Do You Know What I Wish?

Don't you love a sentence that starts that way?

The answer is always a happy one, right? 100% chance of a grin.

I was inspired today by... a wish. No dandelion, just a wish.

So I made this for Kristina's color challenge.

This dandelion layer is one of the new printed window sheets from the Occasions Mini, layered on black cardstock. Yes - acetate with lovely designs on it!

When I was at CHA and ran into Shelli, she asked me what I thought SU! had to have that I had seen there. I said "Printed Window Sheets." She smiled and said "Really? We don't have them in the catalog? I swear I saw some." *twinkle* I felt like I should keep that a secret, so I did. But now, the cat's out of the bag - and these are STUNNING.

Always one step ahead of us, Mrs. Gardner is. Grant wishes, she does.

The card base is black, the designer paper is from Urban Oasis, and a strip of self stick rhinestones. The "wish" is part me, part rub-on from the Christmas set. I used the DSP to hide the adhesive holding the window sheets on.

This is maybe a four second card. Leaving you time for your wishes!

Here's how we celebrated Caturday at UBlue Central. An empty schedule, a three hour nap, and a sleepy blogging companion.Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)

  5. Wow! This is stunning Lydia!!! I can't believe Shelli was spilling catty secrets to you!!!! Too cool :) There's only 2 weeks to go til we get our new catty and I can't wait!!!!

  6. love it! i literally kept staring and staring at it. i thought it was digital at first and I SWEAR that the centers of the dandelions appeared to be moving - almost flickering.

    But then I kept reading - too cool about the meeting with Shelli.

  7. I love this post. Love it. Thanks!!!

  8. I LOVE this card! I think the dandelions look like fireworks almost- they just go so well with the bling and "wish".

    Word- ovatame

    "Didn't have a total hysterectomy just an ovatame and I feel great!"
