The Blues

Hi all!  How's everyone's Wednesday going?  It's been rainy here in Kentucky and we're expecting a couple inches of snow tomorrow nite.  It would actually be nice to see a "little" snow before Winter's over.

Have a card tonite that's all blue.  I'm entering it in the Moxie Fab World Die Cutting Challenge.  I'm also playing along with this week's Ribbon Carousel Challenge 35:

And The Shabby Tea Room Week 96:

Here's my card:

OK I'd be lying if I said this card didn't come together perfectly.  I rarely wake up early because I work nite shift, but sometimes on my days off when I do get up early....seems like I'm super inspired, lol.  So I whipped this beauty up this morning.  I used Pop Tones Cardstock.  My sentiment, blue ink, and doily die are Papertrey Ink.  I used Stickles, silky ribbon, and goodies from Jillibean Soup.  My pin is Maya Road.  I inked the edges of my card with brown Martha Stewart Ink.  When you add lots of inked edges and layers to your card it builds so easily.  I highly recommend trying multiple layers of cardstock, adding lots of embellishments, and inking edges.  And I've also shared my latest addiction with you lately - Stickles and Liquid Pearls.  I have used these products for years, but one day I stumbled upon Sankari's Sunshine Corner and I was amazed!  It's always fun to fall in love with an old product! 

Later today, the first sneak peek at Inspired By Stamping's January Releases.  Believe me, if you are a fan of Valentine's, you will adore Joanna's sets this month!!!

And I'd love for you to stop by The Cutting Cafe and check out the Design Teams projects using the Long Sentiment Tags and enter for a chance to win goodies from The Cutting Cafe.
