Big Blooms Long Cards
It all started with the envelopes...... I live two hours from a Target, so I don't get to shop there often. One of the times, I got to actually browse, I found these long, green, CUTE #10 envelopes. The flap has stripes similar to the striped paper in the retired Sassy DS paper from Stampin'Up! Of course, I reached for my stash of Sassy paper to make a card. I owe SO many thank you cards... I'm always behind!! I have to admit though, these long cards were a struggle for me. I'm so used to the standard size. Big Blooms was perfect because the flower are, well, .. BIG. :)
I used Big Blooms from the Stampin'Up! Spring Mini, and my Kindness Jumbo Roller Wheel (with Craft White). The rest is the paper punched out with both circle punches. Flowers are on dimensionals. Gingham ribbon too, and of course a little glitter sparkle in the flower centers with my Sakura glitter pen... man, I love that pen!!
I had all the stuff out, so I decided to play a little and do another one. This one shows a little more of the green that matches the envelope a bit better.
Okay... very busy day here at the Turnbow house. Dropped off our dear boy dog named Abby for a hair cut and bath, ran A to pre-school. I've now spent all my free time for the day here with you all. I need to pick up the twins, take them for lunch and to the dentist, bring them home, then get A to gymnastics. Somewhere in there, I need to make a dash to the grocery store and make mini banana muffins for A's pre-school snack tomorrow. Oh, and dinner for the everyone too..... hmmmm maybe we'll grab fast food tonight. No stampin time for me today.... hopefully tonight when everyone is tucked in.
Hope you all have a super day... even if it's crazy busy like mine! Thanks for stopping by!!
