Is it August already?
Summer is flying by, and what a wonderful one we've had in our neck of the woods. I don't think we've had a mosquito yet... and we live beside a river. Fantastic!!! My shade garden is the prettiest it's ever looked. The only downside... I miss our sweet Cassidy running around in it chasing out the snakes and rabbits. How long does it take to get over losing a longtime pet?
Recently, I purchased my first set of Avery Elle stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp, and I'm more than thrilled with them. I've been trying lately to do more cards in a simpler manner so I can mail them in regular envelopes. This set is called Sentimental Too. I used the die to cut the you. I love the long length of these dies and the thinness.
I didn't use the stamps on this card, but an older set I had from Verve that teamed nicely with the die-cut. My card base is a standard white pre-made from Core'dinations and the papers are a mix of older 6x6 pads from My Minds Eye. I used Alterations Thinlits Stitched Rectangles for the image mat and the thin strips. I cut the Praying for labels with Thinlits Labels set. I can't remember where I got the bird image. It's been laying on my desk in a pile of other similar ones, so it was time to put it to use.
Have a happy August 1st, my friends!
Thanks for stopping by!
