Hello happy Memorial Day :-) are you prepared for some good BBQ with friends and family? Well.. my card has nothing to do with meats and sausages lol but what about a yummy dessert? Strawberries and cherries :-) I have found this cute paper a while ago in my store and i had to have it.. oh btw.. i have seen some cute new papers from BoBunny cat and dog themed.. i bought some of this paper as well in anticipation of the Magnolia pet Collection WHEN IS IT COMMING OUT? lol

Since iam planning on listing this card over on Ebay and i bought quite a lot of this Design Paper so i thought i could make a matching envelope (use "the Enveloper) for my card. If you have not seen my picture tutorial on 5. January you could check it out here. It is very easy and fast but it gives your card just a tick more "specialness" lol.. is this a word???

Stamp: Magnolia, Tilda in Cherry Dress (Kitchen Collection 2008), Sentiment: Stampin up "Thanks a tons" retired
CS/DP: Doodlebug Design Paper, Cardstock: Stampin up: Real Red, Pink Passion, Bazzil Bling for base
Tools/Embellishments: Nestabilities "Blossom", Word Window punch, Retro flower punch, Martha Stewart: pearl stickers, Strawberry felt stickers, Prima Marketing, Making Memories, Pink Jute received from Carole (thank you!)
Paper used behind Tilda and to color Tilda on: 89 lb Cover weight CRYOGEN WHITE
Copic Sketch used:hair: E50 (for blending and highlights), Y21, E31clothes: BG01, BG02, BG000 (for blending), R24, R27, R30 (for blending), R81 (also for Airbrushing), R85, YG06,skin:R20, E00, E11, E000 (for blending)

to make handmade envelope: "The Enveloper" i would also recommend to purchase the remoistable glue for your envelopes. In the past i have closed my envelopes with Mono Multi glue. I am very very happy with this glue.. however i find it not good enough for envelope boxes due to the heavy layers and embellishments i use. I have found that Scor tape is just PERFECT. I used it on everything.. on the altered note books i made because this is supposed to be an item that you USE.. i actually tape down the ribbon with it. That stuff sticks!!
okay.. last but not least the card was made using the the challenge over on Stamp with Fun which the very talented Nikki has created for this week a sketch and sponsors the blog! Thank you sweetie.
oh and some of you asked where i found that Cytrogen white CS (89lb!!) i spoke about yesterday... you can find it here.
