HELLO Friday

Hey there! Wow, I can't believe it's Friday and I haven't posted here on the ole blog since Monday. I've been crazy busy this week and there's lots of news, but I'll get to the eye candy first. :)

This is another little card I made when I was at Laurie's.  It's a good thing I made so many cards there because the weeks since I've been back have had little to no stamping time.  I love how this shabby chic card turned out.  I started with a chipboard frame from Laurie's stash and sponged it a little with vintage photo distress ink.  Then I covered the center cutout with some Tim Holtz Lost & Found paper, then a layer of vellum with the sentiment from Feel the Sun embossed in Vintage Photo.  I added a little Fruit Punch stickles around the frame, then added some pink Bella Baubles and the sweet little blossoms with a little Stardust Stickles.  The leaves are a diecut from Laurie's stash and I used the Tim Holtz organic flourishes to add some texture to my layers.  I finished off with some ribbon, a fun little border punch and lots of distressed edges.

Okay, on with the news...

10% off SALE!
Verve, My Favorite Things, and The Cats Pajamas have joined forces to help our awesome design team member, Susan Liles, and her husband, Eric, who is battling an aggressive form of lymphoma.  You get 10% off on some of the best stamps around (if I do say so myself) and our three companies will be sending a portion of our proceeds this weekend to the Liles family.  You can read this post on the Verve Blog for all the mushy stuff about how cool I think Susan is.
