Can you believe that it’s Smiley from already?  The days and weeks are flying by.  Heck, it’s already time for school to start again.  Kate goes back to work next week and we move Mallory back to school the following week.  The school term summer has gone by fast.

I’ve been wanting to make cards with the Karen Lockhart images we worked on Monday and today I got the first one done.  The hold up has been that I couldn’t find the right paper to go with the images.  Yesterday I found it . . . some old Making Memories paper, Homespun!

Pears from Class

The image on this card was one that we worked with the stylus on and colored with Prismacolor Pencils.  It also the one I got jammed in my die cutter and couldn’t get out without some effort.  In this close-up you can see all the tiny little lines where it was under too much pressure.  I actually think they add to the image and I love the look.

The card is also a size that I haven’t made in a very, very long time.  Plain and simple just seem to work with this image.  The edges of all the paper was sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then it was all sewn together with a background layer of cardstock.  I even have a white base . . . I know!  So odd for me.  The seam binding is the original color and not even dyed.  No I do not have a fever  . . . well, at least I don’t think so!

The image is die cut/embossed and layered on Spellbinders Labels.  The border is die/cut embossed with the new Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities.

I’m heading to the studio to work on some late projects that I need to get done.  Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . . life is short, embrace the adventures that come your way!
