à la modes - I've Met My Match

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and a wonderful Father's Day. I had a fantastic time at Stamping Around Ohio! I want to give a big shout-out to all the ladies who were so much fun and so enthusiastic! I'll have photos later on this week, but today I'm here to share the newest à la modes set from My Favorite Things! :)

Here's a card featuring I've Met My Match. I *love* this set (no pun intended)! I've been playing tennis since high school, and I've been in a Thursday morning league for about three years. It's one of the things I will really miss when I return to teaching in the fall. So, this card is for all my Thursday morning ladies! :)


The paper is from the Lime Twist - Life of the Party pad by My Mind's Eye. I created a felt border with the Die-namics Little Open Scallop Strip, and I embellished with Honeydew Twine and a button.


I finished the inside the inside of the card with more paper and another sentiment from the set.


Stop by Kim's Blog to see the list of designers who have previews of this set today. I'll be back tomorrow with the second à la modes set, and then we'll have the VIP Hop tomorrow night!

Thanks so much for visiting today -- have a great day!
Christina

Super cute card, Christina, and reminds me I need to start back with my tennis group soon. I miss it! You're starting to teach again in the fall?! I had no idea! How do you feel about that? Mixed emotions? Anyway, be on the lookout for a little happy mail from OK! :)
