Check Your Banana Bread ...

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, race fans!

Today's card project was created for my "someone's-taking-a-trip-to-Paris" card stash. I kid. I never send cards to anyone when they're taking a trip to Paris ... they've already received the best. gift. ever!

When I do use this, I'll add a l'il tag to the button with an appropriate sentiment:

I stamped my focal image in SU's Chocolate Chip dye ink, double matted it, and added a couple of lengths of handmade vintage lace. The last in my stash.

A vintage button threaded with beading twine is all the embellishment I used. This simple card would even work for the Dreaded Man-Card. Best of all, it's easy-peasy and ready to serve in just 15 Minutes!

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

Sooooooooo, yesterday when I stopped by Sheila's for a quick second, she was baking banana bread.

"Ummm, that smells done, Sheila." I suggested ... 'cuz I bake by smell. You too?

Sheila answered that she had set the timer, and it was 'just fine, thank you very much.'

About 10 minutes later, I again said, "Sheila, I hate to tell you what to do in your own kitchen, but I really think that you should check your banana bread."

At that moment, Reid-the-Wild-Child piped up: "Aunty, Mommy has been burning that banana bread since I was little. I think she knows when to take it out."

Thanks for stopping by ... have a great day!

Your Paris card has a modern/vintage thing going on which I love. Banana cake gets taken out of the oven too soon in our house because we can't wait to get our greedy paws on it!
