You want MY picture, right?


Abbey decided it was much more important for me to take her picture today instead of the newly created card. I obliged, since she is missing her papa and really needs a little more tlc. Or does she think I'm the one who desires more attention?

Being true to her feline self, Abbey bored of me rather quickly and I took the opportunity to capture what I set out to photograph.

Today's card was inspired by the Designer Series Paper currently offered through Stampin' Up! Pretty in Pink is not a color I grab for often, however this does use up one more piece of the paper that multiplies in the stamp room when I'm not looking.

Recipe:

Stamps: Polka Dots and Paisleys, So Many Scallops
Paper: Pretty in Pink DSP, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Basic Black, Whsiper White
Misc: Ribbons, Buttons, Crop-A-Dile, Paper Piercer

You can't see details here, I realize that. The button on the center of the scallop fits perfectly inside the "sweet of you" sentiment that is inked in black here. Since the large black circle seemed so bare I decided to set the depth of my Crop-A-Dile and punched holes between each of the scallops. The scallops are also cut between each other and folded up for more dimension. I used the paper piercer to poke holes in each scallop as well. Really, it looks much nicer IRL. Really!

Now, to pass 11 more days 'til I see DH again. Ugh. It's worse than waiting for Christmas as a kid. *Big sigh* All is well, and life IS good. Of course, it'll be that much better when DH is home ;-). Enough sap.

Happy stampin'!

Cute card, cute Ab-cat, and I know you're anxious for your sweetie to get home! Jim talked to him the other day about the ignition canister on his bike. It's always something with bikes, isn't it?
