Day 1

Vacation is over & I made it through day 1 of orientation for my new job.  My brain is on overload!  Since I haven't oriented in 17 years it's a bit stressful.  I know things will begin to make sense over time.
I was able to get my DeNami 1 layer card done last night for the current challenge HERE.  I knew I wanted to use this older flower stamp & mask the area to be colored.  I discovered that temporary adhesive becomes permanent pretty quickly, so this is the second one I did as the mask tore my card the first time around.  Live & learn!  The Distress inks I used are tumbled glass, spun sugar & milled lavender.  I scored a couple lines above & below, stamped a newer DeNami greeting & added pearls.  I very seldom make a 1 layer card, but I plan to try some more.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope your week is going well.  By the way, Sunday is the next DeNami blog hop & I'm participating.  Check it out if you can--Ribbon is the theme.

  1. Hello Greta
    Glad the first day went well even if it is a little mind boggling, I would not concern yourself too much with dotting the i and crossing the t's, as it is always slightly different when you are at the coal face sort of speak!
    Your CAS card is beautiful, great colour combo.
    Smiles:)

  11. How could I have missed your little fur babies Greta!?! So cute ;) Looks like they would be great playmates for my little mini Max. He's a tiny little guy (15" tall & 15" long) but he's full of SPUNK!!! Love him to pieces ;)
