Time With Friends

While in Hawaii, we had such a good time at the beach with one of Michael's coworkers that I wanted to make them a card to let them know. The sentiment from the Hostess Level III Time Well Spent set was perfect!

The base card is Old Olive with a Naturals White layer, sponged with Old Olive ink. The patterned paper across the bottom is from the NEW Summer Picnic DSP that is in the Occasions Mini Catalog. The flower also came from the mini, as it uses the Die-cut Blooms set - I'm absolutely LOVING those! They layer together so nicely and with four different colors to choose from and a multitude of different shapes, that package will go a LONG way! In the center of the flower is a Fire Rhinestone brad, and I curled the edges of the petals up a bit to give it more dimension. I colored the sentiment with Stampin' Write markers and then finished it off with some Old Olive Wide Grosgrain Ribbon.

I've also made some Easter cards that I will try to post either later today or tomorrow... and then that will have to hold you over as we're off again on another adventure. This one won't be so far from home though... just some camping and visiting with family for Easter. I do hope you all are gearing up for a wonderful Easter celebration! Remember to get those cards in the mail early this week to wish your loved ones a happy holiday as well.
