*Chilly Monday*

Good morning everyone... we have a chilly forecast for at least the next week. I guess I will be spending more and more time in socks. Sigh. I really hate wearing socks and anything other than flipflops. Flipflops rule.

I didn't manage to get any crafting done at all this past weekend. Bruce and I ran a few errands yesterday and then had his Dad over for supper. Last night we had our weekly bowling league. I am so glad we joined this year. I've talked about it for a long time and I am enjoying it so much. If there is anyone in Calgary interested in a fun league on Sunday nights, we are still looking for a fifth person for our team.

I am in love with this card... I have seen a lot of Tri-Shutter cards and found a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers that helped me to put this card together. It's a bit time consuming to cut all of the small panels, but the base of the card itself is pretty quick and easy to put together.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranate, Certainly Celery, Elegant Eggplant
*Patterned Paper: Retired Stampin' Up!
*Images: Penny Black sentiment
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Purely Pomegranate
*Tools: Big Shot; Stampin' Up! Daisy #2 Sizzix Die
*Embellishments: Kaiser Pearls; Celery grosgrain ribbon; Doodlebug flocked brad

This card folds flat in to a standard card size for mailing.
