Word Art Week ~ Best. Day. Ever.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Welcome to the third day of Word Art Week. If you've missed or indeed would like to see the other cards again, just click on the days... Monday and Tuesday. They will open in another tab.

Before we get to today's card, I'd like to share something special with you... Last Sunday marked six months since I joined Stampin' Up! and today is my ONE HUNDREDTH Stampin' Up! blog post! Both of them are something worth celebrating and I can honestly say that joining SU was one of my Best. Days. Ever.

I'd like to dedicate today's card, created appropriately with the Best Day Ever stamp set that's available FREE during Sale-A-Bration when you spend £45 or more, to my amazing upline, Vicky and all our Inkredibles and Pinkie sisters. Each of them and indeed all of you have been incredibly supportive over the last six months. THANK YOU!

Card: Coastal Cabana and Irresistibly Yours DSP (another S-A-B choice, panel and snippets)
Ink: Jet Black StazOn and Pool Party
Markers: Bermuda Bay Blendabilities
Stamp Sets: Best Day Ever and Petite Petals
Tools: Petite Petals punch, Corner Rounder punch, Stamping Sponges, Mini Glue Dots and Basics Rhinestones

Cut and fold Coastal Cabana card base and round corners as shown, if desired.
Cut piece of Irresistibly Yours (I cut mine ¼" smaller than the base). Round the corners and sponge all over with Pool Party ink. Remove any excess ink from embossing by gently wiping with a tissue.
Stamp sentiment from Best Day Ever in Jet Black StazOn (other inks wouldn't cover the embossing). Attach to base card.
Stamp the flower from Petite Petals in StazOn onto an offcut of the DSP and color with Bermuda Bay blendies (I kept mine one shade). Punch out with the matching punch and attach to card using Mini Glue Dots.
Complete the design by adding Basics Rhinestones to flower centers and over periods in sentiment.

I LOVE the card. I LOVE my Stampin' sisters and I LOVE all of you! Thanks for sharing this incredible journey with me!
