A welcome change in the weather here with overcast & in the 60s this morning. Steve finished up some outside painting & I got my card started. Sun came out about noon & we headed to the lake. Didn't have to rush home since I'm off tomorrow (LOVE being part-time now!), so we had dinner on the lake! They make a great chicken fried steak at the Marina snack bar, so we came in long enough to get the food & then back out on the lake to eat--so fun! Just before we headed home we saw this incredible cloud in the perfectly blue sky, so I snapped a picture.
I was able to finish up my PTI MIM card to use stitching with stamping HERE. My leaves are from Rosie Posie & were inked with Memento Peanut Brittle, Potter's Clay & Morocco, then spritzed with water before stamping & cut out using the matching dies. I painted them with Shimmer Spritz Copper watered down to keep it from being too dark. The sentiment is also PTI--Lovely Layers--stamped in Distress Ink gathered twigs. I finally took the advice to buy sprigs of silk flowers & cut them apart as needed. These were 75% off at JoAnn's, so super inexpensive. I sprayed them with the same Shimmer Spritz & added pearls. The negative die cut is Spellbinders Labels 18 & the embossing folder is Stampin' Up by Sizzix. I'm so glad to have one Thanksgiving card done as that holiday seems to always sneak up on me. Thanks for all your sweet comments that really do make my day. Have a great week!
