Good evening, and welcome. Navy buddies have both arrived safely (although the luggage didn't arrive on the same plane with the fella who flew). We finally collected his carryon - which ended up in the cargo area, as there was no room in the overhead bins - tonight about 11pm. Exciting day and we had a nice dinner at the local Olive Garden (where I always get the Zuppa de Tosca and salad). Everyone but Moi has gone beddy-by.
Recently did a couple cards that needed to be mailed this week. Thought I'd snapped some pics, but when I unloaded the camera card, hmmm....only one was there. Guess I was dreamin'.
This is another image colored some time ago, and no clue as to stamp company. All I did to charge up the previously done coloring, was to add some gold WoS at the base of the sunflower petals, and some clear WoS on other parts. The leaves could probably have used a bit more dark shading now that I see the photo.
- Die cut with a xstitch rectangle die, (maybe Mbox die - largest in that set). Used a stitched die - a bit larger - to cut some paper that looks handmade (but wasn't) for a mat.
- Gold lightweight c/stock was embossed with an EF that had been inked with Memento Toffee Crunch, which toned down the bright gold quite nicely. Since the c/s used for this card base was of a lighter weight, used another c/s that was a bit heavier for the insert. No sentiment was added to this one.
Last bit was to add a trio of gold sequins. Thass' It Folks!
This evening was absolutely lovely. Sat out on the porch swing, with the evening sun filtering through the neighborhood trees, a cooling breeze making it feel so pleasant to be outside, and hummingbirds keeping me company. The neighborhood was very quiet, and our visitors came out to enjoy the peace. (neither of them are porch people, but I think they enjoyed it ...for a few minutes anyway.) I told them, This is what you do in the South!
Have a great Thursday, and thanks for stopping in! Hugs & Blessings.
