There are a lot of May birthdays in my family...I need a card for my brother...oops...it did not get done in time. I decided it was time to get in the craft room and stamp another card. I have been at my best this week as there was too much going on last week, too much salt in the diet and not enough sleep. sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and do it! My head has been in the game, just not my body...what do you do when it won't cooperate ?
When I take a break from card making, I have to do something similar to what I have already done. So I look through the cards that I have sold in my Etsy store and see if I can change it up a bit while keeping the same basic design. I really loved the butterfly card I did using the yellow, black and gray theme, but I wanted to use a purple ink and blue is always a fabulous color. Maybe it is because of all the rain we have been receiving that made me want to use this blue. The card base is blue and the mat is white cs, it has been stamped in layers using two neutral inks, the same purple and blue. There are three layered butterflies, my photography doesn't do this card justice. I also partial embossed with medium dots and a honeycomb ef.
I am so happy for a three day weekend. There is always so much to do that all I want to do is sit and enjoy. We ate our first yellow squash and zucchini out of the garden. If I want any more I am going to have to treat the plants and get some more seeds started. But I will be doing a Red/white/and Blue card for the weekend. Have a fabulous Saturday and thanks for stopping by.
