Hey there! Hope y'all had a fabulous Valentine's Day!
I have a card to share today that I made for my very good friend, Megan. I was looking at my calendar the other day and thought "Megan's birthday is, like, two days away! I should send her a card!" For some reason, I didn't transfer all my birthday dates to my 2014 calendar (very strange of me… where was my mind??) and so it was just coincidence that I thought of her birthday! I'm not really good at remembering birthdays. That's why I have a calendar. ;)
Anyway, I wanted to make a really FUN card in a short amount of time. I started out with some Dear Lizzy "Lucky Charm" chipboard. I love chipboard. It's a great way to add dimension to your projects! I should buy more chipboard in the future…. I honestly don't have that much as of right now! (My goodness-- I ramble!)
Kits are fabulous for getting things done quickly. So I got out my scraps from the SFTIO "Belonging" Kit (October 2013) and cut them into random-width strips and made a starburst out them. Then I added some brown mist splotches. Next came the brown paper bag type circle, my alphas, and the chipboard circles. I used quite a bit of machine stitching on this card. I think it is the perfect finishing touch!
Most of the papers are from the "Recorded" line by Allison Kreft.
Thanks for stopping by! I ALWAYS enjoy reading your comments! They make my day! :)
