….did you miss me LOL! I made this card for my daughter who I am packing off to Girl Scout camp today. She will be gone for 5 days. That is the longest she has been away from me (esp. where I cannot contact her). At least they let you send emails to them now. I made up several cards for her to get during camp. I will be posting them on here over the next few days.
I decided that I had better use some of these brass stencils I have. This one was a bee (just in case you didn’t realize). I decided to do his wings in vellum. Then I punched out the flower in CS and vellum as well. A few glue dots, sanding, and stitches later this was the result. The DP was part of some loose 12x12 sheets I got on sale online so I can’t remember what it is!
Supplies: Brass Bee embossing stencil LSS, Flower punch EK Success?, Garden green CS CTMH, Sentiment stamp CTMH, Embroidery floss Joann’s, Vellum Hobby Lobby, Sunflower CS CTMH, Button CTMH.
I need to spend some time visiting everyone's blogs and leaving comments again….it feels like it’s been forever. I have been surfing on Google Reader and soaking up all the wonderful posts though, even if I haven’t been leaving comments.
The weather here in central Iowa has been weird to say the least. They say that this is the first time since the 1800’s we haven’t reached 90 in July. Yesterday afternoon we had the AC shut off and the windows OPEN!! We have a south facing living area which is usually so difficult to keep cool, but the breeze was just gorgeous. Usually in July in the afternoon it is unbearable out on our south facing deck!!! I for one am not complaining though about these temps…it’s like spring all over again.
I hope you are all having a terrific Monday!
