A Day Late

No, it's not what you think. ;) I was planning on posting this card yesterday, but there was a small problem with that, in that, I hadn't made it yet! I don't know about you, but this weekend seemed like a whirlwind to me! Last week I was thinking - "Ooh, a three-day weekend with the hubby home! I'll be sure to get a lot of stamping done!". Well, truth be told, I DID. Just not as much as I would have liked. It was just too busy.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this card, though, and last night I was finally able to execute it. I went for a girly girl look, since it's for a Bridal Shower, and I was stoked to finally able to use some of that AC paper that I've been hording! :) I also used some of that yummy May Arts ribbon that I got in Jody's share, so this was a fun card to make!

This week, MFT is sponsoring the card sketch, over at CPS, and this is their sketch of the week. Make sure you head on over there, if you've never been the site! They're QUITE the source of inspiration!

I, of course, wanted to use the new stamp set from MFT, Shower Time, as well. This one is FULL of possibilities - I just love it! The tiny flowers can be added for such a sweet design element, like on the circle punched sentiment on this card and the scallop punched main image on my Bridal Shower paint can.

Well, I'm off to a MOMS Club meeting! I plan to have some Lizzie Anne on tap for you tomorrow, so stay tuned!!!

  1. This is cute as can be!! LOVE the colors, umbrella, layout! So fun! :)

  2. I soooo luv this card. My daughter is getting married next year & I wanted to make her bridal shower this one (if you don't mind) may go into my folder to be considered with some ideas that I have. I'll have to think about getting this stamp set, even if I don't use it for the shower, I can use it for other cards. Luv the paper & colors you picked.
