I repeat – Hi There! How are you? It has been another one of those weeks when I have gotten caught up in life and deserted the blogosphere for a few days.
Today’s card was inspired by this cute card on the Lucy’s Cards blog. Mine is a no-sew, faux stitch version, made using six of the eight colors Close To My Heart will be retiring from its Summer color collections. Along with Bubblegum,
Clover Meadow, Orange, Citrus Leaf, Ocean, and Hydrangea, it will retire Star Spangled Blue and Watermelon. They will be replaced by colors that appear to me to be more muted and perhaps, trendy. I am anxious to see them along with the new catalog, which will be available for consultants to view online tomorrow.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy (textured), Bubblegum, Clover Meadow, Orange, Citrus Leaf, Ocean, and Hydrangea cardstock; Clover Meadow ink pad; Hero Arts Thinking of You stamp set; Uni-ball Signo Broad Gel Pen; Piercing tool; Stampin’ Up Piercing Guide & Mat.
I hope you have had a good week. Last night, Mom, my sister, Karen, and I attended the last of the Community Art Council’s summer productions. “Leaving Iowa” is a comedy that makes you laugh until you cry while simultaneously touching your heart. We had a good time. Earlier today, Mom and I checked out a Farmer’s Market, had lunch, and did a little shopping downtown. With a house that has fallen into disarray these past few days, I need to go get to work. I’m hoping husband is in the mood for a quiet evening at home. If so, I’ll spend it in my corner. My fingers are crossed. Enjoy your evening, friends, and thanks for stopping by!
