Simple Saturday

Family Ties Children_2_May 2010

Here’s a fun card that was inspired by one in an old (2005-06) Stampin’ Up catalog. Old catalogs are great sources for ideas, and it’s kind of nice to pull them off the shelves and stir up the dust once in a while. LOL.

About the card, I colored my image with markers and then went around it with a blending pen and Juniper ink to give it a little more “pop.” Obvious, of course, is my favorite blue/green color combination.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Black, Citrus Leaf, and Dutch Blue (textured) cardstock; Black and Juniper ink pads; Citrus Leaf, Dutch Blue, Grey Wool, Brown Bag; Baby Pink, and Tombow Flesh markers; Family Ties – Children and Happy Birthday stamp sets; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Crop-o-dile; Dove blending pen.

Today has been a lazy day. I slept until after 9 and just never got going. Tonight, I’m going to sort my ribbon, which has managed to turn into quite a mess. A trip to Wal-Mart to see if I can come up with some better containers might be in order.

The boys are in Florida and are going to be calling their daddy before they go to bed tonight. I’m anxious to hear what they thought about the plane ride.

Signing off, I hope your day has been wonderful. Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome card, Kathi!

I hope the boys are having a great time. I know you miss them terribly, but what an adventure for them!

Super cute Kathi. I love how just one of the boys is colored.
