Love Herringbone

A few years ago, CTMH came out with a background set that included a Herringbone pattern.  I didn't get it before it retired and regretted it immensely.  When the new catalogue came out with the long border patterns, they were first on my list of things to get.  Since I'm not a consultant, I waited for this month's Stamp of the Month because it was my favorite, and my box arrived earlier this week.  One of the first cards I made was this one:

I must confess, the idea was not original to me. I saw it over a year ago and have been waiting to recreate it.  It comes from the very talented Tosha Leyendekker's blog.  So easy, so classic.  I used Distressed Backgrounds with Sweet Leaf pigment ink.  (Again, the photography doesn't capture the color correctly.  Drat!)  The sentiment is from A Friend Like You.

Non-CTMH products are the pink rhinestone heart (Michael's???) and the postage stamp die cut (Cuttlebug).

This is my third entry in the Heart2Heart: Go Green challenge, and I'm not done.  I have at least one more card coming. 

It's one-thirty in the morning here.  I went to bed around eleven and have tossed and turned disturbing my poor DH.  I finally decided to just get up and do this post.  I think I need to lay off the caffeine for a few days...but then how will I get any writing done?  Ah, the vagaries of a writer's life.  Words seem to flow in direct proportion to the amount of caffeine flowing through my veins.

Until next time,
