Positively Adore You Note Card

positively-adore-you-note

Sunday I set out to make ONE card for Monday’s blog post. About 15 minutes into my struggle, I realized that I had to make FIVE cards (one for each day of the week – if I wanted to keep my Monday – Friday posting schedule) and get them photographed before Sunday afternoon was too dusky. With the kitchen remodeling, I am not guaranteed to have access to my normal photo spot (in front of the kitchen sliding glass door) while the light is perfect for photography. Luckily, between my scrap folder and this fun stamp set, I did get the 5 cards made & photographed.

This note card was really QUICK!

Supplies: Stamps – My Favorite Things, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise, inks – Stampin’ Up! Green Galore (retired), Tempting Turquoise, die – Spellbinders, twine – We R Memory Keepers.
