I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
Mine started with a trip up to my birthplace for a family funeral and a couple of days visiting with my siblings and cousins. It’s sad that we seem to only see each other at funerals and weddings these days, but I was happy to spend some time with them all and catch up a bit. I swallowed my pain pills and endured the first long car trip since last summer with the understanding that it was going to require frequent stops along the way. My hubby was very sweet about stopping whenever he saw tears in my eyes and thankfully, I napped a bit too which sped things along a bit. It was all worth it though to offer our condolences and support to my cousin David and his family. Sometimes we just have to set our own problems aside and lend our love and support and I was happy to do that.
Yesterday, My bestie Twyla made the trek (another lengthy car ride) up to St Cloud with me to gather up the last of the supplies that I need for the Stamp A Smile charity card event next weekend. We had a gloomy, rainy day but made the most of it with our shopping extravaganza and lunch. I was ready for bed once we got home though!
Today, in an attempt to push a little tropical punch and warm breezes your way, I have a citrusy pink hello card to share!
My card base is a half sheet of Cameo Coral. Substitute Calypso Coral if you have it since the former is retired. I just have oodles of it so I am using it up . The central panel is a piece of Soft Sky layered with a slightly smaller piece of Best Day Ever DSP. I mounted that to the card then stamped the little dots and stars with Watermelon Wonder in opposing corners on the card. The Hello greeting is stamped in second generation Watermelon Wonder on a 2 inch circle of white. The rest is embellishment. A strip of gold glimmer paper adds a bit of bling along with a few sequins in coordinating colors and three chevrons of Soft Sky point the way to a cheery day!
I hope you have a great week. I’m going to be cutting paper, plotting out card samples and assembling kits a good part of the week in preparation for the big event on Sunday. We have 21 fantastic women signed up to attend and I am so excited to be a part of such a great group of gals. I know they will do a great job of stamping and assembling this year’s cards and of course we have some fun prizes to award. Everyone who comes will get a prize! Whoohoo!!!
See you back here soon I hope!
