Since LOAD is finally completed, I've been busy making the cards I'll need to send while we're in Oregon visiting Sarah, Adam, and Caleb.
Two that I made yesterday fit the current CASual Friday challenge which is to create your own wallpaper or background. It's not something I find particularly easy to do, but the new Simon Says Card Kit has a stamp set that is made for this kind of stamping. I ended up using some images from Papertrey Ink's Floral Frenzy as well.
Even though it's a bit busy for my taste, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. The second card also meets the current ColorQ challenge.
Both cards use sentiments from the Papertrey Ink Stylish Sentiments: Birthday set. This one is a bit more involved, so I added some Studio Calico enamel dots which helped focus on the flowers. I missed the one on the top right corner, but it now has an enamel dot as well. It's too dark to take another photo now!
We had a nice weekend with Matt. He only made it as far as Chicago tonight. Missed his flight by a few minutes because the plane sat on the runway after landing for nearly half an hour. He gets to spend the night in the airport, and will miss another day of work. He's not too pleased, but you're at the mercy of the airlines. I guess there's a possibility tomorrow morning's flight might be delayed due to weather. Fortunately, this is the first time it's happened to him, so I'm hoping it won't discourage other weekends at home.
