Totally fabulous (oh yes you are!)


Today, a card for all of you, my friends.  Thank you so much for all of your kind words about my job, both on yesterday's post and over on Facebook.  I know that it won't be the end of the world, and I'm fortunate to have so many other things in my life to be thankful for, but I appreciate all of your words of support and encouragement.  Onward and upward, right?

I've been inspired by all of the tilted designs out there and had to try one for myself.  I thought the chevron border from Avery Elle's To the Point would work perfectly with the word bubble from Hello and the Flashy Letters from Mama Elephant.

The letters were so easy to line up--I just drew a line lightly with pencil before stamping, then erased it once the ink was dry.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Calypso Coral), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Mama Elephant (Hello, Flashy Letters), Avery Elle (To the Point)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Not Quite Navy, Calypso Coral, Basic Gray)

Thanks for stopping by, fabulous friends!  I hope you have a stellar Thursday.

Fabulous design and I love the colors! My To the Point set just arrived this week so I'm anxious to try it out. I used the dies but not the stamps so your card is wonderful inspiration!

Such a trendy modern card Christina! Love your layout of the sentiment and the colors. As I look up and see a few of the other comments I see a lot of us used the word "trendy" . Hope you are feeling a bit better about your loss.

Great card Christina, love the chevrons and all the colors, great job. Do you still have your Etsy Shoppe, I was interested in some of the adorable crochet flowers if you still have some.
Thanks,
