You & Me Coastal

Good morning, Friends! Better late than never, right? My boys let me sleep in this morning. I am fighting the start of a head cold. Ugh! I have been taking this herbal medicine for sinuses called Kick Ass. Well, it smells and tastes like something that could… well, let's just say it's AWFUL!! We had heard that it's worked for a few people so we decided to try it too. I don't really know if it has helped me. And because I was having trouble sleeping through the night due to a stuffy nose, my husband told me to take some Alka-Seltzer. So I did and they let me sleep as long as I could. Now I just feel like I have a hangover. Got my coffee and some breakfast. Hopefully that will help. I also had a headache. Really hoping that all goes away for a great day!! But it won't be that great as my friend Sherry won't be coming for a visit. Bummer!! The mountains are supposed to be getting a LOT of snow this weekend and we want her to be safe. So we are planning another weekend. Stinking snow!! Why can't it snow her in on "this"side of the divide!! Love ya Sherry!!

Today's card was made for a swap I was in last month. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Round all four corners of a piece of Coastal Cabana
  • Adhere a piece of Fresh Prints designer paper to the Coastal Cabana piece
  • Tie a piece of Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon around this and adhere to card base
  • Use the 2 1/2" circle punch to punch a circle from Real Red and from the Fresh Prints designer paper
  • Cut the designer paper circle in half and adhere one half to the Real Red circle
  • Use the Essentials paper piercer pack to pierce a half circle in the Real Red part
  • Stamp image from Perfect Pennants onto Whisper White using Real Red and Crumb Cake markers then punch out using the 1 3/4" circle punch
  • Adhere stamped image circle to other circle and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp heart onto Whisper White using Coastal Cabana and cut out
  • Adhere heart to a strip of Crumb Cake with both ends flagged then adhere to card
  • Color a rhinestone with a red sharpie and adhere to heart
  • Add three rhinestones to upper left side of card
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
