Notably Ornate: you're invited
Happy Thursday! Confession: I typed Happy Wednesday, then had to go check the calendar because I wasn't sure...that's a sure sign your in full summer vacation mode!
I received my box of new catalog goodies from Stampin' Up! yesterday, whoo hoo! I thought I would make a card with Funky Four first (LOVE that set!), but after looking at the beautiful Notably Ornate set (can you believe I cut that fancy frame out?!), I realized it would work perfectly for Kazan's Sketch #56 as well as the elegant colors in the Embellish Color Challenge: Invitations. So that's where I went. And look at that antique brad?! Are you in love or what?!
I didn't have any Always Artichoke ribbon, so I folded the paper and stitched it down (the *thumpity* noise made dh call from the other room to see if everything was alright...that Janome Sew Mini is TOUGH!). It's funny, when I pulled colors for the SU color renovation, I had pulled all my Always Artichoke oops! Even funnier, I don't have one solid sheet of this color, only about 5 scraps, guess I don't use it much?!
Okay, I better get moving. I'm finally getting a haircut this afternoon. I haven't had a haircut since November 12! Yes, I just pulled out my checkbook to check! ha! I ended up cutting my bangs a few times since then, and yes, it's very bad!
Hope you have a super, great day! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
