Love


Tuesday is better than Monday, but boy do I wish it were Friday already! I think the warm weather does that to you. Anyway, today I'm sharing a card inspired by Moxie Fab's Color Challenge. I chose to use Papertrey Ink's spring moss + lemon tart + ripe avocado. I also found a way to use a new stamp set I won by Basic Grey and some clear charms by Tim Holtz. I added the sentiment to the back of the clear charm to make it appear like some sort of finished embellishment. To adhere it without showing adhesive, I used a glue stick that dries clear (for the most part). I think I would have colored in some of the stamp if it were not for this challenge, but that stamp is just cute!

Here's what we did for a couple of hours this weekend. Check out a few of the pictures!

Well, I hope you enjoy your day and thanks so much for visiting my blog! :)
