to do a product share for the new catalog.
I am “clickin’ my heels” with the simplicity and sheer fun of this card today! This IS a die cut that needs to be on your very 1st order as we all can agree that this is a classic! (If I were you….I would get a piece of paper out and start writing down things that you see before your catalog comes to you next week)
You can see that there are not many products on your picture to PIN but that is a GOOD THING because than you can see that it is super easy to make. Let color make the card – sometime we over think things and if we just say – FUN & DONE…..it can work!
Now to Milo…Mr. PERFECT MILO – right now he has a new name, MILO THE MURDERER. Wednesday evening was picture perfect beautiful on the East Coast and I kept saying to John, look at Milo – he is just looking out the window (he was on the sofa staring out for literally hours) – when it was time for us to go to bed and naturally it was dark then…..John let the dogs out to have a final potty break.
When he came back to our room I said, where is Mr. Perfect? John said, I figured he was back with you….NOPE – so back out John went and then I heard him say (rather loudly) – COME HERE….you have to see this – my dear sweet perfect Milo and a baby bunny that now was his toy in his mouth and I wish that you could have seen his face……it was like he was BEAMING WITH PRIDE and that tail was going a mile a minute.
Naturally we opened the door and said DROP IT…and the great murderer he was he did so and then I exited quickly because I just do not do well with situations like this…..then I could hear John mumbling and mumbling and when he finally came back he said, well YOUR PERFECT DOG….not only took out 1 bunny….he brought the family up!
Milo usually sleeps with us….but not this night, John put him in a kennel and said – YOU SLEEP IN A CELL TONIGHT and think about what you did….and the best thing was…on Thursday morning when we woke up John said, YOUR SENTENCE IS NOT UP and YOU HAVE BEEN DENIED BAIL….. 😀
All is good now….he is back to being Mr. Perfect and that makes me happy. Things like this happen in the Spring….and trust me, it is not the first and not the last that my fur babies will bring me their trophies! The above picture was him the “day after the kill” as he was so tired from being in jail all night, he much prefers our bed!
I hope to see you back tomorrow…as I am going to play with another “newbie” – It is FUN to have new toys and I admit change is hard and also change sometimes makes us step out of the box…..I like stepping out of the box…how about YOU!??!
Have a great dat!
