Love You, Friend

Hi there!

Geez, I can't believe it's been almost two weeks since I posted last. Chalk it up to work, life in general and wanting to be outside as much as possible in the short, summer months of Minnesota!


I've been wanting to play along with the new, Mixed Media Monthly challenge blog since they posted their first challenge in the beginning of this month, and I am so glad it's a month-long challenge or I would have missed it!

I really need to use sprays more often. This Mister Huey's, Dewey Color Mist sure sprays on beautifully! I used the Hero Arts/Basic Grey, Leaf and Flourish Stencil - such a pretty design!


I pulled out some sparkly hearts and added a strip from the same silvery glitter paper. I added some vellum to act as a base for my Simon Says Stamp tag die-cut, love you die-cut and friend sentiment. A little bit of string and a white enamel dot finishes it off.

I'm heading outside again - even though it's a hot, humid day. We've had so much rain the last couple of weeks and more is coming today, so I need to enjoy the sunshine before the clouds move in. 

I hope your week is off to a good start! Thanks for stopping by!

This is a beautiful card Barb! I really like the colors and how you arranged all the different elements! Those glitter hearts are FAB and I love how you added the string. Thanks so much for playing in our first Mixed Media Monthly Challenge!!! Enjoy your time outside - it's already too hot here for me - upper 90's all week!

I totally agree with you, Barb! Summer's just fly by and there is just too much to do outside rather than be cooped up inside!

Your card is so fabulous! I love the color of the spray and those glitter hearts are so sweet. Good job with the mixed media!

I think it is funny that you say the summer is flying by!! School was done yesterday so my first day off was today. My summer just started!!

I LOVE your card. The colors are so soft and pretty and I LOVE the little touches of silver on your card. Beautiful!!

Barb I love your card, the soft colour of that mist is gorgeous. As soon as I saw youru card I remembered that I have that stencil and I can't find it anywhere! Oh little brain of mine where did you hide it!

Hello Barb,
Firstly, thank you for the kind words re Rob. I have to say you have sprayed this stencil beautifully, it has made for a card that grabs the eye, the added tag as the element is just perfect.
Smiles:)
