Hey there! It was a beautiful day here yesterday, temps in the 70’s! I worked on some projects but did manage to get out of the house for while. I had lunch with Taylor and ran some errands with my friend Maureen. I even found some time to just sit outside and enjoy the warm weather. Like always seems to be the case around here it was just a taste, today we have temps in the 50’s and some rain later on. Before you know it the nice weather will be here to stay, can’t wait for that!
Today I have three more new members to announce for my Design Team over on the Can You Case It blog. Last week you met Michael and Andrea. This week I’m very happy to introduce you to…

Now on to this week’s Designer’s Choice challenge…
Yes, that’s right, it’s an anything goes week over on the Can You Case It blog! I decided that it was time to use more than just the greeting in the Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer Stamp Set! The base for my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. My background is a piece of Kraft Card Stock that I heat embossed with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It’s adhered to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. The three envelopes and the greeting are from the Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the envelopes in Soft Sky, Blushing Bride and Sahara Sand. They are cut out with my Paper Snips and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My tag is a piece of Very Vanilla and the top is punched with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. The greeting is stamped in Soft Sky. I adhered some DMC Gold Metallic Thread behind the tag which is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Three hearts punched with the Confetti Heart Border Punch from Blushing Bride and three from Gold Foil Sheet are adhered to the tag and the envelopes with pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.I love the soft colors with the cool woodgrain embossed Kraft! I think this would make a great thank you card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Designer’s Choice challenge from Can You Case It as well as meeting the new members to my Design Team! Thank you so much for stopping by and have yourself an awesome Sunday! 🙂
