Happy Monday, everyone!
I spent a blissful afternoon in the Studio yesterday. I thumbed through magazines and found all the card inspirations I’ll need for every Monday through 2012! And made several of them, besides. I should have taken time last night to get today’s post together but until my husband called around 9:30 last night, I had no clue what time it was and suddenly very tired. I love how I can get lost in my creative world.
Today’s card was inspired by Cynthia Hillstrom’s card, You’re a Dear Friend, featured in the May/ June 2007 issue of RubberStamper Magazine (now under Crafts n Things). Cynthia used mostly Close to My Heart products. Her base was a mottled blending of cherub pink, baby pink, shell pink and lavender. She used a varigated pink/ white checked ribbon and 3 pink heart brads.
I liked the layout just as it is. I don’t do 4x9 cards very often and this one just spoke to me. To fill the long slender white mat, I instantly thought of SU- Nice n Narrow stamp set. This particular set has the flower, baby carriage and a Christmas tree. I need a card for my MO monthly stamp loop and thought the flower and a bright yellow would bring a Happy Hello to my recipient this month.
I used SU Daffodil Yellow, misc. yellow grograin ribbon and LePlume markers. The sentiment is from SU Lots of Thoughts.
