My dad was born 104 years ago today. I was so blessed that he lived to be 93 yrs old & was very sharp, independent & loving. I took some of my roses to the cemetery--really miss him.
Thankfully making cards is a wonderful distraction. I've made & sent a lot of them & more are about to go in the mail. First up is a modified slimline card--3 3/4x6 1/2. It wasn't planned, but I just liked how my left over print panel looked with the top & bottom borders slightly bigger than the sides.
the first card, too. I just added a bit more of the Altenew watercolor markers in areas & painted them with Inkon 3 Liquid Pixie Dust. The die cut window is MFT Rectangle Peek a Boo Window & the tiny sentiment is from PFS Delicate Wreath. I found some enamel dots that were just the right colors, so finished off with them. I'm entering Poppystamps August Challenge: Heat Wave. These are definitely warm, summery colors in my book. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
Next is a 50th wedding anniversary card for a lady I used to work with. We had lots of fun times at their house playing games late into the night. My Spellbinders Small Die of the Month kit arrived just in time.
SSS Wednesday via IG & I'm also entering The Snippets Playground & WAW.
MFT Summer School is back! Here's the card I made for Day 1: Visual Triangle. I used my favorite MFT stamp set called Brilliant Butterflies. The colors are from MFT Color Challenge 146. I used these inks: PTI Berry Sorbet & Lovely Lady, Altenew Dew Drops & Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate.
SSS Monday & SSS Wednesday.
Here's my card for MFT Summer School Day 2: Rainbow. Decided to go for a more pastel rainbow & in reverse order.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by. I'm constantly behind in blog reading these days. If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you as soon as I can.
