Using my Imagine!!!

Good morning to you! It has been a whirlwind of a week! My son neglected to tell me that his 8th grade pictures were today, I had to find out on my own when I called the school last Friday. This meant getting a haircut and going shopping for a shirt and tie, pants, shoes....the whole shebang! He also took his high school entrance exam on Saturday. On top of that Cort has had practices for cheerleading for the big game on Saturday. So this has meant more running and chasing! It is really a good thing I only had two children! LOL!

My card today uses the Imagine machine. I absolutely am in love with this machine! I love the sweet images and the layers that you can create with it. For this card I used the "Yummy" cartridge. I love personalizing my images by adding special touches to them. For instance, I used liquid applique and glitter for the steam. I tied my sentiment using some of my dyed seam binding. I used a bit of vintage lace and a couple of my Spellbinders to "ground" the image. The girlfriend stamp is by Crafty Secrets.
OH! and I added a bit of glossy accents to the coffee too! : )

Thank you for all the sweet comments about Cort's cheerleading video. It truly warms my heart to be able to share these special moments with you!
Have a wonderful Wednesday! The speed bump to Friday! ; )

Beautiful card! thanks for the inspiration. I feel your pain about the last minute running around for forgotten school notices. I don't think I ever got a school notice on time! But, we love them anyway :)
