finally another post

I know I said I would be blogging at least once on Sundays in my last blog post in April, but what can I say? I've had a lot of family things that have fallen on Sundays lately, so I just haven't had a chance. But I'm back, finally, with a card that I made several weeks ago. 

I wish I could have photographed this better. It looks so much cooler in person. The whole thing is covered with Glitter Ritz glitter except for the black outline. The red, silver, and black interior is totally glittered. It's so sparkly in person. I really like it, although now that I look at it, the background reminds me of a chain link fence. Ha ha! Oh well! :) 

I used the hexagon background die from Simon Says Stamp and the hello die is from Lawn Fawn. I was inspired by this card of Jennifer McGuire's. This was such a fun technique. I will have to try it again sometime.

Can you believe it's June already? Where does the time go?

Oh, and by the way - my self-imposed schedule has been going pretty well. There's days when I don't follow it, of course, especially last week, since it was my dad's birthday and we had some family things, and then I got sick. But I'm feeling so much better now, so I'm getting back to it.
