Beautiful morning!

June 6, 2008

What a glorious morning! The sun is shining bright, and the air is crisp and cool...but not so cold that it feels uncomfortable. I drove to work with my sunglasses on, and my window slightly down. The air smells so clean from all the rain we have been getting. Now that I am at work, I am watching the blue sky fighting to keep peeking through amidst some big gray rain clouds. I think the rain clouds are going to be the winners, as we are forecasted for more rain today. I really have one of the best work areas in the station with my huge window that lets in lots of natural light. I love it.

I have some stuff to share with you today! Here is my card for this week's sketch at the CPS blog. We were sponsored by Innovative Stamp Creations this week. I versamarked the background cardstock with some pretty scripted stamps that came in my package. Other product includes Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey paper & letter stickers, Glitz Designs rhinestone strips & hearts, trim from The Embellishment Studio, Doodlebug Designs & American Crafts rub-on letters, and Clearsnap ink.

I also got this card done this week. Most of the product is from the May "My Sweet Spuds" kit. It included all these pretty sequins, but I wasn't quite sure what to do with them at first. Then I had an "aha!" moment, and adhered them all to a circle of cardstock using spray adhesive. After letting it dry for a little bit, it was ready to become part of the tree! I really love how it turned out! Other products include Bazzill cardstock, Hambly & Pink Paislee papers, Heidi Swapp chipboard letters, American Crafts rub-on letters, Glitz Designs rhinestones, and Clearsnap ink.

It is the beginning of June, which means that my cards in the April issue of Cards Magazine can be posted back into galleries and blogs. This is what I contributed to the April issue. I just love this magazine, and find myself flipping through past issues often.

Well, I hope that everyone has a wonderful Friday! I have a busy day ahead of me at work, once our computer guy gets here and fixes something. Gotta love computer problems when you have a lot of work to get done!

Happy day to you,
