It's Time to Relax!

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Happy Wednesday everyone! I wanted to show you my latest card. This one is simply titled - "Relax".

I made this one for a teacher friend of mine. Teachers are under so much stress these days. Thank God we have some time off next week for Thanksgiving. We need it and DESERVE IT!

I got to play with a fun stamp set after winning it from Erin Schlosser and her company Schlosser Designs. Thank you Erin! I have had so much fun playing with them. The chair & the "relax" sentiment are from the "Furnishing Fun" stamp set.

I love to draw from inspiration for my cards.
The inspiration for this one came from the Etsy Inspired Challenge and Happy Day Designs.

I love this Bold Red necklace from their shop!

I added other fun elements to the card.
I really like the red glittered bird, the pom trim, and the stick pens.

I hope you all take some time to "Relax" next week during the Thanksgiving Holiday! ;-)
Card Supplies:
Kraft Cardstock - Bazzill; Patterned Paper - from stash ; Stamp - Schlosser Designs: Furnishing Fun; Glitter Chipboard Bird - My Mind's Eye: I Believe; Pom trim - My Mind's Eye; Stick Pins - Jillibean Soup: Sugar Picks; Ribbon - Celebrate It; Ink - Stampin Up
