Well, it's been a tough week with my dad passing away on Sunday. Luckily, he had most of the arrangements already in place so that my sisters and I could take care of everything from down here in Texas since he's in Illinois. It's been a huge blessing and I hope to be able to do that for our kids someday. Thanks for everyone's kind messages of support on Facebook and beyond. They've helped tremendously!
PINEAPPLES APLENTY from REVERSE CONFETTI and put this quick little guy together!
Apparently in my world, pineapples can be blue. I just had this brilliant blue pineapple with gold leaves pictured in my head, so I went with it (funny how blue was my dad's favorite color and I made this the day before he passed)! I stamped and cut the pineapple and leaves out with the PINEAPPLES APLENTY Confetti Cuts, popping up an extra set of leaves for dimension. I then made a frame using the LOVE NOTE and CLASS ACT Confetti Cuts dies. I lined it all up, marking my card base lightly with a pencil where the opening of the frame would be before attaching the frame. Then I stamped the sweet saying from the POSTED NOTE SENTIMENT set and finished putting the card together. It was so quick! I think this little layout would be fun to make several in different colors with several different sentiments.
