Nom Nom NEON Nom....

Lately as I walk through the stores I'm taken back to my teenage years...the 80's was full of great music, big hair and bright neon colors! From clothing, notebooks, hair accessories and nail polish...neon is {once again} HOT HOT HOT!
All this yumminess makes me want to grab a white shirt from my dads closet and pair it up with a loose pencil (skinny) tie, a wrap around belt. black leggings those thin nylon neon socks with the fold down cuff and a pair of black flats! Ahhh, those were the days.....sigh!!
While shopping at the "big red bullseye" store, I came across something that made my heart smile...neon Washi!!! I quickly snapped a picture and texted Paulina (From DeNami & Pretty Pink Posh). Ohhh the joy and wonderfulness those neon Washi tapes brought to me, I was in love at first sight! I quickly scooped them up into my cart! I would have probably tried to shank someone with some Cutter Bee scissors and tied them up with Doodle Bug twine if they dared touched my Washi...just sayin'. It would have been U.G.L.Y!
When I got home I decided it was finally time to order the fun neon inks that I saw Paulina using from Ellen Hutson (link on her Pretty Pink Posh blog - bottom right hand side).
Good thing Ellen Hutson has super fast shipping, I don't think my heart could have taken too a long wait! The day I received them I just HAD to make a little card. The little splatter and sentiments are from the Zombies stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop was perfect for showcasing these fun colors....

After stamping my splatters and sentiment I added a few strips of neon Washi and finished it all off with some paper "twine", a little flag and a lime green button. Hope you love it just as much as I do :) 

Since I already had the stamps, button and paper twine (and kinda sorta the Washi) I'm entering this in the challenge over at Sweet Stamp Shop.

This week they've changed things up a bit, you can use one or both or neither of these pictures as a guideline....

That's it for me today. 3 day weekend...woo-hoo!!, what are y'all going to to do? I'm hoping to spend most of the weekend in my crafty area :)

    This is just brilliant! It really does take me back to the 80's - I had the big hair and the neon coloured tops or leg warmers - oh my - showing my age now but love your card!
