An Absolutely Fabulous Foursome ...

Pin It

Happy Monday, stampers ... hope your holiday weekend was safe and happy!

Today's card project was created for no-good reason using this vintage-inspired collage style stamp from Diva Impressions.

I added some sanded vintage-style photo corners, some Stampin' Up! twine and ribbon, and a cute l'il sentiment from Papertrey Ink.

For all the mesmerizing product info, check out the supply list, below.

Sooooooo, this weekend Sheila and I went downtown to do some window shopping. After driving around for 15 minutes, we decided to go park in the expensive-but-convenient parking garage.

Our bad luck continued as we ended up driving around and around the garage in search of an available space. Nothing. Suddenly, Sheila noticed a couple walking just ahead of us.

"Going out?" she called to them.

"No," replied the man, "just friends."

Well, dang, I love cards that are made for no good reason, especially when the sentiment reads "absolutely fabulous"! Which is what this is!
