Hello Blogger Friends!! Long time no post (lol)!!! I have been busy with the beginning of year stuff at our church pre-school. Spent some long days there the past week.
We added a new class as well as built a new room this year. That part was taken care of by some skilled craftsmen. I was organizing our supplies and decorating 2 hallways for the start of school.
I really like how the hallways turned out. I went with a fall theme with cute scarecrows, pumpkins and leaves. This theme will be good through Thanksgiving.
The organization of supplies is still not done. I put everything in plastic containers and labeled the containers. So when we need something we know right where to look. I just have the construction paper to separate by color.
So that's where I have been but I am back creating with my first love of card making. This one was done using the colors from the color challenge #547 on Splitcoststampers.
|turquoise, pink pirouette, blackberry bliss|
Barbara was the hostess and she chose tempting turquoise, blackberry bliss and pink pirouette. Our option was to make a card with at least 4 layers. That is definitely covered- I have 9 layers counting my ribbon treatment.
I forgot, then remembered too late to send a friend a birthday card in August. She commented on it to my daughter-in-law and said how much she looks forward to getting my cards each year.
Embarrassing!!! So I made this card to send. Then I still didn't send it. What is wrong with me (lol)!! I just received a birthday card from her in the mail today. Double embarrassment now.
I used an older Sweet Sunday Sketch for my card and I cased myself. Original here.
My background designer paper is from the "park lane" collection from Stampin'-Up. On the white embossed panel I used the Stampin'-Up "fancy fan" folder.
My sending word is a die from Simon Says Stamp. The pot of flowers and sequins are dies from MFT.
Completed my card with some ribbon and turquoise decorative trim. The trim frayed when I cut it but I like the look of it. Well, that's my card for today. time to close this post. I have a counter full of tomatoes to prepare for canning.
So until next time.......God bless.
