Hello! Happy Tuesday! Can't believe it's Tuesday already! :> The weekend was a waste for me as I spent Saturday and Sunday not feeling well! No fun but happy to report I am back at it! :> Currently as I type this post I am making turkey soup and working on cinnamon buns! If your wondering how come I am making turkey soup it's because my mom called us up on Sunday and said "come for dinner I had to pull the turkey out of the freezer since I need the room!" She sent me home with lots of leftovers! And cinnamon buns? Well I've never made them with yeast and I am needing a change from muffins and loafs! Plus who doesn't love cinnamon buns?
I was quite excited about the current Lily Pad Kissing Challenge as well it's one of my favorite techniques! So I had to play! Here's my card:
I kissed a leaf from Leaf Clusters with Envelope Pattern Background stamp both by Hero Arts together. I used shabby shutters distress ink with chocolate chip ink by SU. I tied some matching twine by the twinery and added a button. I made this card on Friday and left it sentiment less. I didn't know where to put it so I put the card aside, I considered leaving it sentimentless but it didn't feel finished. Today out of the blue it dawned on me to put a brown strip with the sentiment across. So off I went embossing in white the sentiment while Carter played the piano next to me, maybe a bit with his feet (I told him not to!) And there you go a card that I am happy with using my favorite technique!
Life is pretty good over here lately. Working on more wreaths since I figure if I am going to open up an etsy store I should have a decent inventory, no? Also have to go to the other side of the city to get boxes for shipping! :> It's gotten cold here once again. Been hearing a lot of people complain about wanting winter to end. I don't. I enjoy the excuse to stay home. I enjoy the less busy life I lead in the winter. I love being home making stuff and baking and cooking! And all that without feeling guilty that it's beautiful outside and I should be out and about with the kids! :> Well I am off to feed the family and kneed some dough!
