The layout was simple and perfect for what I needed. I had already laid out some paper and stamps the other day when I thought I might have time to stamp, but that didn't happen. I got to work right away and of course, the coloring took most of the time. I colored the images using Copic markers. I took all of my color cues from the paper that I used, which is from an older K & Co. slab that I love.
The buttons, stamps and twine are all from Papertrey Ink as well as the cream cardstock. I used my nestabilities to cut and emboss the circle. All of the edges were sponged using Vintage Photo distress Ink by Ranger. The card was feeling a little naked to me, so I added some scallops to the top and bottom of the tilted layer.
Now all I have to do is get them address and mailed, which for these will require a trip to the postoffice so they can be hand-cancelled since they have buttons. I also need to take poor little Emma to the dentist today to have a "pulpectomy" or something like that. It basically is a child's root canal. Poor thing. I don't know how you go from no cavities to that. OH well......
She actually loves the dentist and hopefully things will go well so that it stays that way. She is awfully excited to get "laughing gas" which she hasn't had before. Speaking of my kids, I took some more photos of all of them on Saturday. The leaves were just too pretty to not take advantage of.
Perfect timing....Rowan just woke up from his nap and I need to get him changed and fed so that we can make the appointment. Thanks for fluttering by!
