The sun came out yesterday afternoon, so it was another leaf raking day for hubby & me while Fritz enjoyed a sunbath on the deck.
Some of you wanted to see my pink & purple outfit, so here you go--not exactly a glamour shot, but they are some of my old, well-loved Nordstrom casual wear. Today was cold & damp--switched to my fleece jacket instead of a sweatshirt for walking Fritz.
Last night I finally sat down to make my card for One Layer Simplicity. As soon as I saw the theme was Peace Be With You I thought of my old (2003) Penny Black stamp The Sound of Snow. My first plan didn't work--turned out all it needed was to be stamped & spritzed with Perfect Pearls! I used Versafine Majestic Blue & added the silver embossed word from Hero Arts set Happy Holly Days. Wish I had better photography skills--this is one of my all-time favorite cards even though I basically did nothing! Hubby likes it so much I'm making them for his cousins using a variety of Versafine inks. I'm also entering Penny Black & More.
I also got another tag made. As soon as I saw Marybeth's Nativity tag on Day 12 of The 25 Days of Christmas Tags, I thought of my 1998 DeNami Manger stamp. My Spellbinder dies are often neglected now, but thought the Lacy Squares was perfect for my tag. Decided to also add the little Noel which is one of my newest DeNami stamps, Christmas Greetings. I stamped in Versafine Onyx Black & then used my fine point applicator to cover it with Diamond Glaze. A bit of Stickles was added to the dots & I tied on a pretty sheer white ribbon.
This one will probably also end up on a card taking center stage. I'm also entering Stamping Sensations. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
