Well we just had a pretty ‘iffy’ weather weekend. It kept calling for rain on Saturday so we ditched the BBQ idea and just went out to the park for a bike ride – 27.5 km. We did have a few raindrops hit us off and on but just drops – until we left at 5:30. It rained then and it poured rain on Sunday with wild winds….which flattened my peonies and knocked off the orange iris – now in a vase on my counter! Today was a lovely day which was really nice because my sister had a doctor’s appointment in
and I went with her. We made it an all day affair with a trip to Len Mills
(discount fabric and everything else store) and to Fabricland and even a walk
through Michaels but neither one of us bought anything there. It was a long day
but a good day. London
Today’s card is another Stamping Bella stamp – but an oldie so not sure it is still available as I don’t go to her site anymore……her shipping costs to Canada are the same as to Europe so I don’t even look at it anymore…..but I still love her stamps that I do have.
Once again the image was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and the background was sponged with pink and yellow chalk. It was die cut with a Spellbinder’s die and left in the die while I did the chalking which leave a white crisp border. Glossy Accents was added to the lollipop to make it look like candy. Wink of Stella was added to the dress to give it a bit of a shimmer. The sentiment was die cut with a very old Cuttlebug die. The background on the right was run through a Cuttlebug slim die. The paper on the right was hand stamped by a few different stamps I have. The light purple just needed a little something extra so the butterflies seemed to do the trick. The two pieces of cardstock was taped together at the back and then a piece of pale purple ribbon was glued down the seam. The teenage and pre-teen girls seem to really like the stamp.
That’s all for a lovely Monday……. but apparently the lovely weather is coming to an end again as we are under a severe thunderstorm watch…..and even funnel clouds are possible. Hopefully it won’t be too bad of a storm.
