Happy Wednesday! Man, am I ready for the weekend or what? lol! I came home from work Tuesday very tired and grouchy! My ADD makes it very hard for me to sit in trainings all day, plus it's like 10 degrees below zero with the air-conditioning, and I'm freezing to death! I think I'm going to suggest we do some make and takes...I need to do something with my hands and be creative! lol! Okay, enough whining...sorry!
I made this card Sunday night for the Featured Stamper #80 challenge over at Splitcoast. This week the featured stamper is the super sweet and talented Jessica Rone. I chose this card of hers to copy, and I changed the colors and the stamp set. I also did not add that cute row of brads around the bottom...I tried, but the *cheapness* in me just wouldn't let me do it! I kept imagining them at the bottom of someone's trash can! I was already taking deep breaths using this much cardstock! Girlfriend is not stingy with her layers! lol! They look beautiful, though, and whoever gets this card will know they are very well loved by me! *wink*
A few details...the finished size is 4" x 9". Don't you love these colors together? I wanted to use my new hostess collection Print Patterns paper, so I looked at my SU color wheel and pulled this color combo out: Not Quite Navy, Always Artichoke, and Bashful Blue (it also listed Close to Cocoa which I didn't get worked in there.) That color wheel comes in handy sometimes! Also, I wanted to glue the beads on the Eastern Blooms flowers like we did on this Convention make and take, but I didn't have any beads, so I used the Bashful Blue brads instead.
Hope everyone is okay out there with these crazy storms, let us know how you're doing in your part of the country! Thanks for stopping by!
