This card is (I think) 8x 3 1/2 inches. I love these long cards. Once again I got out my brass stencils and embossed the same flower image in 3 different colored cardstocks, then lightly sanded them. The stems are embroidery floss, and the ribbon was added to cover up the area where the Swiss dots folder overlapped and the dots are smooshed. If I hadn’t added the blue flower I could have used it for KJ’s color chef challenge.
Supplies: White Daisy, Tulip, Sunny Yellow, (can’t remember what blue that is) Cardstock…all CTMH, Embroidery floss Joanne’s, Swiss Dots embossing folder, Sentiment CTMH, Sunny Yellow ink CTMH, ribbon CTMH
Well our Tuesday started off rainy and chilly at 64 degrees! I feel sorry for my DD who is at a swimming/ water sports camp right now. Ya think I would have been safe signing her up for that kind of camp in mid/late July! I think our max temp for the next couple of days is supposed to be 84. Ok I will stop going ON and ON about the weather!
I started tackling home schooling more than one kid today…If we want to take 3 weeks off in Sept/Oct for grandparents visit we need to start now. So with my DD at camp I started working with the other 2. I will be teaching a second grader, a fourth grader and seventh grader…yikes! They really did enjoy it today and realized how quickly we could do the work. They really liked the math program! I think once we figure things out a bit I will be able to let them self direct somewhat. I already notice what an improvement of attitude they have as they have been out of school for 6 weeks. I know this is not everyone’s cup of tea…but it is what I feel we need to do. Wish me luck!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday!
