Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday.
I have a very quick post for you tonight. I wanted to share a clean and simple card I made for the As You See It sketch challenge this week.
Here's the sketch - and I think it's a really versatile one!
I love the placement of the banners and knew that I wanted to use some of the DSP in the SimonSaysStamp July card kit. I paired the DSP with the sentiment from the June card kit!
Here's my take on the sketch:
I chose to highlight the red from the DSPs as I thought it was a nice pop against the blue base. I thought it was a good mascline card. Of course, I had to decorate the envelope, too. I used several stamps from the set contained in the "Sail Away" kit.
I'm tempted to make a feminine version using this sketch. Mmmm... I think that might be on the cards for tomorrow :-)
On a personal note:
We are still in love with the cattail metal bird feeders. So many of the birds really love them, too. Sometimes we can see 4 - 5 different species at once feeding on them. this little Downy Woodpecker is a regular visitor.
One of the plants that have come up in the prairie this year is the Swamp Milkweed. It has a really pretty cluster of pink flowers, but took a long time to flower and, in fact, only one or two of them have actually fully flowered. I will have to go back tomorrow and take a photo of the flowers.
As it was growing it was all leaf and I had no idea what it was. However, Georgina, the Groundhog, loved it. It was really interesting to watch her eat the leaves from the plants. She would approach a plant, eat one or two leaves from different parts of the stem and then move on to the next plant. A perfect example of budgeting your resources!
Here's what it looks like before it has fully developed:
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you that need a little lift tonight. If you are traveling - be safe!
