In Mint Condition!



Just for Fun!
I've had time lately to just color and make cards that aren't for DT's , customers, or even for me to send to friends and family. It's fun to do that on ocassion!
SU! discontinued their color called Mint Melody a few years ago, but I still have some sheets left. It was never a favorite color, but lately I seem to be using it a  lot.  I like it with some of the other SU! colors like Tempting Turquoise and Cool Caribbean.



This is a vintage image from Digital Two for Tuesday. She has some really pretty images from days gone by. She was reaching for butterflies in the image, but they were cut off when I used the Nesties.


Tools: Cuttlebug with Nestie circle, and Marianne swirl die, Martha Stewart Bird and Lace border punches, Tacky Tape

Papers: SU! Mint Melody & Barely Banana, Gold metallic, Neenah smooth white,  Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Ruffled lace, Ribbon slot lace, Satin ribbon, Small roses and buds from WOC, Two sizes of pearl cabochons, Metallic gold doily

Beach Glass


This didn't turn out the way I had intended, but I'm sure someone will buy it  anyway! LOL!'
I do like the beads, though.  They look worn and hazy......just  like beach glass.

The inside says, " ...to play every day!"

Images:"Sand Castle" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment (?)

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with Label Nesties and embossing folder, Oval punches, Diamond Glaze

Papers: SU! Mint Melody, Tempting Turquoise, Not Quite Navy, Neenah smooth white

Embellishments: Glass beads, Real and plastic shells, Printed grosgrain ribbon, Shell bad, Flower Soft

Glad you stopped by!
