TAWS card

It's been quite some time since I've played along with the BE Inspired Challenge over at TAWS. The Alley Way makes great stamps and the BIC always has bright, fun, and interesting inspiration photos packed with tons of ideas. I needed a card for a special friend, and right away I knew exactly which stamp would be the perfect focal point for this card. Then I popped over to BIC, and the colors and inspiration was (if you'll pardon my pun...) right up my Alley! (sorry...well...maybe not....heehee) Scope out the photo:



Some of my most favorite colors ever, and I just had to utilize that garland on my card.


These glasses are one of my all time favorite stamps -- they just scream fun, don't you think?!! Really simple to make. Started with a Recollections base, a scrap of the same for the image and sentiment, and a scrap of blue cardstock. Some SC and Michaels sequins for my garland, and of course The Alley Way Stamps for both the image and sentiment. I colored the glasses with a Copic marker, and added two orange blings. I enjoyed making this, and hope that the recipient will like it too. Happy dances everyone.

Right off the hop....WINNER, WINNER!!!

These glasses are totally the cat's pajamas! So funky/retro - especially with the two corner blings! Cool garland of sequins and the absolute perfect spot for the sentiment!

BTW - I had a very similar pair way back when, complete with the bedazzled temples!

Miss Bev, this is just so you! From start to finish a wonderful Bev/Happy Dance card. I too have those stamps and the glasses are the cutest. Good luck and I have to agree with Geri, this is a winner.

Eye adore this card. It is jam-packed with fun, Bev. I love BIC's inspiration photos too. After the turquoise truck (if I lived in the US I could own that) knocked my socks off, the garland wrapped itself around my brain and wouldn't let go. You have captured both fabulously. Better be a winner.

Hello, Babe! This honey girl LOVES your fun card and lemme tell you, it is even more adorable IRL!! I'd say it is not only a winner for the challenge, it was the perfect cheer-up card for someone with eyeball troubles! Eye adore you, too, and thank you! Mwah! Darnell

I LOVE those glasses - they must be somewhere near the back of my stamp drawer because I forgot all about them and they don't deserve to be forgotten. You have shown them off beautifully with just some fun strands of sequins.

OH, Bev, what an adorably SWEET & FUN card this is! Everything about it makes me smile. Love it!

My computer has crashed, once again. I have access to my dear husband's "personal" work computer. I asked him to bring it home tonight...so I could visit a few blogs. :-)

HUGS!
