I have to start by saying I must really like the card I posted yesterday. I realized last night that I also posted it in June. Oh my goodness, I am not sure what happened there. I have a pile of cards on my desk to put on my blog and some how that card was put in the wrong pile. Lately, that is how my life is going. LOL
I love to color so when I saw the Bright Wishes stamp set I knew I wanted it. The sentiments in this stamp set are perfect for wishing people the best, wishes coming true, brighter days, how much you care and you're never too old to wish.
I used the Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pens to color this card. I ended up coloring quite a few of these using different colors for the flowers. It is amazing how changing colors can totally change the look of a card.
To make this card you will need the following products:
Berry Burst Cardstock #144243
- cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
Old Olive Cardstock #100702
- cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
Whisper White Cardstock #100730
- cut at 3 3/4" x 5"
What colors would you use for your flowers?
Since we got back from Texas, life has been even busier. I thought life was going to slow down, boy was I wrong. While we were away, Erica made the decision to move to Michigan to be around my family. I will admit, I am a little jealous. She will be living with my niece, which is great, so she can help her out with expenses.
We have been going through Erica's things trying to figure out what to take, what to leave home and what to get rid of. You don't realize how much stuff you have until you start going through things. I hate to see when I have to go through my craft room. LOL
Erica is going to Michigan today for a job interview tomorrow. If you get a chance, can you please say a little prayer for her. I know she will do great.
I told my girls could they possibly get any further apart? Emily is in Texas and now Erica will be in Michigan. Mark and I will have to get use to being empty nesters. Our house is going to be so quiet.
Mark and I are also going to start going through each room in the house as if we are downsizing and have to get rid of things. Emily was telling me that she was reading an article about decluttering and you need to ask yourself two questions. Does the item bring you joy and if it was in a store today, would you buy it? Great questions! I think I am going to be getting rid of a lot of stuff.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a terrific Thursday!
