Wow, my mother warned me this would happen 😦 The older you get, the faster time goes! Don’t you hate it when your mom is right! ? No bad news, I’ve just been incredibly busy! I’m sorry I’ve been away so long! 😦
First, I’ve made a card for Freshly Made Sketches #238. Almost all of my supplies for this card came from the Stampin’ Up! Spring Occasions catalog, ending May 31st.
The background is Crisp Cantaloupe, the flower is Watermelon Wonder, with a black and white center. On top of the flower is a designer gem that I bought at Michaels 🙂 The flower and leaf came from the set Botanical Blooms, it was a bundle that came with a die set. I didn’t get the set at first, but after a number of people sent in cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids with these elements, I had to get it!
The leaf is Mossy Meadow, as well as the sentiment background. The sentiment came from a free Sale-A- Bration set called What I Love. I added one of the Stampin’ Up! doilies, cut to fit 🙂 It’s hard to see, but on top of the background color, I added a layer of vellum from the Sale-A- Bration catalog that was free at the time, and layered the whole thing onto the new thick Whisper White cardstock.
I made this card for my grandson’s Pre-K teacher 🙂 She was wonderful, and my grandson really liked her, he had a great time in her class! 🙂
Now, because I am so far behind, I’m going to jump right into the Father’s Day cards! 🙂 Some of these cards came in during March!
