Don't You Think It's About Time??!!

I mean, after all, it's been almost 2 weeks since I last posted a card! The only problem is, that seems to be the last time a sat down and relaxed to make a card!!!!! I had stamp camp last Sunday and it was VERY successful. Lots of work went into it so I had to get caught up on things.

Next Sunday I am meeting up with a group of friends for a shoebox swap. There is going to be lots of good food, plenty of laughs, and even some stamping going on. We got together last year and begged the same hostesses to have it again. After all, she's the gourmet cook of the group so why not!!!!

I found the idea for this card on someone's blog and for the life of me can't remember who. I really should write it down so I give credit where credit is due. The card base and some layers are Chocolate chip along with layers of Barely banana. The Bliss blue embossed layer is sponged over with White craft ink - love the effect. The DP is by Fancy Pants. The flowers I colored in with marker (saffron and celery) then rocked the edges with Close to cocoa ink. The ribbon slide comes from the new Silver Hodgepodge Hardware kit found in the new Occasions mini catalog. The stamp sets are Close as a Memory and Define Your Life. Hope the other ladies enjoy making it too.
