I chose to stay home and not go to the campground because our weather has been just NASTY ...... rainy and cold ! Yesterday we just hit the teens and today isn't much better as the breeze feels like October !!! I think summer FORGOT to arrive just like our spring did !!! Oh well , at least this stuff doesn't have to be shovelled and we are heading down to the RV when DH gets home . He is on holidays until the 4th of July !!! Maybe the sun will decide to come out by then !!!!
With being home I did manage to catch up on a few things other then housewok ! My daughter called and asked me to do a card for the grandson's pre-school teacher Ms Sherri so yesterday I FINALLY sat in my room and created a card . I dug into some of my older Magnolia stamps for this one !
This is the outside of the card . I used my Copics to color my image ( sorry not sure what colors I used as it was a huge pile by the time I was finished ) , some Prima flowers , Deco Pearl Pen , glitter swirls ( thanks E ! ) , Sakura White gell pen ( love this pen ! ) , Spellbinders Nesties , Martha Stewart punch and some Tim Holtz Distressing ink ! The note paper I hand wrote on like a page from her journal .
This is the inside of the card .... I LOVE this little guy and he reminds me of my Grandson so I just had to add him ! I hope Ms Sherri likes the card !
On Thursday our 3rd Granddaughter turned 12 and as I am heading down there for the day for a belated birthday campfire and burnt weiners ! LOL ! That is what she wanted as she didn't want a birthday party ! This is the card I JUST finished for her . I LOVE the new release Magnolias as they are totally adorable !
I used some Kaiser Craft paper and finally broke into the packaging of my new Spellbinder dies which have been sitting on my desk for a month at least ! Flowers are K & Company and from my stash that I have had FOREVAH !!!! LOL ! Lace is from Wild Orchid and Martha Stewart butterfly punch was used . Butterfly was decorated with a touch of Deco pearl pen ( so much fun to use ! ) and if you look amongst the flowers you will find a stickpin with a bow ..... the stickpin is from the Webster's Pages collection . Of couse Tilda is colored with Copics and the raindrops are dabs of Glossy Accent !
Have a great week everybody and I hope you have some sunshine in your life !
