a quick share | hello card

So I'm trying to recoup from the past week of all the HSN craziness, but I thought I'd take a quick moment to share this great little card from our Miss Shari! [ Shapes | Life Additions #2 (chevron+tabbed folder / This+That: Lucky (flower+vase) Love the chevron design on there! Shari made the chevron background larger than the tabbed folder shape, adhered it, and then trimmed off the edges of the chevron background. Perfect placement of the chevron. Sweet! It's just ever-so happy and springy! Perfect to go along with the mood of the spring weather we are having here. [...]

Our family [...]

accentuate the positive…and negative.

The Queen of Cards is here again! Look at these fabulous cards she made!Loooove the positive- and negative-space way she made these!   [ Shapes | Happy (title) / This+That: Summertime (butterfly)] Shari printed these--including the aqua patterned background paper--and then ran them through her Silhouette to cut out the butterflies.
