Happy Saturday and welcome. Anybody watching the Outlander Series on Starz? I loved the books - all of them. Just finished reading the latest one (Written in My Own Heart's Blood - or MOBY) by Diana Gabaldon. If you enjoy historical fiction, with accurate research and a good love story, these books are fabulous. I read the 2nd one in the series first, then hunted up the 1st book as I knew there had to be a 'beginning'. This lady is a fantastic storyteller, writes very believeable dialogue - not silly like you see in so many love stories, and her research is incredible too. Lots of history - and she takes a rather dubious premise of time travel and MAKES YOU BELIEVE IT! Anyway, I watched the 1st episode which our cable provider showed last week, but the official start is tonight. I was so pleased that the move is following the book fairly well. If you're a fan, I'd love to know what your thoughts are.
OK, here is today's card:
- a snippet of dp from the Colorbok Water Color theme 12x12 pack, die cut with the S/B Delicate Doily. Scored on the edges. Then embossed. Had it taped in 2 places as it was embossed, and the paper still shifted just a tiny mite. So aggravating, and I have the magnetic platform too, but didn't bother to use it, as thought the tape would keep it stable. Bright orange paper behind the openings. Tried different colors, liked the orange best. Happy colors I think.
-Impression Obsession cling stamp sentiment using Memento Rich Cocoa Deluxe (pigment) and heat embossed with Ranger Clear Fine Detail EP. This card is slightly smaller than I usually make, but this was the size of the snippet, so therefore..... It can be used for general purposes depending on what sentiment goes on the inside.
Thanks for joining me this afternoon. Hope you're having a terrific day. We're going to a Fish Camp with some neighbors this evening..about an hour away from where we live. Hope the food is good. If you don't know what a Fish Camp is, that's a southern term for a place where one gets fish (usually fried but can be fixed in other ways too), hush puppies (made from corn meal for those who don't know that term - again southern fried food)..and other side veggies. We'll get our cholesterol fix for the year. Big Hugs, and come again when you can.
