Week 25: Rainbow Birthday

Starting to get back into the groove of things. I was going to wait to post this card because I don't want to ruin the surprise for anyone but I just couldn't resist!

For this week's card, I was checking out the CAS(e) this Sketch blog for inspiration for a clean and simple card when I saw this designer's card. I just got new ribbon recently that was just perfect to do the same thing. I hate replicating other people's card but I just couldn't resist this week.

The new ribbon I bought for me at Winners but it is by American Crafts. The sentiment was gifted to me and the rhinestones are from Michaels.

Week 24: Hawaiian Happy Birthday

I just came in from sitting on my patio because I was getting too hot. Can you believe it?! Its end of September. This type of weather is my favourite: sunny during the day and cool at night. Perhaps that's why I'm getting married at this time next year?! Speaking of which, I haven't posted any cards recently because any spare time I have had to craft lately I have been using to fool around with Photoshop. I am hoping to make my wedding stationary using Photoshop so I have to be good at it first ;) Once I finalize the stationary and its sent out to the respective people I will post a sneak peek.

It's funny how sometimes you start off with one vision in your head but by the time you've finished your card you end up somewhere completely different. That is exactly what happened to me this week. However, I love the end product, which I didn't think I'd say! I was inspired by CAS(e) this Sketch #46, however I wasn't quick enough in posting it so the entry has now expired. C'est la vie!

If you like the sentiment font check out this free download for Duxbury Beach. This would be so cute to use overtop of photos for a scrapbook!
