New Paper! { My Mind's Eye }


Goodness, it's been a busy week and I can't believe tomorrow is FRIDAY already. TGIF!!! :) I really do have a great job, but I *love* my weekends and look forward to them so much. This Saturday morning I've volunteered to work our company "Scrap Day" when we allow the entire community to bring in old appliances, computers, etc to be recycled. And we also get TONS of aluminum cans because we pay more than the market price. In past years we've had people come in with horse trailers and pickups FULL of bags of cans. The funniest thing we've ever seen was a station wagon bringing in a refrigerator tied to the back end. Seriously! lol
Yesterday was a beautiful day and after work I took my dachshund Lilly for a walk. She just gets *so* excited to go and loves it so much. So, I didn't get any cards made yesterday, but I did get two new SU sets "Office Accoutrement" and "Riveting" assembled and ready to use.
Don't you just love this paper I've used to make this card? My sweet DIL Jami (Crazy Daisy Creations) bought a large 12x12 pad called Magnolia by My Mind's Eye at Hobby Lobby last week for 50% off and she shared it all with me! Yeah! :) There are some awesome colors . . . florals, stripes, plaids and polkadots!

For this card, I started with a natural cardstock base and layered on the plaid paper after I put it through my Cuttlebug using the Tiny Mosaic embossing folder. (Yes Jami, I got another new one on eBay this week! :)

The tag is made using the Stampin' Up! "Riveting" set. "Thanks so much" was stamped twice in tempting turquoise. For the main tag, I punched it out with the 1-1/4" circle punch. For the center, I punched the other one out with the 1/2" circle punch and attached it with a dimensional. I layered these on the orange and turquoise 1-3/8 & 1-1/2" circles, attached a word window tab punch folded in half with a brad and ribbon. This was a very simple card to make! : )

I'm inspired by the patterned paper in the bug, too. Love the dimensional tag and just look at those yummy colors. Can't wait to hear what crazy things get dropped off tomorrow.
