Happy Monday, y’all. When you read this, I’ll either be loading up to head to the airport, or laying on my bed in the fetal position, sucking my thumb and wailing….”I DON’T WANNA GO!!” 🙂
Cuz…I don’t wanna! Finn doesn’t wanna me to, either! Waaaa!
But. It is what it is, yes? And I’m sure once I get going, all will be well. Right now, though, I’m working my way thru the pre-trip panics!
Enough about that! Let’s look at my card for today. I used the new Glimmer Paper – it’s hard for me to resist it, really! And some Succulent Framelits and Succulent Garden DSP. And the All Things Thanks for a couple of sentiments. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one comes from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
And my colors come from this week’s Color Throwdown!
I started with an Old Olive piece of paper from the Succulent Garden DSP and matted it on Crumb Cake. The next layer is a piece of Whisper White stamped with the linen-y/burlap-y image in the Timeless Textures stamp set in Crumb Cake. I sponged the edges with more Crumb Cake and then matted it on Crumb Cake and SNAILd it to the card front.
My sentiment is from the All Things Thanks set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry on a strip of Whisper White. I snipped the end with my Paper Snips. Then I used the little banner die in the Succulent Framelits to cut an Old Olive and a Rich Razzleberry banner. I set it all aside until I was ready for it.
My flower is cut with the Succulent Framelits from the new Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper. I cut 2 of the large and medium sizes of the succulent flower petals and one small flower, and lightly sponged all the edges with Rich Razzleberry. I also cut a few of the small “center” flowers and sponged them as well. To build the flower, I lightly rolled all the tips with my Bone Folder, and then adhered all the layers together with my Handlheld Stapler. I used a Glue Dot to help adhere a Rich Razzleberry Enamel Shape to the middle of the flower.
I pulled a bunch of strands of thread from a length of 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon. Some of them I wound up (like girls twirl their hair into a rope!) and then I stapled the ends together to form a burlap thread wreath. Then I used some Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front. Next I added the sentiment and the two banners I’d cut earlier, using Liquid Glue (and a Stampin’ Dimensional under the end of the sentiment). Finally – the flower – also adhered with Liquid Glue. As the picture above shows, I used several strands of my burlap thread to tie a bow, then I adhered it with a Glue Dot. And that was it for the card front!
On the inside, I started with a Whisper White panel. I matted a narrow strip of the Succulent Garden DSP to a Crumb Cake mat and adhered it down the side. Then I stamped a second sentiment from All Things Thanks in Rich Razzleberry.
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more of the Timeless Textures “burlap” in Crumb Cake across the front…

So…I think we’ve pretty much established that Finn loves him some sticks!
But the other day, we bumped stick-loving up a notch!
The stick came inside…
Cuz, of course, on 30 acres, surrounded by trees, there’s always a chance he won’t be able to find a new stick anywhere! And that just wouldn’t do at all! 😉
