Well it's Wendesday and that means you all only have a couple more days to run around like headless chickens to get all your holiday things in order! Boy, I sure am glad I don't have to worry about that! LOL! Instead I get to enjoy a laidback week looking forward (or not) to the 6-10" of snow we are supposed to be getting this weekend! At least I don't have to go anywhere! I just get to enjoy being here with my boys and hubby with our soon to be installed woodstove (TOMORROW!) and stay toasty, eat lots of yummy things like CINNAMON ROLLS and fresh bread and crock pot BBQ beef. Ah yes. Delightful!
Here is a card that I was commissioned to make by one of my friends for her grandmother's 80th birthday. She requested vintage, pink/brown with a hummingbird if possible...so I pulled out my favorite vintage layout and stamp sets "Elements of Style".
The layout for this card is taken from a tutorial by Dawn Griffith (find it here) and I love the look of the distressing with those gorgeous roses. I added the hummingbird from the set stamped in Soft Suede--adding a tiny gem in the eye for a bit of shine. The flowers were colored with my Stampin' Up markers and once everything was done, I lightly sprayed the top layer with my Shimmer spray. Oh how I love the shine that gives an image!
I have two more cards to finish for this order--a simple image-free masculine birthday card and another copy of my card HERE. I'm hoping that the baby will let me finish these during my breaks from cooking today.
I hope you all have a delightful day and a safe holiday weekend! The weather is not looking good for very many of you in the US, so BE CAREFUL!!
