My New Home!

Hi there!!  I'm so excited to be making my first post on my new blog!!  Doesn't it look great?  I bought a Blog in a Box from Sweet Shoppe Designs and then tried and tried to figure it out.....but couldn't!  To the rescue was my good friend Karen Giron!  She set the whole thing up for me!!!  Thank you, Karen!!!
Okay, now onto the reason you came here:  A card!!!


I made this card using the new set recently released from Verve called Happy Days.  This set is FABULOUS....one of my favorites from the release!  Isn't that large flourish beautiful?  Most of the sentiments are made to fit in that flourish!  The dp on the card is a mix of October Afternoon Report Card and Fly A Kite.  The crochet ribbon is from my LSS.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a great weekend!

Stamps:  Happy Days (Verve Stamps)
Paper:  Kraft, Vintage Cream, October Afternoon Report Card and Fly a Kite DP
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Hawaiian Shores, Tangerine Tango
Accessories & Tools:  Circle and Blossom Nestabilities, Crochet Ribbon, Twill Ribbon (SU!),  Adhesive Gems, Sewing Machine, Foam Tape
