Just Because . . .

Just because it's not that late, and besides, I felt like it. The inspiration for this card did not come from another card but rather the very cool header on Allison's Stampin' When I Can blog. I love her new look, and yes, I'm a big fan of black and white. What the photo doesn't show (very well anyway) are the Crystal Stickles I added to the big flowers (or weeds or whatever they are). While the Stickles are clear, they are reflecting the color of the Ocean cardstock - very cool in person.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Black, and Ocean cardstock; Black and Ocean ink pads; With Love June SOTM and Say It In Style May SOTM sets; Crystal Stickles; and Acrylic discs from Michael's.

With this card, I'm going to put the June SOTM away for a few weeks and concentrate on April. Most likely I'll be using a lot of the May set, too, a set of about 40 great words and phrases.

Oh, and by the way, I've seen Close to My Heart's new catalog via an interactive catalog on the consultants' web site. There are some great new papers, stamp sets, and the art work looks awesome. That said, I'm going to go put my pajamas on and brew a cup of Sleepytime tea. Ideally, I'll get up early and go to work early so I can come home early tomorrow and get a little jumpstart on the weekend. Talk to you then!
