World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop

Happy World Cardmaking Day!!! Welcome to an A*Muse Studio Blog Hop celebrating the occasion!!! We've been having big fun making cards to celebrate! I decided to make a fun black and pink polka dotty card. I love polka dots and black and pink is one of my favorite color combos. Here are the A*Muse Studio products that I used on a fun friendship card!

Now, I should stop here and apologize for the photos. It is close to midnight and I am at my sister's house. She is recovering from surgery so I'm helping my mom take care of the kiddos so my bro-in-law can keep farming and help take care of my sis. :) My sweet, little and youngest, adorable nephew threw up all over me and the rocking chair about an hour ago. Since then I have been cleaning chairs and carpet and washing clothes and having a wonderful time. :) OK - perhaps there is a touch bit of sarcasm in the last part but my nephew is a sweetheart and he can't help it his tummy hurt. However, with the added complications, I had to finish my card quickly and get some pics taken and uploaded so please forgive the photo quality. The card does look better in person. :)

 Tini Time is a super fun set. You can use it for cosmos and celebrating the love of fun cocktail drinks. Or, you can turn the glass into a hanging light or a table or other fun things!
Check out a close up of the image and layers of the fabulous onyx, onyx polka dot and bubblegum polka dot papers. They're layered on A*Muse Studio Vanilla as their polka dots have a cream tinge. So pretty! And, check it out - the Sakura quickie glue pen makes it easy to add some bubblegum glitter to the image. A "sugar" rim was added to the cocktail glass and a glittery border to the sentiment. The sentiment is popped up over the glass image. And, check out that fabulous polka dot organdy ribbon - adds such a cute touch to the card. Oh, and before I forget the onyx (black) layer of paper has been spritzed with the stardust finishing spray so it has a wonderful shimmery look.

Finally, check out the inside of the card. Pink and polka dotty and fun! Hope you've enjoyed a splash of Tini Time and I hope you continue on to Pamela Frederickson's blog for more hopping fun!! The full blogging list is below:
