Start Every Morning With A Smile

Hello again!
I'm back already!

Like I said yesterday, that 
is just too good an opportunity to pass up!

I had to make another card.

For this one, I was sitting there staring at
Admit One, waiting for inspiration to strike.
But my eyes kept roving over toward my new 
 I only recently got it and I wanted to play with it!

Well, my eyes kept darting back and forth,
back and forth, and suddenly -- an IDEA!

This is what I came up with:

It was a little time-consuming, but totally worth it.
What I did was stamp connecting rows of the ticket,
make a mask of the ticket with the center cut out,
then used all the adorable breakfasty items 
to make Breakfast In Bed ticket strips.

I colored each of the images in with Copics,
then I perforated between each ticket with a 
Tonic perforating tool, and trimmed them out.

Here's a closer look at the tickets.

I embossed the background with the blue ribbon 
from Admit One, used some yellow Bazzill
Swiss Dots cardstock and made a fun little strip
with the salt and pepper shakers from 
Love 'N Breakfast in Jenni Bowlin Lemon Drops ink.

I added some blue gauze from my stash, a bloomer,
May Arts blue gingham ribbon,
 Papertrey buttons, and secured the tickets to the card
with some gray and white twine from The Twinery.

I think this would make a super fun gift for 
Mother's Day or Father's Day 
or your spouse's birthday, or even just because.

When the recipient is feeling like some
extra time in bed and a home-cooked and served
breakfast, all they have to do is tear off the tickets
of the items they want and hand 'em over. ;o)

Anyway, I thought it was fun.
I hope you like it too.

One other quick thing, I forgot to mention
yesterday that this contest only goes through the 6th,
so be sure to head over to the Lawn Fawn blog
and get the info you need to get going on your entries.

There's also TONS of stunning cards to view --
I looked at them all tonight and WOW, what inspiration!
I also found some great new blogs to visit,
and maybe some new bloggy friends to be made. :o)

Take some time and do that if you get a chance.

Have a great day, everybody!
