Whew, what a week this has been! I can't believe I made it to Saturday! The week started out with my 3-day guest designer opportunity with JustRite Stampers, then spiked to an even greater high with a message from Linda Elbourne that I had made the Simon Says Stamp and Show design team. So I was riding high at the beginning of the week, but with mixed emotions because I was also getting my 21 year old daughter ready to go back to college for her senior year. She left yesterday and the house seems so empty with just the DH and me. So Friday was a bit of a let down, but I had the joy of working on this card Friday night when I got home from work.
Our hostess for August at Our Creative Corner is Wendy Janson. She has kicked off the month with a wonderful challenge, something that is close to my crafty little heart, embossing. I had so much fun putzing around with this card last night. No pressure, just try this, try that, see what looks good, and this is what I came up with. It made me happy and I finished it off with a deep sign of satisfaction! I also targeted this card to fit the challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room, one of my absolute favorite challenge blogs! This week the challenge is House & Home and there is an inspiration photo with the colors soft blue, cream, white and brown. Ewww, I just realized I didn't really include pure white - well, look closely at the flowers - is there some white in there?
