Sunshine of my life...

Today I'd like to share a card I did using the newest Stamp TV Kit, "Sun-Kissed Autumn".  There are so many fun images in this set and the new Pure Luxury card stock colors are so fun to coordinate with it as well as the GK Patterned Paper Packs of the same name.

Once again I moved a little outside my "norm" and decided to go with a CAS card design and also do some more watercoloring!

My card base is Pure Luxury Lemon Drop card stock.  I stamped my image using Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with my SU watercolor crayons.  I used one of my large Oval Nestabilties as a template to sponge around with some Memento Dandelion ink. 

Simple but fun, I think.  :-)

Tomorrow will be the last day of summer vacation for my kids.  They head back to school on Wednesday.  We have been busy already with High School band camp and tonight we worked at helping the 10-12th graders get fitted for marching band uniforms.   Ugh!  Talk about hot work!!  I was taking on my dear friend Suzanne Dean's antics tonight as I got my tennis shoe all twisted around some weeds and fell in the grassy area between the school and parking lot and if that wasn't a great way to start the evening!  Pulled a calf muscle and dropped my slushie which I had JUST bought!!! My son thought it was a hoot that I fell and sat there looking sadly and moaning cause I dropped my drink!!! LOL  He was all concened about ME and I was crying over "spilled milk". LOL 

Sad it sounds... I STILL have to get my kiddos their school supplies so that is on the agenda for tomorrow.  Oy vey!! Will the spending ever stop??? LOL  I think on Thursday... their first FULL day at school and MY first day at home ALONE, I may just sit and think!  Not move a muscle nor speak to anyone the whole day... until they arrive back home... just enjoying the peace and quiet! LOL  Who's with me??!!! 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are having a great first of the week!  *HUGS*
