Trendy Neighbor – Almost Artisan

Posted on

This morning started by taking the boys to Subway for a free Egg Muffin Melt sandwich.  I got an e-mail last night saying that today was free breakfast Tuesday.  I have to say it was really good and the nutritional information wasn’t bad at all.  Then we headed to the library to get some more books.  We’ve been reading up a storm.  I just finished The Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Heidi W. Durrow.  It was fantastic and I finished it in just a few days.  Today I picked up a book on Free-Range Parenting called Free-Range Kids, How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry) by Lenore Skenazy and The Overnight  Socialite by Bridie Clark.

This is the last of my Artisan Award cards that I have to show you.  I hope you have enjoyed my projects thus far.  This is by far the favorite of all of the cards I made.  The base is Bashful Blue and is layered with Not Quite Navy and Whisper White.  I sponged on the clouds in Bashful Blue using a Scallop Circle as a mask.  I then added the paper piercing.  I cut various circles from Old Olive Pattern Prints dsp with my circle scissors and then sponged, distressed and paper pierced them.  I then added houses and clouds from Good Neighbor, trees from Trendy Trees and squirrels and hello from Pendant Park. I tied it all together with a Bashful Blue satin ribbon.   

Well it’s time to get the boys outside before the rain starts.  Have a great Tuesday!
