Paper Tiredness

Have you ever just gotten tired of looking at the same old paper? Its not like I don't like this paper (Everyday Blessings) from Papertrey ink, but I just want it used up. Make sense? So... in order to have it gone, I have to use it (lol). I did use up a bunch of the little scraps not to long ago, but I still have some left and of course, its my least favorite designs.

Anyway, the best way to use up the paper is to use it in large chunks so I did the whole card face with this sheet and coordinated it with the Aqua Mist cardstock. I also used Papertrey's Polka Dot Basics background with the Aqua Mist ink too. I love this ink color, but its definitely a love/hate relationship. I purchased the re-inker for it and I've actually used up quite a bit of it already. What can I say except it has "issues". I have my own, so I'm not going to worry about my ink's issues.

The "HI" are some thickers from American Crafts that I won as blog candy over at Moxie Fab World. In person they are closer in color than is represented here in the picture or at least my computer. I was jazzed about those thickers and hadn't gotten around to trying them yet. I give these a thumbs up except for the fact that they are foam and have a tendency to bend when placing them on your card.
