Hi there! I hope you all are well:) We had a wonderful weekend at a family reunion! My mom and stepdad set the whole thing up, it was at this lovely place called Glen Eyrie. There is a really cool castle there and gorgeous red rocks and huge trees. A very lovely, peaceful place for a reunion. And it was so great to see everyone! Some people I hadn't seen in over 15 years! Super fun & even though our little Ev was pretty sick and my hubby's car broke down, we had a great time anyway. Got home late last night and now playing catch-up, another busy week ahead! The good news is, boys back to school in LESS than a week! I will miss THEM, but not the constant fighting and tattling! ;)
Well, this card is for this week's colourQ! Some of the new Stampin' Up! InColors are in this one, good thing my pack of new cardstock and inks came while I was gone! The colors are:
Island Indigo, just **might** rival Pacific Point for me! A bit more sophisticated, but still that rich blue, LOVE IT! I am liking this year's InColors better than last years. More my speed, I guess...
So, I took the owl cue from the inspiration pic, too. Isn't this the cutest cookie jar? I made a long card, and border punched the edge. Then I matted some old SU! DP onto a mat in the coral color. I used the pennant punch (also new SU!) to make pennants for the top and bottom of the card, then used letter stickers to spell out "friend." For the center, I used the owl punch to build a little owl and a retired stamp for the sentiment. Added a few gems to accent the pennants, and that was it. I hope you like my card! Off to finish some more work before poor little Ev wakes up from his fever-induced nap. :( Poor baby.
Chat soon! xoxox, Noelle
