Share What You Love Suite

Good Morning everyone!  I hope your day is off to a great start!  Things are looking good here...kind of a nostalgic day!  While taking kids to school this morning Roy Clark came on the radio singing, Yesterday When I Was Young, ...reminding me of my mom and dad.  Now I'm here typing my blog, listening to Eddy Arnold, Glen Campbell, Andy Williams, Englebert...the goodies.  Oh how my mom LOVED Eddy Arnold and Englebert Humperdink.  Everyday when I came home from school one of them would be on her stereo, she had so many albums! My dad too...he loved big band music and the crooners!  I used to love to watch my mom and dad dance in the the kitchen.  My dad would take her in his arms and swing her around so gracefully, the would laugh and kiss...it made me so happy.  I love how music can evoke so many memories...happy and sad...it takes us to a different time!

Well...last night I had a class and it went great!  I LOVE my classes.  It's so wonderful getting together with other ladies...friends...getting to a place where there are no worries...just creating!  Of course I waited to the last minute to prepare so I was in my workshop most of the day.  I did have a plan though, which made it easier to get started.  My plan was to center my May classes around the Share What You Love Suite! Today, I'd like to share one of the cards that I created but didn't use at the class!  I hope you like it!

I LOVE this card!  It has a Crumb Cake card base with a 4" x 5 1/4" Fresh Fig mat then a 3 3/4" X 5" piece of Wood Textures designer paper.  I...OF COURSE...got the Gotta Have It All Bundle so I used the Love What You Do stamp set.  The background is inked in Pool Party then spritzed with water and stamped directly onto the designer paper.  I used my Fresh Fig and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers to color the stem and flower outlines then I took my blender pen and dipped it in Fresh Fig, starting from the bottom, I colored in each flower petal...making the bottom darker then the tops.  I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Memento Black ink.  Before adhering it to my card base I tied a piece of 1/4" Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon into a knot.  I then took four pieces of Linen Thread and tied a bow around the knot.  Super cute and easy card to make!  I hope you'll give it a try!  If you need supplies, I'd love to be your demonstrator...just click on SHOP and you can purchase what you need form my store!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by today!  I'll be sharing more of the cards from this suite over the next couple of weeks! I have to head down the mountain now to deliver orders so I'll be heading out soon!  You have a FABULOUS day!

  1. I loved reading your blog today - brought back my own memories of similar times with my parents, especially my Mom listening to music as we got off the bus. And your card is in my favorite colors - so of course, I LOVE IT! Thank you for sharing both your memories and your creation!
