My Creative Time: Release Blog Hop!

Hello and good morning! Welcome to the blog hop for the newest release from My Creative Time!!! I LOVE this release!!! 

You should have gotten here from Cindy's blog! If not, start at My Creative Time!

Did you pre-order your stamps and dies yet? Go do it HERE! :) 

I made this for my husband. He LOVES his dirty martinis and so I wanted to make him a card so that the next hard day that he has - he'll come home and this will be sitting next to his dirty martini. I think he'll like it. 

The extra olives are because I always steal his olive out of his martini. We always order extra or put more in ourselves. I like my olives "well marinated". :) 

So... I was a little nervous about getting the vellum down without showing adhesive behind it - Xyron adhesive to the rescue!!! I ran it through my 1.5" Sticker Maker. love. Definitely will be using this with all my vellum.

Designer's note This doesn't show it, but there is actually a vellum shadow to the left of the martini. It looks good in real life. You'll just have to take my word on that. ;)
