Try Stampin'... or NOT!

Here is my card for Try Stampin' On Tuesday:

I love this sketch!

And I LOVE the way this turned out. I absolutely love this card.  It is very simple, but there is something about it that I love!  It is very "me."  As I was making it, it was my Friday (Thursday), and I was having a cocktail in the shack, listening to Pandora's Modest Mouse Radio... and awesome old songs kept coming on!  Anyway, it was just about ideal.  Then my kids got back from basketball and came in and started talking to me about their lives. We had a great conversation about boys and friends-- well, my older was doing the talking, and my younger was doing what she does when the older talks about boys!  Haha.  Anyway, it was a great night to make a great card. 

Supplies and notes:
  • Glitz DP
  • Studio Calico stars
  • Perfect Pearls mist in gold-- I had accidentally oversprayed a kraft card during another project... turned out perfect on this!
  • And you know I am not "sentiment-al"... I can always do without a sentiment, and this is no exception.  I almost thought about adding a Tim Holtz basic "Thank You," but... nope.


  1. This is a type of sketch I would normally love to give a go, but I haven't gotten into my normal crafting shape yet after the holidays. Love what you did with it:)

  2. Again, these stars are fabulous! I almost bought curtains just like this DP this weekend, but remembered I was broke... Boo! Love your fun, carefree style, Mimi!

  3. Hi Mimi, I love how you took our sketch and incorporated even the star elements! It's clean and simple and works great Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday! Crystal

  4. This is a great CAS card, Mimi! Don't you just love it when a card turns out and it's just what you were thinking! I know I do. Thanks for sharing with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday.
