Take a Deep Breath...

German Phrase of the Day: Wie lange kennt ihr euch schon? = How long have you known each other? I've known my husband for over 13 years seems like such a long time to me!! I can't believe he STILL tries to pull the "Do you like seafood" trick on me like he did back then! Fortunately, I'm on to before he can open his mouth so I can see his food, I quickly respond no thanks.

Here's a card I made over the weekend with some advice from my daughter. I stamped the yoga image 3 times. Once on the pale yellow, once on the lovely orange, and a third time on the green. I decided the green would be her mat, the orange her pants, and I wasn't sure yet for the top. So...I started cutting out the pants and was about to cut out the mat when she says "you'll have to put the pants on top of the green so they show" Now, I was going to cut all around and end up with 4 different pieces of green to stick down, but her simple statement reminded me, oh yeah...I can just put the pants on top of the mat and not worry about it! I was so happy!! :-)

All the cardstock is from the Prettie Boutique. I love the shimmery green...and this orange is such a wonderful earthy a nice ochre! I stamped the lotus flower from Serenity Now (included in January's MFT box from Paper Pretties) in wild wasabi ink on the green card to start. After figuring out what I was going to piece, I decided instead of coloring her tank top, I would color all around it, so the floor became brocade blue, and the walls a lovely really rust.

After getting it all together, I added some chocolate chip taffeta ribbon from SU! I would have preferred some chunky fibers, but I couldn't find any. Oh well...ribbon will do.

Take a deep breath will do you wonders! :-) And...lots of excitement coming up soon. I have 2 launches next Monday (the 10th), Paper Pretties is releasing 2 fabulous new stamp sets in their forum at and GinaK is launching 5 new sets in her SCS forum! WOW!! Watch for some Prettie Peeks coming this week...and if you're impatient...go to the Paper Pretties site right now for your first peek! (And yes...I will DEFINITELY be getting up for this one - even if it is at 2am my time!!)

  1. Gorgeous card, Jana! Love the rich colors you chose.
    Never noticed your new banner. Is that Florida?
    Your husband's trick is hilarious. I would have said no and left him dissappointed. I don't eat anything out of the sea.
