I just love when there is a Monday holiday.  The rest of week seems to go by so quickly.  It’s WEDNESDAY ALREADY.  YAY!!!

Lovely Inside & Out

Of all the things in the catalog that I got, my very favorite is the daisy punch.  I also LOVE how the words layer for the set Lovely Inside and Out.  I put those together with the new Leaf Punch and this is what I came up with…nice and easy!

Colorful Seasons

Do pin a lot of ideas on Pinterest?  Do you every MAKE any of the things you pinned?  Well, I do pin a lot…I use them for inspiration but don’t always exactly copy them.  Quite some time ago I pinned a card that had blue and orange leaves.  I LOVED it and wanted to great it.  Except for similar colors and the idea of using leaf images, I really didn’t copy it but really ended up with a FUN card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pumpkin Pie – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 5/8 x 4 7/8, run through the Plank embossing folder, layer on Pacific Point – 3 3/4 x 5 and add to card front
