You love to cool off on a late-summer day with a refreshing mug of lemonade – the Mason Jar Mug Die-namics makes it easy to emulate that feeling in paper form!

Tropical Engagement Congratulations

We just can’t get enough of Heather Pulvirenti so we had to ask her back! You’ll love her gorgeous (single layer!) design.

Hi, everyone! I’m so glad to be back again to share another card I created using My Favorite Things goodies.
14994080077_9a01b0e740_b
My card today features the Together Forever and Tropical Sensations sets.  To create my card, I started with a piece of white card stock and stamped the “Happy Engagement” sentiment in gray ink.
090914 CU
Next, I stamped images from the Tropical Sensations set in coral, yellow, lime, and teal.  Once the inks dried a bit, I attached the stamped layer to the card base with pop dots. Well, that wraps it up for me today.  Huge thanks to My Favorite Things for the opportunity to guest design once again using their amazing products! :)
