Did I say, "Hope to see you tomorrow on Monday?" Yes, I did and then I wasn't here yesterday! I should have known that might happen and plan a post ahead. I was running all day. Then, hubby and I broke down and did our taxes last night! There's 4 hours of my life I won't get back!
So, today I have a really cute card to share. This number 25 from Kristina's Color Inspiration. Some wonderfully sunny colors. It is so gloomy here today and they are talking snow for the weekend, so I need a little lift.
I did a little "surgery" on this card. I had a long strip of Ballet Blue not quite wide enough for a standard card. So, I sewed this strip of So Saffron DP on the side. It seems I've been using my sewing machine for card making more than quilting lately! I also sewed the center of the largest flower. My favorite part of the card? My clouds. See them in the background? I used a scalloped circle and sponged some ballet blue. It's the first time trying this technique and I think it's cute and fun! My sentiment is from Michael's dollar bin.
I have to admit, I'm ready to finish the Color Inspirations. Getting caught up has been a bigger job than I had imagined. I will be glad when I have finished and am able to participate in more than just this one. It's kept me pretty busy!
