Cherished (MME#27, PDCC #100)

Hello everyone!  Hope you all had a great summer and are having a super weekend so far!  Thanks for all the great supportive comments I've been getting.  I really appreciate them!  They really make my day. :)  I am really going to try and put this blog up higher on my priority list.  It's always the first thing to go when I'm busy or I don't feel well and I'm going to try and change that.  You all deserve better from me when you take the time to check in and especially when you are a follower, which I totally appreciate.  I always get super excited when I have a new follower so I need to do better for you, but I do appreciate your understanding about my health.  Now for the details about the card...

I used almost all products solely from My Mind's Eye.  The exceptions to this were: buttons from my stash, cardstock from PTI, and the scallop border punch from Fiskars.  I used MME Lime Twist and Lost and Found Two patterned paper collections.  The sticker was from the Stella and Rose collection.  I am in love with all three of these collections.  They happen to be my faves that MME has ever put out!  I think that Lost and Found Two is currently my fave.  It seems that I love each collection more and more, if that's possible?!

MME #27

My card is based on the sketch this week at the My Mind's Eye blog.  I followed the sketch to the letter this time.  If you decide to play along over at their blog the only rule is that your project needs to use 80% MME product.  This was easy for me because did I mention I have a lot of MME patterned paper?  This was a fun sketch that I really enjoyed.

The colors in my card are based on this week's color story at The Play Date Cafe.  I have trouble when there are more than three or four colors in a color story, so this one was really fun! :)  I have more ideas for this color story so don't be surprised if you see another card for the PDCC this week.  I hope you enjoyed my card for today!  Have a great rest of your weekend! 

Happy Crafting!

  3. Rachael, this is fantastic! Love that sketch, and the background paper you picked. Thanks for playing along with us at The Play Date CAfe this week!

  4. That newspaper background looks so great with the colorful strips. A great simple card. Thanks for playing along at The Play Date Cafe this week.

  5. Love the print background and those paper strips show another way to use scraps or small pieces of left over patterned paper .
