Blue Green You’re Awesome Card

“You’re awesome” is one of my favorite kid compliments.

One of the offspring used to ask (during high school years), “Did my awesome check arrive?” (ie, payment for being so awesome) I actually made a card with a big check mark – an awesome check – and mailed it, with no return address, from a hotel I where I was visiting a friend. YEP, that awesome check has arrived.  😉

(I searched for a photo of the card – I have not found one)

Pacific Point, inks – Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Inks Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, VersaFine Deep Lagoon, dies – Lawn Fawn, stencil – Simon Says Stamp, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

On A Whim Emoji Note Cards

I spent this past weekend LOVING the American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim paper pad (6 x 6, 36 sheets). The only “bad” thing – there are 36 unique papers – no repeats. I am officially OUT of emoji paper!

Kitchen update:  The backsplash hit a SNAFU 2 weeks ago. The glass tile I fell in love with (YES, a splurge…it is a small kitchen) is persnickety to install. We had to order a few more boxes of glass tile after the first attempt to install did not go well (no stamps for me for a while!). Yesterday, round 2 of installation began, with a different contractor. MY FINGERS ARE CROSSED. On the bright side, I have a whole box of individual 1 x 1 inch glass tiles to use for some project (the top of a coffee table, maybe?).

Supplies: Stamp – Simon Says Stamp, paper – American Crafts Amy Tangerine On A Whim, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Orchid Opulence (retired), Wisteria Wonder, ink – Hero Arts Unicorn, die – Taylored Expressions, embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder white, organdy ribbon – Offray.
