We had a great few days at the lake & thought I'd share some pictures. The full moon was really breathtaking, but hard to capture.
I always got out of the water first, so no picture of me in the lake, but I can assure you I looked just as relaxed & happy as hubby!
Did a few chores & since I have one more day off, decided to save the rest for tomorrow--I'm good at that--LOL!
I had the idea to make my left over Penny Black balloon dies (uplifting, 51-004) from THIS CARD into fancy balloons, but didn't have time before we left. Tonight I looked through my Penny Black stamps & found 3 flourish type ones I could use parts of: deco (3978K), footnote (3857H), butterfly symphony (30-148). After white embossing, I rubbed each with a metallic Gelato & blended with my finger. I used Cathy's technique of wiping the embossed area with a wet wipe. The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug & the Penny Black sentiment, stamped in Brilliance Starlight Black on vellum, is from eloquence (30-162). The balloons are mounted with foam tape & adorned with a clear sticker that is fairly flat, so I think this card will be easily mailed. I'm really glad you took time to come by.
I'll be catching up on your work in the next few days.
