I Have a Bright Idea…

I’m trying to get back into the swing of things here after an amazing vacation. I wasn’t ready to come home.  But all good things must come to an end…or so they say.  We came home to loads of laundry, shopping for back-to-school supplies and clothes, an outside electrical issue and a dead computer.  Of course it’s the computer I use for all of my work, so it’s been extremely aggravating.  But things are finally starting to come together.  Slowly.

My card today uses Lightbulb Moment from My Favorite Things a la modes collection.

I’ve also used Fishtail Flags STAXLayered Rose and Simply Scallops Small Die-namics.  Base cardstock is one of my favorite MFT colors, Tangy Orange, and my image is stamped and colored on X-Press Blending Card.

I used Burano ink from Amuse Studio to highlight the word “bright.”

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Martinis on Me with a partial image from I’ve Got UR Back.  I used a kraft knife to cut around the girl’s arm so she could “lean” on the sentiment flag.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll be back soon!
