Beautiful Day

Happy Day my friends!  It's Thursday already and even better than that... it's the last day of May!  How the heck did we get to the end of May already? 

I had some time to play this past weekend and pulled out one of my favorite Pure Innocence stamps, Sunflower Girl

I used the May SFYTT for my layout.  It's a goodie!

Papers are Basic Grey.

I'm off and running to get this day going.  Thanks for stopping by!

Revisiting Vellum

Look at this - 2 posts in one weekend! LOL

It's our wedding anniversary this weekend so I didn't have a whole lot of time to play, but I did make one card.  I was inspired by Friday's Free For All challenge over on SCS to use vellum.  I love vellum, but it's one of those "old" things that doesn't get much use. 

I stamped the flower bouquet (Hero Arts) on white cardstock and colored with Copics.  Then I stamped it again on vellum and embossed with clear EP.  I colored only certain flowers on the back-side and cut each out.

 The vellum flowers are attached only at the center and the petals are curled up to look all fluffy.  Each vellum flower has a black Viva Pearl dot in the center.  A couple little vellum butterflies (Martha Stewart punch) are added in the corners.

The sketch for the card is from Retro Sketches #11.

I hope you had a fabulous weekend!

Hello Hello... how did this week go by so fast?  I meant to post this card days ago.  *sigh*

I played in the SCS Inspiration Challenge from last Saturday and created this card.

It's our granddaughter's 10th birthday this year and when I went to the inspiration website, Hard to Find, I found this piece and the idea just fell into place.  I love when that happens!

It's suppose to be a lovely day here in our neck of the woods, so my husband and I are heading over to Stillwater for an art show along the St Croix river.  I hope you have a lovely day as well!

Happy Day!

Happy Saturday!

It seems like forever since I've had a Saturday to sit in front of my sunny window and play.  I'm taking full advantage of it today!  LOL

Recently I found a great new (to me) blog - Freshly Made Sketches and I was inspired by their latest sketch, #34.

I pulled out a bunch of my favorite dies; Memory Box, Papertrey Ink, Tim Holtz, Spellbinders and Taylored Expressions (I love them all!  LOL) and got busy.  The paper is October Afternoon.

I put a little Antique Linen crackle paint on the circle and boy did that give it some extra texture.   The word "Day" has Rock Candy Stickles on it for some sparkle.

Isn't this a great sketch?  I'm sure it's one I'll use often.

I hope you're having a beautiful, sunny Saturday!
