Sorry about my late post today. We didn't get home last night until after 12:30 a.m. and I didn't even think about doing this post:( But, I promised a new card for today, so here it is!
This is a digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Milton's Good Book. You can find it here. This is the image I chose when I was "In the Spotlight" for Sweet 'n Sassy last month and I finally got a chance to use it. I colored it with Copics and cut around it. The matting papers are from Papertrey and I used my Swiss Dots folder on the green. The background paper is from Die Cuts With a View. The sentiment is from Verve and was a gift with an order. It's mounted on Dimensionals, as is the image. The ribbon is from Papertrey, also.
I had a great day yesterday with my friends, although we didn't get started on stamping/scrapbooking until about 1:00! I arrived at 9:00 and started spreading my stuff out and getting orgainized, etc. And visiting, of course:) Then I realized I had forgotten acrylic blocks. Oops! So we made a trip to Michael's, which was about 15 minutes away. Our other friend arrived about 11:15 and she had forgotten the pictures that she was going to scrapbook with, but she had pictures from a recent trip to Alaska, so we went back to Michael's to get her a new album so she could work with her new pictures, instead. Of course, by that time it was lunch time, so we stopped at Wendy's to eat. It was after 1:00 by the time we got back. However, I did get five cards done using my limited supplies and card parts. It was very fun. Then another couple and our husbands came later and we had a nice dinner of grilled burgers and brats, etc. and more visiting. A late, but awesome, day for sure! I'll be sharing my cards when I can. Today we have to get ready to celebrate our son's birthday. His birthday is Tuesday, but they'll come over tomorrow. Another great time. I hope everyone has a great Saturday - or whatever day you happen to be reading this!
Edited to add: Thanks to Maki (Makiko Jones) for suggesting I submit this card for Sweet 'n Sassy's Back to School challenge.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!
