a card that ALMOST works... almost...

it's sort of a weird combination of random accoutrements. now don't get me wrong...i like weird...and random...i'm just not sure this makes sense.

(patterned paper: reminisce, karen foster, october afternoon; cardstock elements: cosmo cricket; glossy black cardstock: ranger; photo diecut: paper house productions; font: body hunter (printed on staples' photo paper); adhesives: tombow mono runner, 3m foam tape; other: ek success circle punch, sewing machine)

having said that, i did send it anyway. i mean heck, it's a handmade card, it's got a rather fab cupcake on it, and i'm utterly confident that my brother-in-law will not have received two of these! besides, making sense is SO "twentieth century" isn't it?!

♥happy tuesday, darlings!♥


  1. what's NOT to love about your fabbie-licious card?!

  2. so fun!! love the fab cupcake...love the fab card!

  3. I love your card Lauren It`s delish!!!!

    `Thankyou` `Thankyou` for the gorgeous Laureny Christmas card!!!!You `Rock`

  4. Hey, Lauren! This is perfectly masculine, and who wouldn't want THAT cupcake? The card makes sense to me. You have always been trendy (actually ahead of your time) and tres cool. This card is an excellent example of your mega talent.


  5. I love the card though I agree there is something slightly off. Maybe the tape measure making the flow of the line go vertical when the arrow and title make it go horizontal. Those two conflicting would be hard on the eye. If the tape measure was under the title just poking out it would probably flow a little better. Maybe???

    Love that cupcake. Rockin' the Body Hunter!!

  6. well *I* like it, as i'm a fan of the mixed media. your brudda-in-lo is going to love it, too. i'm certain.

    if not, i make a voodoo doll of him?

  7. It so works! Totally fun and quirky...and I like that!
