Lovely with a little shine!!!!

So the weekend I decided I was going to learn some new card stuff, I just HAPPENED to be in the right place at the right time…the stamp aisle of Joann’s.  This LOVELY lady had gone to pay & then came back to offer me a coupon.  I started to ask her some questions about embossing & it the rest is history.  Louise introduced herself as Louise like in Thelma and Louise.  She is so full of life.  She is nice to EVERYONE she meets.  I mean, she’s the type of person that makes you want to be better.  AND the best part??  She is HILARIOUS.  I never have a dull moment with Louise.  I can’t lie, I would be LOST in the card making world without her!!!  She gives me SO much information….like the right adhesives & paper to use, which kind of markers to use with which kind of ink and how to keep going when I just think I’m pretty much BONKERS.  She is so great.  And SO encouraging.  And SOOOOO LOVELY…so….this went to Lovely Louise.  In my phone she is Louise Joann’s.  I used the Heidi Swapp “Lovely” die.  I then used the “heart of gold” die from Neat & Tangled.  I added an addtl 2 layers of card stock to the “lovely” & “heart of gold”…or teal…for added depth.  I put the sizzix adhesive sheets on these before I sent them through the big shot.  It really helps!!!  Then came out the sequins….because there is never too much shine & glitz!!!  IMG_2152IMG_2155

I then decided she needed an envelope. 🙂  AND HERE WE ARE….after ANOTHER adventure of closing down Michael’s.  I LOVE LOUISE.



Next up, card for my FABULOUS mother.  So, she LOVES the song “happy”.  And I HATE it.  SO, of COURSE I found this Heidi Swapp “happy” die.  So, of COURSE I could ONLY hear this song.  It was only after a few weeks that I realized it could be the “happy” for “happy birthday” or “happy mother’s day”.  🙂  So, more foiled paper, another “heart of gold” and some melted perler beads……winnnn…i LOVE my mom!!!!  She is the best.  And is also a HUGE encouragement.  She opened the card up and found ANOTHER hidden shiny pink “happy”!!!!



And on THAT note…HAPPY last few days of April!!!!!!
