monday, monday....

Here we are again...back to Monday.

I made this card for Ashley's birthday;D I used my new set from Verve. I am having a lot of fun with this one! I was glad to get a few minutes over the weekend in my stamp room. While reading Tracy's blog the other day, she used this color scheme: Regal Rose/Pretty in Pink/Whisper White/Sage Shadow. I really like these colors together, so soft and pretty.

I hope you all had a great weekend. My just flew by! Friday I finally used my new shopping bags from Envirosax I wasn't sure how I would like them...but I am happy to report I LOVE THEM!!! I got double the stuff inside the bag and they are very durable so you can really load them up (the check out girl even said they were cool). I think I am going to get another set, since I did need to use some of the plastic bags.

Saturday night we went to Benihana to celebrate Ashley's birthday. We had a lot of fun;D and ate way too much. Then we came back home for some cake and presents. I think it was a success. I posted a fun picture from the restaurant of the birthday girl...she is crazy!

I tried to take some of the pictures with the aperture setting (I am weaning myself off auto, lol!). I am happy to say, this one was not on auto! After I cropped and added some photo actions (just found out about these and love them!). I was happy with the end result. Now I just need to get motivated to do some scrapping!

Enjoy your day! Thanks for visiting!!

Supplies used (all SU! unless noted): Petals & Stems (Verve)/Papertrey (PTI); Regal Rose/Whisper White/Pretty in Pink/ Sage Shadow cardstock; Pretty in Pink/Regal Rose/Sage Shadow ink; Square Punches; Pink Grosgrain Ribbon (Michael's)

Another great card using your new Verve set! I love those bags....I am working very hard to stop using plastic bags. I'm getting better, sometimes I still leave my new reusable bags in the car when I go into Walmart! :) Julie
