Simple Saturday

Mixed Messages_Mar 2010

This card is all about the embossing. Isn’t it pretty? I love the deep embossing, which, unfortunately, is a bit of problem for CTMH’s white-core cardstock. The embossing folder is from Sizzix.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy textured, black, and Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet cardstock; Black ink pad; PTI Mixed Messages stamp set; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Hero Arts pearl accents; McGill multi-tag punch; Corner rounder; Cuttlebug w/ Sizzix Hello Friend embossing folder set.

We had a good time with the little guys. Last night, the four of us went out to dinner with Marv’s brother and his wife, and this morning, we played games and had all kinds of fun. Their daddy came to get them a little while ago.

My plans for today include cleaning up computer files. There is no sense transferring “junk” to the new one. With the help of my computer kid, I decided on an HP this time around – nothing real fancy but definitely, everything I need. My printer, which I bought directly from Epson, will be here Tuesday, and so, at some time next week, we’ll be “all new” again.

What are you up to this weekend? Anything fun? While it’s only 24 degrees, it’s a beautiful day here. Sunshine makes such a difference.

No, with a wish that yours is a wonderful day, I’d better go get something done. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh my goodness Kathi, this is so pretty. I love that embossing folder. Do the sizzix ones work with the cuttlebug? Is that what you use? Anyway, I love all the pearls. Did I mention how much I love this? LOL.

Love the simplicity and your color choice. Not typically a color combo I'd think of, but LOVE it! The pearls are also a nice touch.

Good luck with your new computer. If you are getting a laptop, I'm truly going to be jealous. I've wanted one for a LONG time. LOL
