Fabulous Darling


Hello, peeps!  No challenges today; I spent the weekend with my dad and two other siblings; he's 88 years old, and you never know how much more time you'll have with a loved one!  I wish we had gotten a picture of us all but we totally forgot! Anyway, not much stamping time, so I am sharing a card I made a couple weeks ago highlighting the Garden Expressions DSP, Stitched All Around stamp set and the Stitched Labels dies:


Although this sentiment is fun, I am not quite sure to whom I would send it!!  But I loved this bold rose print in Melon Mambo and it seemed to fit!!!  I diecut the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes oval framelit, added a scalloped border from Seasonal Layers Framelits and tacked on a little stitched heart:


You can also see that amazing embossed "stitching" behind the sentiment, which is also from a die in the Stitched Labels set!  I love that thing!

My sister and I were hanging out on our porch and she snapped a picture of Sunday evening's sunset:


As usual, the picture doesn't do it justice!  It was a picture-perfect weekend, weather-wise, and today is gearing up to be hot and humid, so I am glad we were able to enjoy some nice temps before the heat hits!  John is always sad because he says the days are getting longer, but as soon as the first day of summer hits, they start to get shorter!!  I say, enjoy every hour we can!!  Be blessed!

You sure showed off Lovely Lipstick, LeAnne. It's so pretty! I've got to break out those stitched dies! Gorgeous sunset you had...were already very hot and humid and dry here!

Brilliant, in more ways than one! Yes, I don't know what to do with that sentiment either. Glad you had a good time in Delaware.

Really love that sentiment and your wonderful texture you've created here LeAnne! The views are always more brilliant in person, but thanks for sharing the beautiful photo! It was waaaaay too hot over my way to even be out to sit! Glad you enjoyed the tme! :)

This is lovely LeAnne as is that sunset! So glad you spent the day with your dad. I did too, what a blessing. Oh yes, brace yourself for the heat and humidity, we've had two days in the sticky 90's!
