HSS324 and CAS341 Just A Note


Happy Monday, peeps!  It's a lazy day today; the weather here has been fabulous, but today it's cloudy and gray, but it's kind of nice for a change...it would be nice to actually get some rain!  But I digress....it's time for a quick card, using the Hand Stamped Sentiments color palette and a sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch:


I had this retired set, Wishing You Well, with the thoughts of making a different card with it, so I challenged myself to use it with these colors:


I stamped the sheaf with Grapefruit Grove and the florals on top with Terracotta Tile, then added some tiny Mint Macaron berries and a Terracotta Tile bow.  I also stamped a sentiment in Pretty Peacock.  Before adhering the bow, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtle embossing folder:


Just to bring in a wee bit more of the Pretty Peacock, I took a strip of cardstock and embossed it with the stitched die from Nesting Labels and ran it behind the area where the sentiment would be:


Finally, a birthday greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday on the inside, because I am notorious for forgetting the inside sentiment and then when I go to mail out the card, it's not ready!  So a little Pretty Peacock and Mint Macaron, and it's good to go:


 So happy you popped in today!

A little farming activity from last week:



I get a little sad when I see the farmer that rents my dad's land....it reminds me of my own dad, when I was little, out doing the same thing.  Only, he didn't have a big fancy tractor like this one, LOL!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

A perfect card for that color challenge! I do the same thing and forget the inside of the card and then I’m in a mad rush to get it mailed!
