Kinda Beautiful

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!

I hope you had a great weekend? My week off from the blog flew by and I was able to get a lot of other things done. That said, I feel refreshed and the weather is finally looking and indeed feeling like spring now. You could say it's a kinda beautiful day.

My first card since my bloggy vacation is a kinda beautiful card, created with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set and Beautiful Wings embosslit from Stampin' Up! Yep, there's triple meaning to today's post title...

Card: Basic Black, Whisper White and a snippet of Crisp Cantaloupe
Ink: Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe
Stamp set: Kinda Eclectic
Tools and embellishments: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Decorative Label punch and Basic Pearls
Adhesive: Tombow and Stampin' Dimensionals

The colors I've used are two of the soon to be retiring 2013-2015 In Colors and I absolutely LOVE them! I've been using them quite a bit and will continue to do so until they disappear. Grab them while you still can!
