*First Rub-Ons*

Happy Sunday everyone... it's been a beautiful weekend here in Calgary. I sat out on the back deck for a good portion of yesterday afternoon with a good chick book and ended up with a bit of a sunburn on my arms and legs. Silly me. Later in the week we are expecting cooler temperatures and rain, but we'll take this beautiful weather on a long weekend anytime!

We also enjoyed the deck all evening yesterday... we invited friends for dinner and sat outside enjoying our BBQ steak, roasted vegetables, baked potatoes and salad. It was a great evening.

Bruce, unfortunately, had to go into work this morning. Not sure how long he will be there. I am trying to decide between stamping or the mall.... hmmmm

I created this card a few weeks ago to send to my good friend Cindy for her birthday. This was my first attempt at using Rub-Ons. I think it looks better in real life than it does in this photo. I wasn't totally thrilled with it, but I was pleased enough.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Basic Black and Purely Pomegranate
*Image: Stampin' Up!
*Ink: Pallete Noir
*Embellishments: Stampin' Up! Rub-Ons, Bling

Great with the rub on's! What to do? How about mall for a bit before the weekend crowds and then come home and stamp? Sounds like a plan! Have fun whatever you do! You sure will be cute doing it with your new "do"! Take care, Deb
