Pouring Elegance and Simplicity.


The cold has returned fast and furious and it will last for few days still. Certainly I was not looking forward to that and was getting ready to start my seeds. I guess I will put that on hold for now.

I did, however, get some work done in my craft area. I clean up my cabinets, got rid of a lot of stuff that I was keeping for no reason and have kindly requested my husband for a new shelf in the cabinet. I also made some cards and prepared one for CCMC 393 and given the nature of the sketch, I went to the safer route and kept my card extremely clean. I was considering adding a sentiment, but my daughter said, "oh, what a beautiful wedding card" that was enough for me no to put a sentiment. I did use Shimmery White card stock, but I treated it to a vanilla finish with the Shimmer Smooch Spray. The diagonal lines were easily done with the Diagonal Plate for the Score Board and I did them 2" apart. I love the touch of the bold Gold Ribbon and the final touch of the bow. A perfect card for a perfect wedding.

Thank you for visiting today. Be well
