It was a great visit with Phoenix Daisy, and I am already looking forward to her visit next month for 10 days here in Pittsburgh. She even gets to stay with me along for 4 days while her parents take a little side trip.
It will be a first for her and she is excited. Hopefully that excitement transfers over to bedtime when Mommy isn't here. I don't have any trouble at all in San Francisco at bedtime. I am thinking it will be the same here In Pittsburgh.
Now onto my card for today. This one I created as my sample for the color challenge #589 on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara is our hostess and she rose red, elegant eggplant and island indigo for her color trio. Optional this week is to use ribbon.
|rose red, elegant eggplant, island indigo|
I am using some new dies from Reverse Confetti and also their June sketch #37. Love the octopus as well as the little crab stamps and dies.
My background designer paper is from the Stampin-Up “festival of prints” collection. I thought the stripes gave it some nautical appeal. The colors in the paper are island indigo and early espresso. Espresso is a deep rich brown shade but sometimes it wants to photo darker and look black. I am using it as one of my neutrals this week along with very vanilla.
Stamped my octopus and crab in rose red ink and the whale in island indigo ink. To get the eggplant color on the card and this week's optional, I used elegant eggplant ribbon and candy dots. The side flags are cut from early espresso cardstock.
The sentiment is from the Reverse Confetti “seaside” set. I stamped in elegant eggplant ink. I chose this sentiment because Peggy has done a fantastic job for the past 7 years for our team. Goodbye and God bless my sweet friend.
Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time........
