Here’s another card made with Close To My Heart’s Flower Pot April Stamp of the Month set. I “doctored” the window a bit by drawing in the window frame with a black My Legacy Writer. After coloring the window and shutters with Prismacolor pencils and OMS, I used a craft knife to cute out the panes. An added piece of acetate emulates glass, while a scrap of patterned paper creates a wallpaper background. I used my “still-borrowed” Scor-Pal to score the Buttercup “siding.” The flowers in the flower box, which were colored with markers, were attached with foam tape. The finished card is kinda cute and was fun to make.

Happy Friday! I’ve had a good week and hope you have, too. After struggling these past weeks/months with my new job, it is starting to come together. The past two jobs I’ve had have been newly created positions, which require one to carve one’s own niche, which can be kind of stressful, particularly for someone who is not very aggressive.
Tonight, I’m going to do a few chores, make a game plan for the rest of the weekend, and come up with a little something for Simple Saturday. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop back! Later …
