Simple Saturday

Good morning! I have a couple of cards to show you. The first one is made with JustRite's new Celebrations Demi Phrases. The Celebrations Demi Phrases fit in the new 2-inch Wood Stamper that comes with a bonus center and 15-point New Times Roman alphabet. The small JustRite alphabets continue to challenge this old granny whose eyes are not as good as they once were and whose fingers seem incredibly large when handling those teeny, tiny letters. Centering and spacing is a challenge, too. I can see that the "D" in "Friend" should have been pushed out 1/32nd of an inch or so. Sigh ... Perhaps a disclaimer on the package such as "Designed to drive perfectionists crazy" would be appropriate. LOL.

I colored the vase and flowers with markers, used mini brads for flower centers, and what you can't see, added Liquid Glass to emulate water in the vase.

Materials & Tools: White and Black cardstock; Daydream paper packet; Black ink pad; Blush, Hollyhock, and Heavenly Blue markers; JustRite 2-inch Wood Stamper and Celebrations Demi Phrases; CTMH Boutique Borders stamp set; Black mini brads; Liquid Glass; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circle set.

For this second card, I used Close To My Heart's very fun "Be Yourself" May Stamp of the Month set. It's a silhouette set, and I love it.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Black cardstock; Daydream paper packet; Be Yourself May Stamp of the Month and Happy Birthday stamp sets; Black mini brads; Sparkles; 1/2-inch square punch; Stampin' Up Word Window punch.

I'm posting between shopping trips. We have guests coming at 4. Thank heavens my husband knows how to cook. I'm feeling better today after a good night's sleep. My cold seems to be moving rapidly from one stage to the next. I'm not coughing today ... just lots of nose-blowing.

No, I'd better run. I sincerely hope your weekend is wonderful. In the event that I don't post again before tomorrow evening, Happy Easter!
