Use Your Initials


Hello, Over at Seize the Birthday we have a brand new Topping starting today. Glenda is our wonderful hostess and she has a fun one for us. What she wants us to do is use one of our initials to inspire us. I was a bit overzealous or didn’t read the fine print very well and I used all three of my initials on my card. LOL Some of my fellow DT members used one initial, or two initials and a few of us used all three.

My initials are; NEL. So I used Neon, Embossing, and Love on my card. I thought it was so much fun and hope you will too. Thanks, Glenda, for thinking outside the box on this one. I certainly enjoyed it.

Card Details: The heart and scalloped rectangles are from MFT, and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The Tiny envelopes and flowers are from Spellbinders and in the Parcel and Post Mailbox Dies linked below. The EF is from Cuttlebug. I used some black Nuvo drops as well.

Happy Creating, Nanc’
