Going to the Circus

Hello to you! Man, I wrote my blog post yesterday before Friday the 13th really got going! Soon after I finished, my mom called saying she had to take my dad to the hospital (a recurrence of a heart problem he has), he’s much better now and everything is back to normal - I just talked to him, but poor guy needs to stay in the hospital until he can have another test done on (hopefully) Monday. After that, I found out my husband’s grandmother had fallen, and dislocated her thumb – thank God it wasn’t worse. And… and… then I spoke with my mom and their a/c broke. Really, when it rains it pours. I’m glad yesterday is behind us! In related news, we also got smoked in baseball, but that’s not really anything new.

Let’s hope today is a better day! We have tickets to the circus and are looking forward to it. I just got back from walking my little buddy Dexter, and am about to go get ready (and maybe sneak off to the cabana for a bit).

For your viewing pleasure today I have this:

Water Flowers w wm

This cutie pie from Sarah Kay. I coloured her with Copics, cut her out with my oval nestabilites, and mounted her on an oval that I embossed with an SU embossing folder. I also embossed the strip of yellow cardstock with a new(er) cuttlebug edge embossing folder. The slots in the main layer are cut with the SU slit punch, and I threaded some wal-mart ribbon through it and tied the bow. The designer paper is from K&Company’s Wild Saffron stack and I used the Cornice border punch from my buddy Martha Stewart. The sentiment is from SU and is stamped in Soft Suede then punched out with the Modern Label punch.

I’d like to thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!


Copics used: Skin: E0000, E01, Clothes: R24, R27, R29, B93, B97, Y00, Y02, Watering Can: YG06, G07, Grass: G21, G28, Backgroud: BG0000, BG01, then I went over everything with my W00, and W1 to “dirty” it up a bit.

  1. Absolutely lovely card - so soft and delicate. I really like the looping of the ribbon through the matting - I think I'll try that too!
