Cherish


I haven't used Baroque Motifs in a while and I thought that it worked well for today's color challenge over at SCS (Wild Wasabi, Taken with Teal, White). It seems like all of my cards made with this set look the same, so I tried to mix it up a bit. Instead of using the whole flourish image, I just used it on the side for the focal image. I stamped the small flowers off once, for a lighter color. I wanted the word *cherish* and the larger flower to stand out. I added a rhinestone brad to the center of the flower and some crystal stickles to the center of the smaller flowers. I used a lot of dimensionals on this card, but really, when don't I use a lot? LOL! I will be posting another design today using some Saltbox stuff so stay tuned.


I promised the girls I would let them swim in the little pool today and it takes a couple of hours to fill up! I guess I better get it up and started before the day gets away from me. This is the last day that I will be watching my son's teacher's daughter until school starts, so my daughter is going to be sad. I guess things will change at the end of the week when my son *finally*gets out of school. Then they will have each other to play with and we will be doing fun stuff. Oh ,the joys of summer! It really doesn't last long when you think about it. Hopefully, we can do something fun every day! I always love those Country Time commercials about summer. It makes me want to savor and enjoy every day! Thanks for fluttering by!
