Happy Monday!

I hope that today finds you well. What a nice but strange weekend we had.

If you've already read my last post you know that Saturday we went to the Beer Cheese Fest in Winchester. It was kinda overcast - but it was not really all that hot out. Yesterday was a nice day. Of course around dinner time Danielle had plans to go out to the movies with her latest love interest. She worked on her hair most of the day - and a lot of you know how that is. Remember the teen years?

We get in the car so I can take her over to the theater and it starts to rain. No, not just rain. The raindrops were falling on the car's roof it sounded like little golf balls. When the drops hit the wind shield they plopped the size of your fist. Of course Danielle did not want to get out of the car, you know - the hair was perfect. And of course just as I was driving away it stopped just as fast as it started. Weird, weird weather they have out here. Now back in California it was either the rain or the wind by season. And none of this humidity. Oh, not like here. There it was hot - 100 degrees hot, and a dry heat. Here it's 80 and humid. And you have to keep the bread in the refrigerator. The weather is something that's very hard to get used to.

Ok, enough of the jabbering. Let's get down to a card!

I finished this card yesterday. Notice how I say finished? Well I started it Friday. I actually stamped the images on Friday and cut them out. Then yesterday I popped it together really quick. I could sit and cut out images all day long. We were sitting out back Friday after dinner just talking and I was cutting these out. I mean really, if you are sitting there you might as well be doing something with your hands, right?

I stamped the images from SU! Playful Petals set in Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Garden Green and Close to Cocoa with their coordinating ink colors. I cut them out and set them aside. I took a piece of Chocolate Chip cs for the base and layered it with More Mustard and a piece of DP from Prima. I ran a piece of the paper from the other side thru the CB with the swirls folder and then inked it with Chocolate Chip ink. I layered that on to the other piece with a length of ribbon.

I then took my nesties label one and cut out 2 of the images with Soft Sky and Creamy Caramel cs and layered them on to the card. I then took the images from Playful Petals and cut them out and adhered them to the card, some with pop dots. Once they were adhered I used my sakura gel pen and gave them some "pop" and I was complete.

So, how do you like it? I think that it turned out kinda cool.

OH!! And BTW ~ did you notice my new signature line? Adorable isn't it?? I was blog hopping the other weekend and I found this blog called Krizzy Designs. She does this kinda thing. The signatures, blogs, headers -- all the cool stuff that I'm not technical with. Maybe pop on over there and take a peek! I'm sure you'll love it!

I'll try to be back this afternoon. I'm not sure what we've got planned today if anything. I do know that my laundry basket is calling.

Have a great afternoon!!
