SAB FRIENDSHIP BLOOMS

Good morning all! I think I overdid it yesterday (I am not sure if it was the bathroom cleaning, mopping, or laundry) because today I am not feeling so well. But, I have a million things to do so I have to push through it...ugggghhhhh!!! Anyhoo, today I wanted to share another SAB set with you - I love the SAB sets this year, they are all so rockin'!!!! This card was made with the Friendship Blooms set and I love it! It is VERY me, teehee! The base of this card is Old Olive which I layered with Real Rust - love this combo!! Then, I used some of that wonderful new DP Afternoon Tea from the Occasions Mini - I love everything in that little mini! The image is stamped on Naturals White in Real Rust and then layered again on Mellow Moss which is what the sentiment (also from Friendship Blooms) is also stamped on in the same color. I again used my ticket corner punch and inked the edges with Real Rust to bring out the background paper. I used my paper piercer on the corners to add some interest to the card. The sentiment is punched out using my Key Tag Punch and I added two mellow moss brads. And, of course, I used my jumbo eyelets (just for you Debbie!!!) and threaded them with my double stitched Groovy Guava ribbon. All in all, I really liked how this card turned out - hope you like it too!
FACT # 16
I LOVE coffee and can drink it any time of day or night! I look forward to it everyday and that first sip, aaaahhhhh!! I tell myself that it is okay because I only drink two cups in the morning but in reality it is more like four because my coffee cup is soooo very big - LOL! I don't see myself ever giving it up! And, yes, I have been known to frequent Starbucks!!
