Hey there, Bleeps! I hope you're enjoying your week. I'm really glad to see that Friday is right around the corner, finally! Today, I have a card to share with you featuring *no stamping*! That's right, I didn't use any stamps on this card, but I used lots of ink! I made a card using some fun elements and techniques I've been indulging lately. Take a peek at how I did it:
- Trim cardstock to 5.5" x 4.25".
- Trim .5" cardstock strips from a 8.5" x 11" rustic cream cardstock.
- Ink the edges of the cream cardstock with tea dye distress ink.
- Adhere the strips at a diagonal on the A2 card front. Trim the excess from the edges of the card front.
- Ink the remaining of the cardstock strips with antique linen distress ink and blend the tea dye ink.
- Adhere brown lace trim.
- Add ruffled cabbage rose ribbon.
- Ink mini shipping tag and clothes pin and add twine then attach.
- Adhere flower die cut to tag.
- Ink sentiment strip and adhere to card front.

Thanks so much for commenting on my card and recipes yesterday! :) I enjoyed sharing it and hopefully there will be more. Last night, we had the baked ziti leftovers. Another secret I have is that I really dislike leftovers. I like the idea of them, especially for lunch, but after that I'm pretty much done with it and want something 'bold and new!' Most of the ziti is gone now (yes, just two of us eat in this house)!
So, tomorrow I have another meal planned...pulled pork sandwiches with cole slaw and french fries. I have a pork loin that I am going to slow cook all night. If it turns out right and I don't forget, I'll be sure to share that with you Friday. By the way, I don't discriminate against food! I like and eat just about everything! :)
Yesterday, Mac's college roommate and friend sent us some Belgian chocolates. He travels the world with his job and told us he was going to send us some chocolates when he last visited us. I had completely forgotten, until now that is! To sum these chocolates up...WOW! They are absolutely amazing. I am not a chocolate connoisseur, but the truffles, not photographed, but in that box look like large Hershey kisses and are extremely rich. I let them melt in my mouth and about two minutes after it was gone is when that satisfaction hit. WOW! I might look into a Belgium vacation sooner than later! The chocolate seashells are just so intricate in detail. I'm really glad I had the chance to try these out!
I created this card after I indulged in the chocolates, not realizing the sentiment I picked! I guess I discovered another everyday delight...Belgian chocolates! I have many daily delights, but now Belgian chocolates have been added to the list.
Thanks so much for stopping by again today!
