soft and pretty

It’s a beautiful day here. I have laundry hung in the sunshine and lemon loaf in the oven. Sure feels like a wonderful spring day to me.

Inspired by all the sunshine, yellow seems like the theme for today. I thought I’d share this soft and pretty lemony color combo card. It’s another sympathy card that’s still here on my desk. I must confess that I’m so bad at mailing things. It’s definitely on my to do list for today.

This card was designed as a sympathy card but you could use it for many different occasions. I love the little Maya Road Banner Chipboards and they are a perfect place for adding in a sentiment. If you use clear stamps, it’s really easy to bend  your sentiment as you place it on the acrylic block so that it will stamp perfectly on the banner.

I’ve also discovered that I have a recent Stickles addiction. I like glitter but hate the mess. Stickles makes it so easy to add a little shine just where you want it. That way I don’t have to go through the day with glitter on my hands, clothes and face. I hate that.  Bye-bye glitter girl!



Enjoy your day!
