Sunshine of Fall....
Please take a moment to remember those who lost their lives 11 years ago in the Twin Towers. Pray for their families... a loved one can NEVER be replaced and it can certainly only feel worse when it's something so unexpected and senseless. May their pain be eased a tiny bit knowing the country cares and we will "NEVER forget".
This weekend I had lots of running to do but I managed to get ONE card done. Oy! Hate when that happens and I HAD other plans. Oh well... what's a mom to do? Hee
Today I'm sharing the card I did using the latest Stamp TV Kit, "Sun-kissed Autumn". There are a couple little "burst-like" flowers in the set and I decided to use one as my "sun". :-)
My card began with some of the Pure Luxury "Sun-kissed" card stock pack, specifically Honey Mustard. I grabbed some Sweet Mango and misted it with water then crumpled it up in my hand. I smoothed it out and adhered it to my base. My image is stamped on White using Memento inks. I double stamped the leaves in two colors for a bit more texture to the image. I distressed the edges and added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Vintage Photo. A little bling and ribbon finished off my card. Perfect for my dear hubby... when I feel he needs a little "pick-me-up". ;-)
Thanks for stopping by today and hopefully tomorrow I can share something I created using my new Silhouette Cameo machine!!!! Eeeeek!!! I was so excited when it arrived last week but sadly something was wrong with my blade and they had to replace it for me. *sniff* But... it's here!!! Wish me luck and check back tomorrow to see if I get it going this time!! *HUGS*
