Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday... almost Friday... YAY!!! I am SO ready for the weekend.
The weather has been crazy here. 103 degrees with 90% humidity. Come back winter, all is forgiven!!!! Seriously, that's way too hot for me. Luckily, today the weather cooled and it felt almost cold. The temps went down to the mid-70s and it felt almost arctic :-)
I have another two of the one layer cards to share with you today. I really enjoyed playing around with this format and hope that my work colleague gets pleasure out of these cards that she will be receiving as part of her thank you gift for my spa gift!
I was thrilled that Flores Suaves was still in the Spanish catty this year. I really LOVE this stamp. The butterfly is such a gorgeous shape - and is wonderful to color. Regardless of what you use to color this butterfly, you can't go wrong. In this case, because I wanted really bold colors, I used my copics.
The background is created by using one of my SU clear blocks and applying ink to it. The fact that you are applying ink every time gives a slightly different background - and I like that.
Here's the one that I made using the new Faith in Nature set - available as a hostess choice in the new catty. (available July 1)
Isn't that pretty? I used my SU markers for these stamps and they work beautifully.
Now.... a couple more of you have offered to help with the card drive... thank you so much to Kelly and to Lizzie. I REALLY appreciate it. I will be sending you all an email this weekend with my address so that you can send the cards for the Operation Write Home card drive.
BTW... Lizzie is still looking for the retired SU punch Deco Corner Punch. She REALLY would like to use this on her 50th wedding anniversary invitations. I've searched everywhere for her - including ebay, craigslist, etc. and come up blank... so if any of you have one in your stash that you aren't using.... Lizzie would be very willing to give it a new home :-) Please let me know on jaydeestamping at charter dot net if you are able to help out.
On a personal note..... it has been crazy busy the last couple of days and I haven't had chance to get into the stamping space to play with my new goodies.... that's why you are all still seeing the cards that I made last weekend :-) I do hope you will all forgive me. I really am hoping to get into my space this weekend to make some new cards
I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend. I will be back tomorrow night!
Prayers and hugs for those of you who need a little lift.
