Come and see what I've made:
The card base is Naturals Ivory with Whisper White for the central panel to provide contrast. I was really pleased with the border which is made with Retro Remix, the wheel that coordinates with Hello Again. I loaded it up with Sahara Sand ink and wheeled it across the card front, then coloured bits of it with my watercolour pencils. I love the vividness of the coloured pieces against the buff of the card stock!
Look - here's a close-up. That sentiment is made from two stamps in So Happy For You, one of this year's Sale-a-bration sets. They really do get some use don't they?!
I used just the flower heads to make these cute flowers. The centres have been stamped again on a scrap of card stock, cut out with the circle punch from Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and popped up in the centres of the stamped flowers. Each flower was pierced with my paper piercer and decorated with a coloured brad. I loved using these bright colours today!

Have you noticed how men often communicate in monosyllables? I keep telling my husband it is NOT effective! Here's an example: Last week my teenage daughter kindly offered to pop out to the shop to get something I'd forgotten for dinner and my husband gave her some money to pay for it. When she returned we sat down to dinner and it was only afterwards he remembered he was due some change. "Change!" he said to my daughter as she was gathering her things together to go out to Scouts. "Oh no!" she said reassuringly. "We don't need to wear uniform today because we're having our end of term party, so I thought I'd just wear this!"
Thank you for popping in today. I'll be back tomorrow with a really quick card for Three Minute Thursday. Do come and have a look!
