Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous Memorial Day weekend. I am, but a paid holiday on Monday will put anyone in a good mood right? Well yes, but especially me, because Monday is also my Brithday! (paid day off is a pretty awesome B-day present) Hehe! Anyway, I hope you all have some fun weekend plans going on. Today Hubby and I went out and got some plants to plant outside our condo. We also found a super cute red electric grill. We can't have a regular grill in our complex so we were super excited to find an electric one we liked and we are really looking forward to cooking on it this summer. :)
Before I share my card I wanted to answer a couple questions from some previous posts. Many of you asked how I adhered the vellum clouds I created on the Whale Grad Card and the Bon Voyage card (which can be found here and here). I used the Vellum Adhesive Runner made by Thermoweb. I think it works pretty well when you are unable to cover up your adhesive. I also told you all I used two Lawn Fawn stamp sets on my Bon Voyage card (which can be found here). If you guessed Smitty's as the second stamp set then you were right! I used the brackets in Smitty's to make the squiggly birds off in the distance. I thought it needed just a little small something else and then I had that "ah ha" moment! I love those, anyway, on to the cards!
I had lots of fun playing along with CAS-ual Fridays last week so I just had to play along again. This week's theme is Graduation. I wanted to make a colorful card and remembered a card Britta made awhile back. I liked her method of incorporating all those colors using only ink pads. You can check out her card here. And here is mine.
I also wanted to share a quick little love note I made for my hubby, Matt. I love the new Admit One set from Lawn Fawn! Matt and I love the fair, we drive to the State fair every year for a little anniversary get away, although he does not like the ferris wheel.
