Can you believe that we are into August already? Where did July go? As much as I would like to see Sept get here (we are taking a trip out to Maine) I still want to enjoy the summer. Weather hasn't been all that summerish if you kwim! Lots of rainy days and cooler temps, now I don't want hot hot weather, but mid 70's, sunshine and a slight breeze- is that too much to ask? Well that is the weather for this weekend- can't wait.
I have another card to share with you today. I had a request for a wedding shower - I never know what to do for those, anyway this is what I came up with. I really enjoy making a card that doesn't require colouring. Mind you I love to use my pencils and copics, but this is a nice change from it.
This was pretty simple actually, paper, punches, pearls, flowers, ribbon and die cut!
I used an EK Success border punch as well as a Spellbinder
fancy tags three. I think the paper is by Prima. I sponged some antique linen to give it a bit of vintage feel to the punched border as well as the tag tie. Sentiment is from Verve - set is called Small Phrases - great set to have I have used this many times.
Finished off with some white ribbon, pearls, flower and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts (UK - love this online store, if you need flowers this is the place to purchase them. Shipping is cheap and they ship fast. I had my pkg in a week).
Okay, off to start my day, need to get my potato salad made. Mark and his girlfriend are coming home today, can't wait to see them, it's been a month. Day shaping up great weather wise, lots of birds in the backyard already - hummingbirds, cardinals, blue jays, sparrows, finches, we will have lots of laughs (as always), great food as well (bbq chicken, potato salad, corn on the cob, wine!) and just a lot of family loving!
Enjoy your weekend, it's a long one for us Canadian's, and I also took Tuesday off, so a 4 day weekend, love it!
Till next time,
