So many of my daily conversations start with "My neighbor, Pam....." so really, it only seems right to start this post out like that. I am sooooooo blessed to have her and her husband for neighbors. They are so kind, supportive, generous, funny, and loving that the kids and I both know we have won the neighbor jackpot! Well. Except for the time we took Pam camping, and tried to convince her she was enjoying it. A bout of near death stomach flu, and one verrry long car ride home, and for a few moments BOTH kids would have traded her in for the neighbor with the 12 foot fence, 10 rusted cars on his front lawn, and a "NO KIDS ALLOWED" sign duct taped to the rotten old apple tree on the boulevard. ;o)
Anyway....my neighbor, Pam, needed a wedding card for a friend, so she came over and created this masterpiece! It started out much differently in our heads than it ended up. I wanted her to do a monotone card so she could enter it into the Finally Friday challenge (click here to see the deets and enter your own project http://spcolorcombos.blogspot.com/2009/08/finally-friday.html ), and had seen a beautiful card (sorry, I wish I remember where so I could link to it) embellished with punched flowers in a heart shape. Well, my flower punch decided to not work, my Slice decided to not work, and I was getting frustrated! Pam whips out the SU! Heart Punch, and starts working away. She popped up a square on the card, then taped a single layer of hearts down, then the next layer popped up. Add some bling, and a ribbon, and Voila! An absolutely gorgeous card she can be proud to give away!
Ingredients (all SU! unless otherwise noted):
Very Vanilla CS and 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Heart Punch, tape and pop dots from Dollarama, gems from Michaels.
