Falling Into Mother's Day
Clean and Simple FTL sketch when I saw it last week, but life got in the way so I never got to play along. That all changed today :)
I combined it with this week's Color Lab because I just love this colour combination! It's one of my fall back colour combinations so it was great fun play along. Then after loading the Color Lab picture I realized it needed a touch of Baja Breeze - ugh! - so I had to switch out the green twine for blue twine.
My newest Verve order arrived so I was able to use the new flower set called Bloom and Grow and the matching dies. Love my Verve flowers....happy sigh....! The matching leaf die felt a big too large for the card so I used a Martha Stewart Leaf punch instead. The pink layer was cut with the Labels 17 die to form the shape along the bottom. A touch of twine and just had to use my lacy nesties :) Nothing fancy, just a CAS card that you can change the sentiment on and use for all sorts of occasions.
We were treated to a little stretch of sunshine this past week, but it is still stinking cold out! Just heard that this is the coldest April on record for 75 years - I'll vouch for that (not that I've been around for 75 years but that it has been cold this spring LOL!). Upside is the grass doesn't grow very quickly so I've only had to mow twice so far :) Have a great day and hope it involves a bit of stamping!
