Happy Victoria Day!

I don't know about you, but we are "enjoying" a very rainy long weekend. At least it makes it easier to get work done inside if it's not nice outside. I just hope it clears up in time for our picnic with Andrea & fam this evening!

Speaking of Andrea, here is a card I made for her to thank her for taking me shopping & out for lunch on my birhtday.

I'm loving my new clear stamps from My Favorite Things and also Paper Trey.

See the scallops on the card? My awesome SU Demo, Sarah, showed this on her blog and I'd never seen it before. You just punch out a bunch of circles using a circle punch and adhere them to the back of your layer. I used a ruler to make a line and then put a strip of tape along the edge and stuck the circles on. It's a pretty easy way to make scallops!
