Perk Up!


Hello, Dies R Us friends!  I hope you all had a good weekend.  I ran around a lot last week so I was happy to stay home, which is where I most love to be, anyway -- puttering around and having myself some crafty time.

I made today’s card for one of the gals I worked with before retirement (so lovely to say that).  I chose this Bugaboo digi called “Coffee Time – Perk Up” specifically for her because she was always so tired.  A good employee, but definitely sleep deprived.

I colored with Copic markers on X-Press It Blending Card.  The image is cut with the largest of the Memory Box Stitched Scalloped Circles and then layered onto a Cheery Lynn Cape Cod Doily.  Yes, the pretty doily is all covered up, but I love the dainty scallop it adds to the edge.

I think I’d be happy if I could add some kind of botanical corner treatment to every card.  I have the most fun making these little arrangements, and I’ve noted to myself to add more branches, sprigs, twigs, flowers, leaves, flourishes and whatnot to my future orders.  The only problem I have with that is making a decision.  The selection at Dies R Us is huge.  Today I’ve used:

If anything I used is out of stock as you read this, please know there is lots more to choose from.  The search field at Dies R Us is a fabulous and fun tool.  Type your words in every which way and enjoy what comes up.

Don’t forget to check the the Challenge Blog to see what’s up there.  You might win something if you play along.  Have a happy day!
