Friday quickie post...

... so I can get it in gear & start loading all of that paper crafting product into the Xterra for the crop vendor gig in Spring Hill!  If you are in the area and want to pop in, go to Crop-N-Doodle-Do's website for directions.  I'll have current product as well as discontinuing, & already retired items!

I'll also have my coloring arsenal with me, so if you want a few live tips, come on by!  I usually leave all of my scrapping stuff at home... it's easier to just bring stuff to color so I don't end up overloading my vehicle with stuff I won't get to use!  I know, a crop is supposed to be time to get your pages done, but I'm just a rebel that way ;)


On to the fun stuff for today!  This almost-one-layer card showcases an upcoming stamp set that will be available in May & June only!!  I really like the monochromatic look.  And even though there is a bow & butterflies, it could almost pass for a guy card.  Maybe.  I don't know.


Stamps:  Found Joy (coming soon!)
Other:  EK Success edger punch, foam tape, misc. ribbon & pearls


I LOVE that edger punch.  I used it for the tag panel... turned out pretty good.  I edged everything in BU ink with a manicurist pad for a softer look.

What do you think?
