It was a simply gorgeous weekend here and I do hope you had the same. I spent time in the garden, a sorely neglected task which still not complete. But when is gardening ever "done"? A bit of weeding, digging, pruning, and a few flats of "Lipstick" impatiens and my little world is a better place. Don't you love that name ... "Lipstick"? They are a delicious blend in shades of pink and raspberry. I love them. Perhaps I'll have a moment to post a few photo's later this week ... 'til then I have this to share.
Kirsty and the Design Team over at The City Crafter are celebrating "firsts". The first day of summer (or winter depending on your location) was just this past week. Of course there are first anniversaries, first homes, and especially first birthdays.
My project is brighter than I am used to or comfortable with. However, who can celebrate a first birthday without some cheer and bling? Beginning with Whisper White card stock, printed papers were mixed, matched and layered. A new collection being released next week includes those luscious stripes and adorable pink numbers (I'll have more to say about that soon). The crown comes from Artistic Etchings. The chipboard is painted and "glitterfied" with Dazzling Diamonds and Chunky Essentials glitter.
The bow is seam binding dyed in So Saffron Classic ink. Two punches created the tag ... Large Tag and Pinking Hearts Border. With the sentiment in pink and a button from Design Buttons - Subtles collection ... I think it's sweet. The pin is a Viola original - fabulous ... just like her blog banners!
It was so nice of you to visit ... thanks for stopping by!
