Hi everyone! I'm back with a card and absolutely no complaints about the blazing hot day we had yesterday, and you won't hear me tell you how miserably hot it's supposed to be again today either!
On another note, my best friend was sitting outside her office yesterday with a friend when suddenly a car came barreling at them at a high speed. They jumped up and got out of the way just as the guy slammed into the building about 4 feet from where they were! It turns out he was high on meth, the car was stolen, he had his bail bond papers in the car along with some more crystal meth. My friend was so shaken up she had to leave work the rest of the day. The woman sitting with her fell as she ran out of the way and had to go to the doctor to see about her knee. You just never know what will happen, so hug your loved ones today and tell them how much they mean to you!
I really love how today's card turned out. I used an image from Squigglefly called Posy by Gemma Mortlock. I love that it's got all different flowers in it so I could use all kinds of colors. I colored it with Copic markers and notched the corners. After that I just matted it with two different colors of card stock and matched it up with some designer paper. I was going to add a sentiment or maybe wrap some cording around it, but I really liked the clean and simple layout so I left it.
After it sat on my desk for a while, I thought maybe I'd just add a bit of soft speckled background. There is a bit of speckling in the card stock so I think the speckles in the background compliment that. Which do you like best? I can't decide!
We have a box of yard waste bags that we keep on a shelf outside by our patio door. Two little birds have decided that it will make a good place to build a nest. We've been watching them build it for days and now they are comfy in their new home. I snapped a picture of it and if you look carefully you can see the bird sitting in there. I was surprised they picked a place right near the door that has going in and out all the time. I'm looking forward to seeing the baby birds!
Stay cool, and thanks for looking!
