Congrats Daisies


Hi there, friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I am SO excited because I am on a little mini-vacation. This has been a very busy week! Our house was on the market for almost six months, and it is now under contract!! We had the inspection done on it this morning. In addition, we have had a few bumps in the proverbial road this past weekend as well. But WHEW! We are making it through... God is good, and He proves time and time again that He is in control and that He works ALL things for the good of those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:28).
So, yeah. I'm on a trip. And you're gonna be JEALOUS!! I am in Atlanta...and I'm gonna meet up with JenMarie, Nina Brackett, and Tami Grandi on Friday!! :) Hooray!
On to my card for the day! I loved this cute paper when I found it. It's glittery and colorful and flowery on one side, and it has a great coordinating dotted side, too. I love when you REALLY CAN use both sides of a paper on one card. :) The paper is Happy Day - Confetti by SEI. I used a Hawaiian Shores card base to bring out the blue and layered on the two sides of the SEI paper with pop dots. I wrapped some Melon Berry (I think!) satin ribbon around the patterned paper and tied a pretty bow. I tied on a button using Black Burlap String and left the tails of the string visible. I layered some Webster's Pages Turquoise Embroidered Trim above the melon ribbon. The sentiment is a Basic Grey Basics Greetings rub-on. I really adore this rub-on set, and I've seen it featured in Paper Crafts publications lately!! :)
Be sure to check out the CLEARANCE section at Limelight...and keep in mind that I'll throw in a FREE Unity single stamp to each order received while we are away (through Saturday). :) Just a little something for the wait. And who doesn't love free stamps??
How 'bout a couple of cute pics of Katy to say goodbye with? :) Little Miss Diva had her hair cut for the first time yesterday, and I snapped a couple of pictures...The first picture is right after her haircut (with her lollipop in hand).
This second picture was taken in the car this morning right before we left for Atlanta. Notice that, in addition to her Ariel sunglasses and pink purse (oh, and her signature amber necklace), she has three...count 'em, THREE...hair clips in her hair! LOL!
