Live Your Life in Color

Well, so far, this week has gone by way too FAST!  I know a bunch of ya'll's kids are already getting out of school.  The girls' last day is next Thursday, and I know that week will speed by as well.  I'm so ready for them to be home for the summer.  I can't wait to do some fun (and cheap) stuff.  They still love it when I use my "well-worn" Summer Schedule for a little structure in our days.  If you have young kids (or not, mine are 9 and 12), you may want to check out what I came up with so long ago.  Of course, that was before Pinterest (B.P.) and now it's even more fun finding things to do.

Anyway, with thoughts of summer in mind, I wanted to make something bright and vibrant.  I hadn't made anything "rainbow-ey" with my Reverse Confetti DREAM IN COLOR set, so I started with that.  Since it has no "image" stamps, I combined it with my HAPPY HARBOR set and created a fun tag with the pennant stamp.  (Just because it comes in a nautical set, doesn't mean it has to stay that naughty?)  I loved a "tag" card I saw on Pinterest that had the little clothespin holding it onto the twine, so I followed that lead and this card was born.  What do ya'll think?

Say, when are ya'll going to ink up your Reverse Confetti stamps?  SOON, I hope, and when you do, don't forget to link up to the Reverse Confetti Blog HERE, and YOU could be our next 'Fetti Find and ultimately a 'Fetti Fave, winning the ENTIRE next release!  It's SO EASY...check out the simple "how to" on our 'Fetti Find blog post for this week, HERE.

SUSIE Q-TIP:  I love using clear bling or silver brads.  They go with EVERYTHING.  However, I have tons of colored bling as well (don't lie, I'm sure ya'll do too!) that I don't know why, but I don't use as often.  I need to do that and so do ya'll.

  1. Cute Susan, love the tag! My RC stamps have been staring at me since I bought them and I can't wait to get 'em on paper. Somehow, my craft room started an overhaul (not my fault, of course;) I'll definitely share when I get back to it!

    Enjoy your kiddos!!

  2. Terrific card! My fav thus far, using this set. Great, fun design and creative use of multiple products and stamps. Nice work! :)
