I had a very nice weekend. Tim was off in the mountains riding with a bunch of other guys, so I had lots of time to myself. Saturday was National Card Making Day, so I made a few cards. I also spent time reading, walking, scrapbooking and napping.
Lately I've been making several of this style of card. My friend Melissa made a great card with this design, and I've been CASEing her. It's a great design because I can use up some of the scraps of pretty pattern paper I have laying around. Melissa used a torn edge at the bottom of her card, and I've changed it to a scalloped edge. I used a hole punch along my scallop to give it a lace look. it's a great basic design and I"m sure I'll make lots more of these.
This next set of cards I actually did the stamping this summer when I was at my friend Donna's in Myrtle Beach. I don't own this stamp set. I think it belonged to Darcy and both Donna and I stamped some images of it. I didn't do a nice of job coloring the flowers with markers as Donna did, but I think they turned out lovely.
I also got a little scrapbooking done this weekend. Several weeks ago, my SIL, Nikki, e-mailed some pictures of the kids and I had a bunch printed. I started with a couple pictures of my nephew Matthew in the snow. Now I'm working on the same page with pictures of my niece Hannah. I can't show it to you when I'm done because it's going to be my sample page for the upcoming VSBN on splitcoaststampers.com. I used Bordering Blue as the base of the page with the large photo mat in Sage Shadow and accents of More Mustard and Not Quite Navy. For stamps I used Big Piece and Little Pieces and Be Happy. My accessories are brads and eyelets - no ribbon because it's a boy page. The sketch came from my friend Sally.
It was a good weekend.
