I always look forward to our Freak Blog Tours. My fellow "freaky" friends always come up with the BEST ideas!! You should have just come from the fantabulous blog of Erin Blair.
I actually started making this card last week when my super cool friend (and fellow Freak), Jan Tinklenberg, was named as the Featured Stamper for the week on Stampin' Up's demo website - Stampin' Connection. I was inspired by one of her layouts (click here to see it on her blog - it's the Halloween one!) to make this. I am sooooo ready for SPRING!!! Hence, the happy, springtime colors.
Stamps: Vintage Vogue
Paper: Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana, Whisper White
Ink: Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Barely Banana
Accessories: Sending Love epoxy brad, silver eyelet, word window punch, 1/2" circle punch, white taffeta ribbon, Elegant Bouquet textured impressions folder, dimensionals
Don't you LOVE it when you are frantically trying to leave work so you can run some errands so you can run home and create something SPECTACULAR for your blog post, only go have your darling daughter call you on your way out and say, "Mom? Ya know that party I have to go to this evening? I need TWO presents to take 'cause it's for TWO of my friends!! Any ideas?" WHAT????!!???? Hence, these fun little matchbook giftcard holders. Again, I couldn't resist springy colors (especially since the dang gift card was lime green and RED!!! Sheesh!!)!!

And last, but certainly NOT least, I had to just throw in another scrapbook layout that I did using MDS (did I ever mention I absolutely LOVE this program???? Probably ... )
