Wow..it's been a week!

I can't believe it's been a week since I posted. Now that I look back it was a very busy week and I didn't feel good a few days so I guess I'll cut myself some slack. I do have some fun projects I've been working on so I know I can fill a few days this week with those. Here's a card I created using my new comforter for inspiration! That's part of why my week was so busy last week, I did a ton of "spring cleaning" and outfitted our bedroom with some new furnishings. See the comforter below.

When I saw it, for some reason I just fell in love with it. When I got up yesterday morning, I grabbed my pencil and pad and sketched it out because it dawned on me that the pattern was perfect for a card! I had the set Puns from the Past from the minute it came out in the Fall/Winter catalog but I hadn't used it. As soon as I got through with the sketch, I knew this set would be perfect for it!

Stamp set: Puns from the Past
Paper: Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White Craft

Easy peasy card, and I love the way it turned out! I may have to try another one today using a different color palette! Enjoy your Sunday everyone!
