I know, I've been scarce lately....................

and the only excuse that I have is that I've been staying totally busy spending a lot of time with my DH. We're both retired and love to play cards and we also recently purchased a Wii and we enjoy the bowling and playing golf. I bought the Wii Fit too, but I've not been using it like I should. In the past few years I've spent lots of time in my craft room and very little with my husband......I need to hit a happy medium!!!LOL Note: Ok, it's several days later (today is actually July 13th) and Teri has received her card and it's OK for me to post this now!LOL

This is a birthday card that I just completed for one of my wonderful cyber friends and even though I'm posting this now, I will not be able to show it here on my blog until she receives it! I totally fell in love with and cased this card that I saw at Splitcoast Stampers recently. I used the same Anna Griffin DP and the same Martha Stewart border punch, but changed the ribbon treatment and stamps.

I custom designed and cut the envelope for it using my Pazzles Inspiration software and cutting machine and included a liner using the same Anna Griffin DP. One thing I do want to add here is that if you haven't tried "Scor-Tape", you don't know what you're missing....that stuff is wonderful!!!!

Finished Card Size: 5 1/2"x5 1/2"

Papers: Anna Griffin, Bazzill and Gina K. "Pure Luxury"
Stamps: Studio G
Ink: Tsukineko Memento "Rich Cocoa"
Tools: Pazzles Inspiration Creative Cutter" and Bow Easy
Accessories: want2scrap "Say it with Pearls", Martha Stewart "Doily Lace" Border Punch, May Arts "100% Silk Ribbon, Scor-Tape

Beautiful card Pam, very elegant. I know what you mean by dividing equal time between DH and craft, very difficult.
