Good afternoon! I just finished doing some reading for one of my  classes so I thought it would be a nice break to post a card on the blog. Robin has been stuck home all this week because of workmen in the apartment. While she doesn't exactly enjoy having to stay in the house all day, she did get a chance to make some amazing cards!  I can't wait to go home and see them. As soon as we get them photographed we will post them on the blog. 

It was pretty cold in New York today- I think the weather channel said it felt like 26 degrees when I left for class this morning. Walking back to my room, all I could think about was vacationing in a warmer climate. Therefore, when I went to pick a card for the post today, I thought this would be a great one. For all of you in the northeast, I hope this generates some warm thoughts of sunny days and sandy beaches. 

Robin created this card when we returned from our trip to Florida. She used the Clever Lever punches to create three dark brown squares. Although it may be hard to see, the brown paper actually has a really nice sheen to it. She then punched out three white squares that were slightly smaller. The shells are these beautiful stickers from Paper House Productions. They are incredibly realistic which is what drew us to them in the first place. I believe we bought them at Michael's Craft Store, although I have seen them in many stores recently. We have them in shells, butterflies, popsicles, and roses. They are slightly translucent so it is best to place them on white or light paper. The sentiment is a black rub off from Pebbles Inc. There is something very elegant about this card, with its clean lines and simple layout. Recently, Robin and I have been trying to make cards that are appropriate for both men and women. I think this card fits the bill perfectly!
