Good evening, and here's hoping you're all set for a lovely weekend. Our snow is all gone, and today our temp went to 78F. Crazy weather for our area in January. However it was so nice to have warm sunshine, and we enjoyed a nice ride down in the country doing a couple of errands in a little nearby town. We skipped driving on the interstate to drive on some state roads in what is basically a rural terrain.
OK, here's today's card. Colored the image while in Florida, but then it's taken me much too long to decide how to card it up.
- Stampingbella image colored with copics, some WoS, and die cut with a Sizzix die. Sponged the edges with DI Victorian Rose, while still in the die, and then used Picked Raspberry to drag the edges of the die cut image for a little more hot pink. Did a faux mat with the turquoise and hand cut that. Sentiment is from the same stamp set.
- Hot pink c/s was trimmed to card base size, and embossed with the Lil Inker Stitched Spirals Die (used the tan embossing mat, so that the c/s didn't cut, just embossed). Sponged over the raised areas with DI Seedless Preserves to get a little closer to the shades of these chicks' feather boas.
- MStewart birthday cake punch, a white snippet, colored with copics, and some WoS on the candles. (when dragging the die cut through the Picked Respberry, of course there was a little smudge. Hunted punches to cover, and a butterfly just didn't seem to be appropriate!).
It took me a while, but I finally got visits paid to all the lovely comments on the Christmas Club & snow posts. Sorry I was so slow, but life has been busy, and sometimes I'm just not in the mood to sit at the computer :-). For one reason, I sit down with some coffee in the morning, & next thing, it's noon with nothing accomplished. So I'm trying to do better about that, not even turning on the computer until late afternoon. Of course I can find other ways to waste my time!!
There's a new card on Cards By Friends, so if you have time, do enjoy it with us. Ya'll have a good weekend, and thanks for joining me this evening. Prayers & Hugs to all my friends who might be needing those just at the moment. Come again when you can.
