Happy Tuesday, everyone! Does it feel like Monday to you? It does to me....and this dreary, damp, no-sunshiney weather is doing a number on me!!! AND no sun predicted all week! GAH! Well, at least the CAS Colours and Sketches challenge has a couple of sunny colors in their fun, interesting double challenge this week:
I found this lined paper in my DSP stash that pretty much matched Hello Honey, and I stamped flowers from the retired Array of Sunshine directly on to the paper in Tangelo Twist and Going Gray:
I added a double-layer Hip Hello diecut (Poppystamps) in Hello Honey, added a few more leaves on the card base and finished it off with some Tangelo Twist ribbon and Going Gray candy dots:
Oh, and I added a little stitched diecut border at the bottom of my panel!!! This was an interested color combo to work with, but I enjoyed it!
I have been wanting to post a few pictures of a little event we had at our church a couple weeks ago, but haven't had time! We had a "Daughters of the King" banquet, which is sort of like a mother-daughter banquet, prepared for us by the men of the church, and afterwards, we had a program called "Apron Strings"! It was given by a set of 85-year-old Mennonite twins named Viola and Verna:
They read us poems and stories about aprons, shared their collection of aprons, and we had been told ahead of time to bring our own aprons to share! Here are a few of theirs:
The three above were embroidered gingham (what I might call chicken scratch), but they also had little canvas aprons that were nailbags, and they even had one for children:
They even shared quilts that they made featuring aprons!!
I'll share a few more pics later! Thanks for popping in and enjoy your day! Be blessed!
