Trend Week-Vellum



Screen Shot 2015-07-12 at 1.18.28 PMHello Friends,  It’s Saturday so you know what that means.  It’t time for this week’s challenge over at Just Us Girls.  On a side note, when you read this post I will hopefully be away for my (Monumental) Pre-Birthday weekend getaway, lathered up with sunscreen and floating around the lazy river at the Omni Resort in Orlando. Can’t wait! The only sad note is my Son Tyler won’t be able to join us as was previously planned. He asked me about a month ago what I wanted for my Birthday. My request was no gifts, just for us to go away as a family, where he wasn’t allowed to do any work of any kind.  He works way to much and needs a break worst then any of us.  I can’t explain why he isn’t coming currently,  but he has a very, very good reason. It’s been an interesting summer!  I was bummed to say the least, but I will still get to see him for dinner on my actual birthday.  Anyways, that was more info then you bargained for I am sure!  Today’s card is something I did a few weeks ago.  I hope in the photo you can actually see that I actually did use some vellum. I used my very first Die-cut that I purchased from MFT many years ago, it’s called Leafy Flourish incase you can’t see it very well. It’s a must have for sure!  The background butterflies are from Gina K, the flower is SU, and the sentiment is from Verve.  I was doing emboss resist a few weeks back and was having so much fun that I decided to make another card.  So if the back panel looks somewhat familiar, you know why. Come on over and join us, I know you have some vellum laying around that you are dying to use!

I so appreciate you stopping in to check on me!  Have a great day! Nanc’
