Play Date Cafe Challenge #42 & Fall To Layout #103
I wasn't very productive today. I had every intention to be productive! Alarm was set for 9:00 AM and Jamie even came to wake me up at 9:30 but then I convinced him (wasn't hard) to nap with me till 10:00. He eventually got up at 11 or 11:30 and I woke my lazy butt up at 1:00 PM!!! Jamie asked what I wanted for breakfast and so I asked him what he wanted and he goes "Well it'd be lunch for me." Ouch. Anyways, I managed to muster up a card today. The photo is the inspiration from the Play Date Cafe Challenge and I paired it up with Clean & Simple's Fall To Layout sketch 103. I got to use some patterned paper for the No paper/product buying challenge and you get a sneak peak of a stamp set that will be available in September from the new winter mini catalogue! Don't be upset with the very Autumn looking card. I swear fall is here already because Jamie and I already saw yellow leaves on some trees on our dog walks.
The leaves are from the new stamp set French Foliage and the sentiment is from a retired hostess set Flower Lines. I wanted the patterned paper to show through so I used some vellum and got to try out my new Scrapbook Adhesives vellum adhesive. Not too bad but it does tend to clump a bit at the start and end. You can see a little blip of it on the top left corner. The rest is still pretty invisible so I'm happy with it. Worth the $8. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip taffeta and I'm in absolute love with it! The sheen it has is so gorgeous in person. Hope you all had a great weekend!
