Thoughtful Friends

Hello! Happy Tuesday! I have a cute new card for today so I will get right to it. I played with the Mojo Monday #90 sketch last night and really like my results. Here ya go...

The papers I used are from the My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow collection. This is a group that I hated when it first came out and seeing it used made it grow on me. I am not a big fan of orange at all. It might just be my least favorite color of all time. I try to never use it on cards or even wear it. This card pleases me though. Maybe I will try to incorporate it in my work more often.

As for the rest of my card, there is no stamping or coloring on it. Can you believe it? For the sentiment, I picked a quote from my overstuffed idea journal and printed it on my computer. I used a textured cardstock to print on (which I rarely do) and I like the effect. I was worried the grain of the paper was too bumpy but it was just fine. The unique little button was a fab find at a local textile outlet. Some of my coolest button treasures came from that place! I think everything else speaks for itself. I will list my supplies below though.

Have a wonderful day! I hope your summer is shaping up to be fabulous. Ours is settling in ever so slightly. I am still catching up from vacation but I am totally hooked on sleeping late. Ahhhh...

Papers- DCWV Lake CS; MME Bloom & Grow Little Blossom and Spring in Bloom; orange from my stash?. Tools- SU scalloped circle punch; EK 1 1/2in circle punch. Embellishments- prima flowers; misc button. Font- Girls are Weird 24pt bold.


  1. Wow I love the color palette and your attention to detail rocks! BR-T

  2. Great card Kyla! I had to click on it to see the textured paper you used for your sentiment. It looks very cool and I love the font you used. I'm actually starting to like orange now that I've been seeing it on cards combined with pink or other pastels. What do you do at Halloween if you don't use orange???
