A Hello There Card

It’s hard to know how to plan ahead this summer. Last weekend this weekend looked like perfect weather; now it is raining and will continue to rain off and on all weekend. There goes the BBQ get together with family. Oh well, I’m still on the disabled list (according to hubby) but I’m referring to it as the ‘restricted’ list so I guess a couple more quiet days will help heal the ham string.

        Today’s card is another one made from scraps of left over paper a die and then a sentiment added.

The background was made by cutting little strips of paper ½” wide and various lengths. Then they were glued to a white piece of paper leaving a small gap between the ends and each other…sort of like tile. This time I stuck to all shades of blue and yellow which is a common combination, especially in the quilting world. Once the strips were all glued down it was set aside to dry and then it was trimmed to 4” x 5 ¼” and glued to a yellow card base.

The flower was die cut and then glued on with a yellow gem added to the centre of the flower. The sentiment and the stitched oval are from Stampin’ Up. The sentiment was inked up with Rangers Big and Juicy stamp pad so it has two colours on it….it used to have four but the inks merged together – grrrrr.

        That’s all for a wet and cool Friday, June 22, 2018. Have a great weekend everyone.
