Time Flies!

Wow, it's already Wednesday today. Where does the time go? Thankfully, my blah mood only lasted through Monday and I woke up on Tuesday raring to go. This morning I was up at 6:15am, working on a baked from scratch batch of Lemon Bars to take into the office with me. My reputation as a baker is becoming known throughout the office and while I was there last week, for our quarterly meetings, it was requested that I bring Lemon Bars. Mmmmm, they were good! Nothing like homemade Lemon Bars made with fresh lemon juice and zest. Beats a box recipe any day!

For this card, I was just playing around with some stuff and pulled these together pretty quickly. I think I am addicted to the tinplate notecards. Seems like I can't stop using them; especially the Blue Raspberry and Kiwi. I stamped the Horseshoes using Stampin Up's Really Rust, then outlined it with a gold Spica atyou glitter pen. The retro background was stamped with VersaMagic Cornucopia. I layered the whole thing on a piece of French Roast (A Muse) notecard and then trimmed it with some pinking decorative scissors. I added some French Roast stitched grossgrain ribbon and it completed the card quite nicely.

A big shout out to Lexi Daly for her recent publication in the latest Paper Crafts magazine. She's got a fabulous card using this same tinplate notecard! You can see Lexi's fabulous creations on her blog and throughout the gallery over at The Saltbox Studio. You go, girl!!!
