Good Day Stampers!
What a night I had here at the park. Last night for some reason my refuge, aka trailer, was invaded by mosquitoes. I spent the night swatting and killing dozens of the pesky little critters. DH and I couldn’t figure how the little buggers were getting in. We checked every window and crevice and to no avail. But I finally found the culprit at 1:00am in the morning – DH was fiddling with my window in the bedroom and knocked the screen out at the top of the window. So you see that meant a direct line to my legs and a late night snack. I have so many bites that my body was a burning itching mess. I am a mess to begin with so this didn’t have a whole lot of impact except to add to my misery! Coming home from a visit with family sucks!!!! ( and so do mosquitos)
Because I was up until 3:00am doing combat, I was a little tired today so did nothing more strenuous than having a nap.
But the good news for you is the weather cleared up and I did get a pic of the card I made yesterday so I have that to show you! I did two cards but I promised my sister that I wouldn’t post Christmas cards in July, so unless there is a huge outcry in favor of, I will hold off!
I got my pre-order from the soon to be released Occasions Mini just before I left on Friday. I have some lovely new stamps and some very new accessories. But they are for Christmas! I do have a fall stamp but managed to leave it home. Once again I am wishing I had more room in my little car. Maybe next time my DH starts making noises about a van I will be more receptive.
So here is your share for today –
I started with an Island Indigo card base. Added a layer of Whisper White which had been run through the Big Shot with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder. I had a Doily in Whisper White card stock and used that as my circle.
I stamped the flower from Flower Shop in Island Indigo, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight ink on Velum card stock and Whisper White card stock. I punched out the flowers with the matching punch and layered them with dimensional. I then cut out some leaves in Pistachio Pudding using the Big Shot and the little leaves die. I added them in a circle and placed the leaves around the flowers. I added some flowers and a button done with the Clay and molds. I colored the Pool Party flower with re-inkers and the Island Indigo flower with my aqua painter and some ink from the lid of the matching color. I did the same with the button.
I stamped the greeting and punched it out with a scallop circle punch and then I punched out some Island Indigo card stock to frame the circle. I added a rhinestone and called it a day. I spent lots of time on this one ladies, it was supposed to be a “Simple” card but escalated as I was putting it together. Yikes it’s like it has a mind of it’s own. Please don’t notice that I am not using the exact names of the SU products as I don’t have my catalog and because I have so many new products I can’t for the life of me remember all the names. :O)
I have another share for you today - it's not a card but the lovely Miss Emily! She is almost a year old now, such a little sweetie and I just had to show you this pic.
Look at that little face. I don't know how my daughter says no to her! lol She is growing up way too fast!
Well that's my share for today I will see what I can come up with for tomorrow! Hopefully no little critters in the trailer tonight!!!!
Itchy and Scratchy hugs!
