Today is a bright and sunny morning and we have big plans to make a quick stop at the post office, hit the park and stroll around the town square (I will be strolling as the kids sit in their stroller... have you ever noticed that the more you write the same word - the stranger it looks?? anyhooooo.... I digress....) This weeks fun color swatch from the lovely ladies at the Color Throwdown (yes! I still love saying that word! who doesn't??!!) are these lovely 5 colors above.
I was trying to figure out how to play with it... I think the color that really inspired me was the soft sky - it is a beautiful summery color and so I wanted to create a little summer scene.... but I was too lazy to clean up my craft corner (see post below) and so I decided to play in photoshop. The sentiment reads "Thank you for your kindness" and after printing it out, I added a brad (from American craft) on the main butterfly, some stickles on the butterflies (you can't go wrong with a little stickles on your card) and threw some ribbon (from Offray) and added some Faith dots with my paintbrush.
I like the way this card came out. Its very soft and was made for my friend who just sent us a huge package of goodies. So I am off to the post office, but first need to go and clean up the breakfast mess (my daughter is learning to eat by herself - i think we need to get a dog so that I don't have to mop up 3 times a day (get a tarp on the floor you say? yes her range in throwing food is in the same league as legendary pitcher Nolan Ryan) so... off I go to clean the floor.... again!
Hope you are all doing well and have a chance to get out and play today.
Thanks for visiting!
Ciao for now,
