Elegant

Good Morning,

Sorry I've been away for a couple of days. Kristen left yesterday morning so I worked on housework and laundry yesterday. It kinda got away from me when she was here. It was more fun to go and do stuff than think about housework. lol Any excuse is better than no excuse!

I did this card up last week. It was so quick and perty...no I didn't spell it wrong...it was intentional.

I'll start with the flowers. These were made using the stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. Fargocat Designs should have their entire order arriving this week. Customs delayed them but they are travelling again. They are awesome. Stamped six flowers the same size in two different colors and then die cut them out. No cutting...just ran then through my Cuttlebug. You know, my Cuttlebug gets a lot of use. Probably one of my most usefull tools. The centres are some brads I had picked up some time ago from Recollections.

Next up the oval. Used the Lacey oval die from Spellbinders. Cut it, embossed it and while it was still in the die I stenciled it with Tim Holtz Weathered Wood Ink. Comes out pretty gorgeous. The other two ovals were also Spellbinders from their classic oval sets. Stamped and sponged the edges of that one with the same Weathered Wood ink. I didn't have an oval large enough to fit bind the Lacey oval so I free hand cut one so brown cardstock would show through the little trianges in the Lacey oval. A nice satin bow on the right side. Lastly the paper is from Basic Grey - Pyrus. Fargocat Designs has received in her order of Basic Grey Wander and Jovial. While you're over there check out her Martha Stewart punches and there are some upcoming classes as well.


So for me today I'm going to finish up a little bit more housework and go tot he dreaded post office but I've got a package to send to my Xavier. I made some Halloween decorations so I really do need to get the package out.  It's all boxed just need to take pictures of the decorations and I'll be all set.

I'll be back tomorrow to share those.

Yvonne
