Hi everyone! Monday mornings are a challenge aren't they?! But it's a new day, a new set of possibilities! John & I want to thank everyone who offered condolences on the passing of his dad...they are very much appreciated!
I had a few minutes yesterday to play with the Match the Sketch sketch..they always have such nice ones:
I am loving the papers in the Serene Scenery tablet, but sometimes they can be a bit challenging! I have found that stamping a big honkin' sentiment right on the paper works great! This time I used one from Friendly Wishes and stamped it in Chocolate Chip...haven't used that one for a while! Check it out:
Isn't that dandelion paper the sweetest? I cut out a scalloped square of Chocolate Chip cardstock with SU's new Layered Scallop Squares and used the crosshatch image from Best Birds to stamp on it. You all probably know this, but if you want a subtle color on your background, use Versamark ink....it doesn't overpower the cardstock like it might if you used a regular ink pad! It's not just for embossing! I stamped the sunflower from Every Occasion (let's pretend that it's a dandelion) in Basic Black ink on watercolor paper, then colored it with an aquapainter and Crushed Curry and Delightful Dijon inks:
I added a little tiny shadow around the image with a Sahara Sand marker, some speckles, and mounted it on a Crushed Curry circle mat; the ribbon is some retired chevron that worked well with my color theme! Hope you like it!
Speaking of pretending, my friend Claudia snapped this photo yesterday on the playground at church:
Cassidy is playing school with Claudia's grandkids...she is telling them to "line up"...sound familiar?! LOL! You can see that they're way up high, too....school in the sky!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
