Rubber Band Background

Hello everyone, welcome!!!

Well, after a few days of not posting i am excited to be back into the swing of things!! My hubby and I have been in Vegas for the last few days to stand beside our two best friends and watch them become husband and wife!! It was such an awesome time and experience! But there will be more of that later in the post!

First let's talk about this super cute, super fun Rubber Bank Background card that i made.  What is the Rubber Bank Background Technique you ask?  Well, it is just what it sounds like!!!!

Using a rubber band around the spool part of your brayer and then inking it up and rolling it all over is all it takes!!!  With this card i used Primrose Petals Ink, a rubber band, and my Brayer on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock cut at 4" x 4" and this was my end result! What do you think?  Pretty spiffy huh?  I love such simple techniques!!!  Once my background was complete i adhered it to my card base which i used Wild Wasabi cut at average size of 5 1/2" x 11", scored at 4 1/4" and then just topped two strips of Primrose Petals cut at 4" x 1" to the top and bottom of my Whisper White.

Now, i know what i am a day behind with the news but, i wanted to announce that SU! released the retired list for the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog! 

I am so,  so sad to see some of the items go but i got a sneak peak at the new catalog and let me tell you what... hold on to yourself because the new items that are coming out OH MY GOODNESS SOOOOO CUTE!!!!!! There is so much that i just can'' wait to show you!!!!  Click on the picture above to see the complete list!!

Now on to some Vegas shots!!

I love to fly... my hubby not so much so i got to sit next to the window and the view was just amazing!!! I was like a Garfield stuck to the window most of the time!!! We had such clear sky's and  smooth flight it was awesome!!!

Here is just one of the shots that i took from the Strip.  The buildings are so tall and everything is just so busy and fast paced.  It took my breath away!!

My hubby and I were the Best Man and Matron of Honor!!! I was so very honored that they asked us to spend their special day with them. Not going to lie... i was super excited too that they decided to get married in Vegas, lol:)  Don't you just love the hubby's bow-tie? I thought he looked very handsome!!!

After the wedding we had one day to site-see and do whatever we wanted.  We visited this awesome wax museum!  The figures there looked so real it was a little scary.  Before approaching them i had to touch them on the hands to make sure that they weren't real!! What would Vegas be without a picture with Elvis?!?!?!?

One of the last things that we did, this is me with the beautiful bride, was visit the M&M shop! We were calling this the Fabulous Four Floors of Fun because that is exactly what it is!!! I mean look at the M&M.... he looks as though he is coming down off a sugar rush, lol:)

Well all, hope you enjoyed my share today!!! Until next time...
