Where is summer running off to? I can't believe it will be July this week!
It's been a fun and busy summer so far. Here is one highlight- an impromtu visit to hear one of my favorite authors speak in my own town, Jennifer Weiner. She was absolutely hilarious. My sister and I had the shoulder-shaking laughs nearly the entire time. We were able to get a photo with her at the end of her talk- I'm the 'where's waldo behind Jennifer'- and that's my sister with her new BFF, Jennifer.
Good times. And for any 'Good in Bed' fans, my sister said she'd have given me anything if I would have yelled NIFKIN when we all clapped for her at the end. Anybody think that's funny or is it just me?
Onto the card....Here is a card I made for the CAS sketch from last week....
stamps- aviary- Stampin UP, Birthday- Card Chatter- CTMH
tools- woodgrain impression plate- PaperTrey Ink, MS Score Board

Here is a card I made for some friends who had twins (a boy and a girl). I tried to taylor the colors to items that were similar to the registry (I think it was kind of a monkey/animal theme).
The paper is kind of a cement colored stock- love it. Anyhow, I ran a layer through the cuttlebug using my taylored expressions impression plate. I layered that onto the card front, but not before wrapping some twine and topping the layer off with a wooden button from CTMH (love those and would like to find them in bulk somewhere- any ideas where???). The letters are a in a font that I love, it's an old CTMH set of stamps that i have and at the moment I can't recall the name of them. I stamped each of them and mounted the D and E (baby initials)...rounded the bottom corners of both layers, and there we have it.

JUGS has a great sketch this week so I used it as the inspiration for this card.
I used a texture plate on both of the inside and outside layer. Then I stamped the doily images and die cut and embossed them using my nestabilities and cuttlebug. Stamped the birthday sentiment and decided to add a doily to the inside of the card as well.
