I will choose a winner Tuesday, January 4th 2010!
I am thrilled to be able to announce that I am EAD Designs guest designer during the month of January! I'm so excited! Every Monday in January, I will feature a project using some of their amazing products! For today's blog hop, the theme is "Just Beachy!" I used the Dandelion Vinyl Rub-ons set. I have never used anything like these rub-ons before, and I am so happy to tell you that they are soo so easy to use!
At first glance, my card may not scream "beach-y," but stay with me for a minute. When I think of the beach, I think of the colors - sandy brown, golden yellow and varying shades of blue. Also...after my last beach experience in October - I think of bugs. Our first day at the beach was perfect - perfect temperature, practically empty, and bug-free. The next day the temperature was perfect, we had the beach to ourselves, but there were THOUSANDS (seriously) of little flying bugs. While the rest of my family was annoyed by the bugs, I couldn't handle it. Once the bugs started landing in my hair and face, I kind of lost it. Needless to say, the rest of my family thought it was pretty hilarious.
|I decided to do a bit different of a card fold, since the overall design was pretty simple.|
