...the same Language 40

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, July 14, 2011 @ 9:07 PM | , , ,

Hi there! Soooo happy it is Friday for many reasons! More on that another date and time... ;) I had some "me" time today so I made this card combining some of my favorite paper crafting goodies. I'm not biased - I love so many companies (just ask my DH ;), after all ~ Variety IS the spice of life! Everyone Smiles in the same Language ~ isn't that the truth? Many of us paper crafters don't speak the same language, we are from places around the world and come from different walks of life, but I think it is pretty safe to say we all welcome a warm smile? :)
I inked up the beautiful JustRite Stampers sentiment with PTI Raspberry Fizz ink, framed it with a sweet polka dot frame from Waltzingmouse Stamps then layered on top of a darling doily from My Favorite Things.
I gave a stab at making some tulle flowers. I LOVE flowers as many of you do and I LOVE the convenience of grabbing a pre-made one from my stash but I also find it quite satisfying, rewarding and a bit easier on the crafty budget to create my own. I referred to a tutorial that Betsy Veldman shared quite some time ago on her blog.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with MOJO Monday. For awesome inspiration, be sure to check out the site!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Vintage Circles Small, JustRite Stampers 3 1/4" Smile - Interlocking
Die Templates: Spellbinders, My Favorite Things, PTI
Patterned Paper: The Girls Paperie
