Guess who's enjoying a day off today? Yep, that would be me.
No big plans or anything but if I can tear myself away from Storm of Swords for even a little while then I'll call the day productive enough. ;)
Yesterday the mail lady brought me a box of the new Basic Grey PB&J goodies so you know that I had to jump right into them and make a card. The rainbow of bright fun colors in these papers have been calling to me ever since I saw the CHA sneak peeks back in January. But ya know what the first thing was that caught my eye as I opened up the collection pack? This floral motif that was printed on the top of the cover sheet. I liked it so much that I fussy cut it out to use as a main decorative element on my card. Just a thought, but it would be super cool if BG and the other paper companies would start making some super decorative border stickers that look like these clusters of flowers and other motifs. That way you could dress up a card with one quick peel and stick! A girl can dream anyway... ;)
So this was one of the rare occasions that I made my card base first without even picking out a stamp to go with it. Though I knew that I wanted a small fairy to either sit on the flowers of peek out from behind them. When I grabbed my Sugar Nellie binder sweet Faye was just who I was looking for. Her clothes actually reminded me of a strawberry and considering the name of the paper is PB&J it is an obvious choice. I mean, come on, strawberry jam is THE best on a peanut butter sandwich, LOL! I fussy cut her off of the mushroom she was originally sitting on so that Faye would fit into the over all design. I just love her and all of her freckled cuteness. Plus, she's another one to check off my "ink it up" list. Woot, woot!
Oh and that fun mini jar stamp is part of the Basic Grey Picnic set that coordinates with the PB&J papers. I don't know about you but I'm still diggin' the mason jars. :)
Ok then, have fun today and be crafty!
