you blue me away...

has anyone been watching the Olympics coverage?  did you see the opening ceremonies?  i know it's a bit belated to comment, but you know what blew me away?  the Mr. Bean section and the Queen + James Bond.  O.M.Goodness.

i'm still thinking (and by thinking, i mean laughing) about it, even now.  so funny.  i won't ruin it for you, but if you haven't seen it, do a quick search on youtube with the keywords "olympics" and either "mr. bean" or "james bond."  can't miss it.

okay, back to crafty stuff.

today's card comes in a mostly monochromatic scheme--blue!

i used three types of washi tape (have i mentioned i love that stuff?) a solid turquoise, a striped turquoise, and a Tim Holtz tissue tape.  so easy, so versatile.  no patterned paper to measure or cut, no adhesive needed.  but doesn't it add so much to the card?  i love it.

i added some trim above the solid washi tape, and the die cut label with "No." on it are both from Recollections.  i had cut a heart from DCWV glitter card stock, and there were some jewels in my stash.

and there you have it!  a BLUE card for someone you love... maybe who's feeling a little down, in the dumps... don't you think this would make them smile?

well, thanks for stopping by, and i'll see you soon!
