Elements of style

Good Saturday Morning and Happy National Donut Day to you all!  Today I think is my Mom's favorite day.  For some reason she's been hooked on donuts lately and today is a fitting day for her.  I told her that I'd take her to the bakery this morning but she said no she bought a box yesterday at the store ~ I think it was because she wanted to sleep in.  Me however, I was up at 6:00 this morning and hubby and I had a little time to ourselves.  We went fishing.  This weekend is free fishing weekend here in Kentucky and we thought we'd take our chance at it.  I caught 2 fish, 1 turtle and countless crawdads.  The turtle I named Tony and the 1st crawdad was Carl.  And yes, they all went back into the water.  Of course after I've watched the marathon last weekend of River Monsters I was a little leary of reeling in the line.  But we enjoyed ourselves - time we don't get too much alone together.

I'm sure that your tired of the blah blah blah, huh?  How about getting down to a card?  Ok, let's go...

This past Wednesday I noticed on SCS that the tutorial was for a center step card.  Well I did complete one back in February with a set of gals who I met - they are a great bunch.  I never posted it so better late than never I say!
The base card is Chocolate Chip that I layered with Certainly Celery and Rose Red.  The images are stamped from the Elements of Style stamp set - this is one of my GO TO stamp sets.  I just love it, and it's so versatile you can use it for so much. 
See the card up close, I sprayed it with glimmer mist.  I also used some of the Frost White Shimmer paint from SU! to highlight certain areas. 
With a card front so pretty I had to finish off the inside too. I used my Little Leaves sizzlits to cut out the leaves and my Beautiful Wings die to cut out the butterflies.   

So what do you think?  Pretty, huh?  I think that it is a very feminine card.

So that's what I have for you today.  I need to go make a graduation card ~ Danielle's boyfriend is graduating today.  I got roped into it because Danielle had to work.  She's funny, I think that sometimes she takes advantage of the situation.  It's "hey Mom, it's so-and-so's birthday I need a card".  Not "can you make a card?"  Hmmm, maybe I should charge her??

Have a great day everyone!
