Card Share!

Happy Wednesday! Hope your having a GREAT week!! Ours has been FULL of crazy weather.. I am just READY for some sun and springy weather! :) we got some today.. about about 10 minute intervals! HA! Sun, Rain, Wind, Sun, Rain.. repeat.. all day .. the last few days.. BUT at least it isnt SNOW! :)

So I have been doing some crafty prep work! I have decided instead of just sitting in front of the TV.. I am gonna cut things.. so last week I cut TONS of felt.. this week.. CUTE buttons, and tags...

I made up this card using some of the Be Mine Digi Set by Echo Park from Jessica Sprague site.. they are ON SALE for only a $1 today.. ends tonite at midnite.. they are FABULOUS! Here is a link to the 2 that are on sale ~ Be Mine Papers and Be Mine Elements #1
Stamps, CS, dies, and felt from PTI...

I print MOST of my digi stuff on paper I have glimmer misted... it is hard to tell but IRL it is so shiny!! LOVE IT!
Here are my buttons- I will be using them OFTEN!
here is just a few of the sheets I printed.. do you see the frame in the card.. it is below on the paper.. it is supposed to really have the post card in the center.. BUT I didnt want to do I just pasted the cute PP over it.. and added the post mark, and xoxo tag! :) Fun fast and easy!

  14. So pretty!! Great minds do think alike on that color scheme!! :) Love all your buttons too!! I'll have to try glimmer misting first and then stamping. I do always worry about my ink smearing but it seems to do ok with Palette ink (not as good with PTI ink though).
