Good morning all!  Well the start of the school year is fast approaching here in Southern Indiana (August 1) and the teachers are back prepping their class rooms and in meetings.  That means . . . Hadlee is back with YaYa!  We are staying busy for sure . . . lots of playing and rocking on the agenda . . . oh and trying to keep up with the now very mobile grandbaby.  She loves to be in the studio with me . . . her walker zips all around and everything is easy prey!  I must wear shoes when she’s in that walker  . . . the top of the feet are not safe!

Some weeks ago, when I was participating in the Color Throwdown hop, I prepared today’s project.  Okay I didn’t finish it entirely then . . . I realized after getting the stamping done that I had used the wrong colors, so I needed to start over then.  I did save it however; and finished it up the other day.


I added a little extra stamping on it and a few more lines in the flowers to finish off the image.  I actually liked this flower better than the other I did, but the colors weren’t correct  . . . so.  As with the other card, the image was colored with markers, misted with water and then stamped on watercolor paper.

I needed a birthday card over the weekend, so Happy Birthday (from Michael’s) was stamped and little tag was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders® Charmed I’m Sure.  Of course, in my quick and easy line of cards, the card front and base were die cut/embossed with A2 Matting Basics A and B.

The ribbon was dyed with Ripe Persimmon to match the color of the flower.

Well that’s all for me right now.  I’m off  and running this morning . . . doctor appointments, Hadlee to pick up, blah blah blah!  I nope y’all have a wonderful day!
