Make It Monday #73

Happy Friday! I needed a quick card last night for Mamaw's birthday, and I remembered this week's Make It Monday is stamping on patterned paper, so this is what I ended up with:

Honestly, I'm not 100% in love with this one. I was very rushed, so there was no experimenting with colors, no do-overs. I just had to go with what ever happened! That is what is bad about waiting until the last minute!
Anyway, the gingham patterned paper is Lily Bee, I thought it was a nice compliment to Fine Linen, so that is my card base. I stamped the flourishy vine from TANL in Ocean Tides.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies: (All Papertrey Ink, unless otherwise noted)
Paper: Fine Linen, Stamper's Select, Rustic White, Lily Bee patterned
Stamps: Lovely Layers, Turning A New Leaf, Tiny Tags, Mixed Messages
Dies: Lovely Layers, Tiny Tags
Other: Jute button twine

Happy Independence Day

Hello and Happy 4th of July! I hope you are having a nice day! I spent a little time cleaning, and a little time in my craft room today. This evening we are going down the street for a traditional family gathering. I found what looks to be a tasty Feta Dip on Pinterest I will be making to bring.
While I had a little extra time in my craft room today, I decided to whip up a little card to honor today. I cannot take 100% credit for the idea for this card. I remember maybe last year? seeing Amber from Damask Love using her Botanical Silhouettes dandelion flowers to make fireworks, so I decided to give it a whirl, since I have no actual fireworks stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh, and a little tip I heard before I go...I heard if you blow one of your hands off with fireworks, you get an extra day off work! ;-) Sick, I know. I do have a bit of a twisted sense of humor!
