Bling and roses

Can't go wrong with bling and roses, now can you? I made this card the other night. I have a number of thank you cards needed for gifts and hospitality received during my recent string of travels and I finally started on them with this one. I used a piece of DCWV Ciao Bella paper, which was so lovely in it's own right, some ZVA bling, a Making Memories bling frame, a sticker from the Dollar Store, and a Michael's stamp. I glimmer misted the little background paper for the sentiment and heat embossed the image. All in all, simple, yet still gorgeous, if I do say so myself. 

Remember that tomorrow is National Scrapbook Day, so set aside time for yourself to honor this beautiful creative road we are all on.

Dippin' Dot Digitals on a rainy Wednesday

I cannot believe I woke up to rain!!! Despite the gray outside, Paper Popsicles Ice Cream Week keeps me looking forward to the sooner rather than later days of warm sun and cool treats. It is Dippin' Dot Digitals today and Tricia just posted an adorable project using a BRAND NEW shaped template. I simply must have this one for myself, check it out and I am sure you will agree.

I decided to use this uber cute sundae image for a layout this week. My sis works at Baskins Robbins so it was the perfect embellishment for a layout about her job.
How cool must it be to work in an ice cream shop? I personally think it would be dangerous to the waistline, but Sister has kept her girlish figure quite well. 

Head over to Paper Popsicles and check out the other wonderful designs for the DT and don't forget to grab the Freebie and play along with our challenge this week!
