Leftover Scraps = Paper Weaving

With all I had going on last week, I waited until the night before my hubby's birthday to make his card. My craft desk was overflowing with scraps from various projects I've done over the last few days... well, maybe more like months. It's called creative chaos! Among the layers of scraps, I found some leftover strips from a pack of Walk in the Park designer paper. On one side they were floral and sort of girly, but flipping them over I found funky designs that would be perfect for a guy's card. I also found some strips of Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze card stock... so the weaving began!

You may wonder what a fru-fru umbrella drink has to do with my hubby. Well, this was the closest thing I had to a margarita stamp. You see, it's been a year long quest of his to make the perfect margarita. Coincidence or not, this quest started soon after our move to Texas. Yes, Tex-Mex and Margaritas go hand in hand. If you need a little proof, here's a picture my hubby "secretly" took yesterday (with MY new camera, I might add) of all the ingredients he has so carefully gathered:
I have to admit, of all the margaritas I've sampled over the last year, the one he made yesterday has to be the best so far!
Don't forget about the Buy 3, Get 1 FREE special on Designer Series Paper and Textured Card Stock--feel free to mix and match! Shop online or give me a call... but don't wait, this sale ends on May 31.
