Simple Saturday

And, how is your day going? I hope it has been a good one. I've done OK, although I haven't accomplished quite as much as I'd hoped. That, I believe, would have required what Bjorn calls "Super Powers."

About my card, I had some inspiration but don't know from whom or where. I hate that. I can only redeem myself by saying that because I was working from memory, it may not as much as remotely resemble what I actually saw. LOL. Seriously, if I come across the original, I'll let you know.

As for card details, I colored the images with markers - quick and easy. I love the colors even though they remind me of fall, which will be here sooner than I want it to be.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Cocoa, and Stampin' Up Kraft cardstock; Bo Bunny Press Vintage Carnival patterned patterned paper; Cocoa ink pad; Brown Bag, Garden Green, Olive, Goldrush, Autumn Terracotta, and Sunflower markers; Hero Arts Trees, Birds & Messages stamp set; Stampin' Up Old Olive grosgrain ribbon.

I did a crazy thing today, as in starting a blog on Word Press. No, I do not need another blog. I already have another Blogger blog that is dormant. What I was going to do was import this one to Word Press. I got the idea from Tiffany, who, bless her heart, is obviously more blog/tech savvy than I am. She made the switch a few weeks ago and loves it. I thought I would, too, and might if I could figure it out. Another day, perhaps. Do take a look at Tiffany's iheartart blog though. Not only is her artwork fun and original, but she's been posting some interesting information of late as well.

Other than the blog thing, I didn't do anything interesting today. Cleaning. Laundry. Before bed, I'm going to go see what I can drum up for tomorrow in my little corner, so I have something to show you tomorrow. 'Til then, take care, and like always, thanks for stopping by!

Your card is GORGEOUS - I hate to jinx you, but I'm more than ready for autumn here!!! Bring it on!

Now, that's really selfish of me. You haven't had much of a summer up there yet. I'm sorry.

The "nuts about you" is so cute - and the tree is awesome! I love the card, truly.

Loving this card Kathi! I love that image. The tree is great!
I can never see one of your cards as drummed up LOL...I always wish they were one of mine!
Have a great Sunday!

Another beauty! Love the fall colors you've chosen. And I can use yours as inspiration, because I have that stamp set, Yay for me!

Hope you have a great day.

You are TOOOOO sweet calling me blog savvy, LOL! I started "the switch" last year and never finished! This year, I had more patience ;)

Your card is SUPER sweet!!!! And, I'd like to think that we don't have original ideas when it comes to art, just alterations of each other's!

Sharli said...

One more thing - Kathi, it is because of your perfectionism that we get to enjoy such magnificent art! If I were but a little more patient, my cards would be perfect every time as well. Alas, I'm usually ready to check off the next item on the list! LOL

Good luck on your blog at wordpress. Enjoy your day.
