Mer Ian Inkin' of You Card

I have to warn you all up front, my postings for this week may come at weird times. I'm going to try and keep pace with TGF CHA Relay Race. I'm naturally a planner...as I make ALL my cards for the week and I plan and schedule all my posts. So obviously this relay race has left me a little anxious, lol.

Well, I started with Club Anya and Friends Sketch #3. But then I thought a scalloped edge would be too girly. And I didn't want to put Ian into a heart shape. So I settled and added a little heart after. I always try to make my guy cards a little less frilly, since I can get carried away with flowers, ribbon, and glitter. :)

Paper: My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow
Stamps: The Greeting Farm, sentiment is AmyR
PTI Ribbon, Nestabilties, Copics, Crystal Stickes, and PTI Buttons


Everyone have a fabulous Monday. It's back to work for me...and can't wait for the Bachelor!
