Hello There!

Good afternoon/evening friends and happy Tuesday! I hope that you are doing well...we are enjoying a record number of Otter Pops and frozen anything this week...we're having super warm-95ish degrees--and can't belive how thankful I am for my A/C! We've been really thankful these last several days that we can find releif from the heat!! My baby has been eating her weight in Otter Pops...so much fun!

I got a fun little bit of joy in the mailbox yesterday...the new LAD Monthly Mix for September! The mix is called "Treasured Trinkets" and it's delicous and full of great images...you can see a preview of the whole mix on the LAD blog here.

I loved this leaf image and decided to break it in first. I used some River Rock cardstock for my card and stamped the image in River Rock ink and stamped it over and over again to make my backgound. The I stamped the leaf image onto white cardstock and used my square punches to add a little Soft Suede scallop and then mounted them onto River Rock again.

I laid a strip of Soft Suede down, added my squares and then decided to add a few little pretties--pearls were a perfect choice! My Soft Suede ribbon tied around the card and then my "Hello There" sentiment was stamped with Soft Suede ink.

I'm excited to have more time to play with this mix...it's a goodie!! Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great evening!! Make it great!
