I haven’t quite figured out where weekends actually disappear to. I know I was missing from my blog yesterday, but I promise you I was working in the background. I spent a good deal of the weekend reworking my video tutorials to remove copyrighted music and upload them to my YouTube site. Then like many Mother’s Days past I worked on planting my presents. Each year I ask for perennial flowers to add to my garden. Colin helped me pick out some pretty pink and purple flowers to add with the yellows that I already have in the garden. After 5 years of new plants and dividing ones that I’ve had for a while, one of my garden patches is almost complete. I’ll have to add photos when it starts to bloom.
This morning I worked on this clean and simple card. They really get me back into stamping on Monday mornings. For a clean and simple card this one sure has a lot of challenges combined. I used the Rock and Roll technique on my hearts, which was the Clean and Simple Challenge on SCS this morning. I used Dawn’s Raspberry Suite Color Challenge for Week 5. The colors were White, Dark Gray, Medium Pink and Bright Pink. Using Stampin’ Up! colors I used Whisper White, Basic Gray, Pink Passion and Pixie Pink. I pulled the two challenges together by using the sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping. It’s Fall to Layout #41.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and that your day is shaping up to be a good one. I’m off to stamp some more before the school day is over.
