I have a quick post for you today showcasing the fabulous dies from the Greetery called Botanicuts Lilies. I paired it with the Knit Wits Stencil - also from The Greetery. I was inspired by both the photo and the sketch across at Fusion:
I love the mixture of the blues, white and pink in the inspiration photo and that's what led me to the lilies. I die-cut them and then colored them with my blending brushes and pencils. I added the detail lines with my pencils. I then used some Catherine Pooler blue ink with the knit wits stencil to provide the vertical element.
Here's my card:
On a personal note:
Still have one and a half days of vacation left and I am sitting out on the deck having my lunch as I type up this blog post. The weather is glorious. There's a slight breeze to take the edge off the heat and the house is shading the table. So, I am able to sit out here and listen to th ebirds and just enjoy having NOTHING that I absolutely need to do and no conference calls to attend. I'm using this time to do some more genealogy research. I'm hoping that if I sit here long enough, the birds will get used to me being here and let me take their photos. Right now, they are a little jumpy and won't stay around for longer than a couple of seconds! They arent providing me with enough time to get my camera out!
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift today.
