Airplane Congrats

I already posted earlier today (with my washi tape giveaway winner), but I'm popping back in with another quick post to share my card that's being featured over on the DeNami blog today.


Rather appropriate for this time of year with graduations every time you turn around, right? But you could also use this design idea for a promotion, new job, etc. I used DeNami's Medium Polka Dots and Small Congratulations. I found that bit of denim in my fabric scrap pile and used a trimmed-down sheet of copy paper to fold into a standard paper airplane. You'll find a bone folder useful for creasing the thicker folds!

The summery heat we are having today has inspired me to make one of our favorite warm-weather desserts:  a strawberry pie!! My homemade glaze is cooling now. I just need to mix in some sliced fresh berries into that, fill my baked pie shell, pop it in the fridge, and we'll have a refreshing dessert for tonight's supper. I can hardly wait!!!


Thanks for sharing my little slice of bliss for today!
Emily

PS  So many of you were gracious enough to leave comments about my new profile photo. Thanks for the warm fuzzies!! I couldn't be happier with it myself, and love that my sweet readers do, too. :D It was time for a change!!!

Oh, you're just so clever, Emily. What a cute idea. I am assuming you stitched that flight pattern as you do sewing so well.

I'm on the way to your house for some of that strawberry pie. LOL Sounds yummy

As soon as this card popped up on my FB page today I knew it was your work! It's just sooo cute! You are the only person I know who would be clever enough to put a paper airplane on a card!

Your pie sounds very yummy. The strawberries are still a couple weeks away here but they are definitely going to be early this year.

Thanks for sharing your awesome work. :)

Very fun use of denim Emily with the buttons and fun paper airplane.

Your paper airplane is much cuter than any stamp image!! And love the scrap of denim too!! I need to get my scraps of fabric out and do something with them!! Thanks for the inspiration, and enjoy your dessert!!

Oh my gosh Emily this is so cute. I love making those airplanes. I hate to admit it but I still make them and fly around the house. I don't plan on growing up anytime soon...lol Love the fun denim paired with the imagery. Well done and great idea.
Bear Hugs,
Carol
