Happy Wednesday, peeps! I am late today---I had stamp camp last night where we made some nice Christmas cards, and this morning was so refreshingly cool that I relaxed a bit! It’s a welcome relief from the hot, humid weather we’ve been having!
I needed two sympathy cards this week….I had a couple of ideas in mind and then I got my SU order with my holiday mini items, so I broke open Magnificent Maple and made a one-layer card:
Again, this is one of those cards that looks so much better in real life! I embossed the leaf with Versamark and gold embossing powder, which makes it eligible for the CASology 54 challenge, which is “gold”; I added some twine around the stem, which qualifies it for the CAS on Sunday challenge, which is kraft and twine. After embossing it, I made a mask and stamped the French words from Nature Walk and did some sponging, then stamped the words from Blessings from Heaven.
I have received several nice cards in the mail recently and I thought I’d share one a day with you! This one came a while back, but I don’t think I shared it; it’s from my friend Teri:
Finally, Cassidy spent some time playing with her dolls and some chalk; thankfully the chalk washes off easily because she was covering every available doll surface with purple—even her scalp!
