The most beautiful things

Nah, not my card....the quote stamp I used for it:
I got this stamp (by Kaiser) at a little shop up the road...you know, one of those stores that has a bit of everything. Anyway, I thought this quote was lovely and I finally inked it up to use on this card. The base is some Bazzil that came in a Lime Tart kit, along with that gorgeous Basic Grey Urban Prairie DP...I love that line of DP and I'm in the middle of making a little mini book with it :) The green lace paper is the same one from the last LT kit, the flowers are Prima, the button American Crafts and the ribbon is SU Pretty in Pink. The quote was stamped in Ruby Red on Pretty in Pink {yes Lauren I am LOVING that colour combo right now} and layered onto some lime-ish Bazzil.

Right now I'm waiting for the parcel man to deliver my pre-order from the Summer mini, so that I can stay up late tonight and get all my swap cards finished....oh yeah, I have to actually design them first!!!!

Finally, thanks for all the sympathy and suggestions re: the annoying phone junkie housemate. Part of the problem is that I have a cordless phone in my room so that SHE can't use it and wreck the battery like she did on the last one I had! SHE was supposed to get her own cordless....for the last 3 months she's been putting it off...because clearly it's more important to buy dresses that cost $100 rather than a $40 cordless phone! So, there's not really a whole lot I can do at the moment. Luckily I shall be leaving for Queensland in 2 weeks and I won't have to put up with it for a whole month! And thankfully she started a new job today, so at least during the day I'm back to some peace and quiet to work in....and speaking of which I better get back to it :)

Have a great Monday {if that's possible???},

It still freaks me out that it is 9:00 pm Sunday night here and your post says Monday.

Your card reminds me of the preppy green and pink, both too bright to appear in one of my cards, but I applaud your use of them. ;-) I just trolled the Web and found this site: http://www.preppygirlgifts.com/catalog.php?item=84, and OMG, even the scroll bar is green and pink! LOL!

I purchased a sheet of that green lace cs because of your cards, but I'm afraid to cut it up :)

I'm glad your house mate got a job. Maybe you can buy her a cordless for Christmas. It is easy to hide from her, AND easier to accidentally throw at her (LOL).

Love that PP and your card...love it :)
