We didn't get much for April showers here in Calgary... it was all April snow. Sigh. I am looking forward to lots of days of sunshine and warmth, green grass and flowers. But for today, we have rain.
I went to Costco with my girlfriend Kelly on Tuesday and bought some flowers to add to my yard. I won't be planting them until later in May as things are still to "iffy" in Calgary for planting. I'd had to have the plants touched by frost and ruined. Kelly will be coming by in a few weeks to help me plant. I just hope I can keep everything alive all summer! I'm not the best at yard work.
I created this card after playing around with my Copics several weeks ago. I found a sketch challenge card I liked at Our Creative Corner (the week of February 28th) so I cut out one of the images I was colouring with my Nestabilities and off I went. The papers are SU Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery and I matched my Copics as best as I could on the Stampendous image. I added some patterned paper from Black River Designs (they're Canadian!!) and trimmed the blue piece with one of my EK Success border punches. I added some bling to the flowers with my Sakura Stardust Gel pen and then a glittered brad by Imaginisce to finish it off. I was going to incorporate pink in to the design but decided that there was just enough pink in the patterned paper.
I'm looking forward to the girls coming by to stamp tomorrow... Allison (who's joining us again for the first time since before Avery was born!), Dianne, Merlie, Shannon and Tracy. Last time we got together, Tracy brought us a sketch to try... I made a card and will post it one of these days (it's in the rotation LOL). Tomorrow night it's my turn to challenge them with a sketch.
Thanks again for popping by! I appreciate you coming to visit!
