the *MUSE* returns!

after making several consecutive cards (in a ROW, lol!) which featured neither a papaya muse sticker, nor even a tiny bit of amy tangerine paper, the separation anxiety has become too great for me, so here they both are, back with a vengeance! a bright pink, doily encrusted vengeance... which is quite obviously the best kind!!! :)

(patterned paper: amy tangerine; "muse" sticker: payapya; floral: prima; floral fabric tape: love my tapes; glossy white cardstock: ranger; sparkly star stickers: michaels; other: cupcake cut from magazine ad, vintage doily; adhesives: 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)

i've used this week's retrosketch (#20) which you will definitely be seeing again--i've already printed it out to put in my inspiration notebook!

speaking of that fabulous challenge site, i was VERY excited and totally honored to have gotten a shout out from those talented ladies for my "sunshiny day" card, and i thank them most heartily!

you'll have noticed this card boasts yet ANOTHER of the fabulous deco tapes i got from the love my tapes booth at scrapbook expo. this one *might* be my favorite, because for one thing, it's fabric... which just adds so much lovely texture; plus, at 1.25" it's wider than the average tape which i really like! (if i could change ONE thing about this amazingly wonderful tape craze... 90% of them are 5/8"... i'd love to see more variety of widths, wouldn't you?! but i digress...) i threw in a few glittery star stickers, as well to be able to sneak another card into love my tapes' july challenge!

and that's about it for me at the moment, i have a super-duper layery ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ card to show you tomorrow, so i'll sign off until then, darlings! ♥
