Thinking of You.

Hi Everyone!

Well, we have made it to the weekend. How was your week? Mine was good. A little rain and some sunshine. I went out for dinner and margaritas with some friends and that was fabulous. Sometimes, you just have to regroup and refresh, reset the "mom" button, you know? I am sorry I wasn't able to post this yesterday. I ended up spending the day away from home and just wasn't able to do any blogging.



Let's get to today's card, shall we? Just some simple background stamping today with a simple sentiment for this one. I used Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design background stamp with SSS Slate Ink on some Neenah Solar White card stock, followed by another small layer of white edged with SSS Audrey Blue ink. For the next layer, I used Clearly Besotted Eastern Delights to create a small border around the edge of the card stock with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. For the center panel, I used the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. Once the piece was embossed, I used an ink blender and added a bit of Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I decided to run a sanding block lightly over the embossed surface to give it a little bit of a distress look. I added the sentiment, which is from the same Clearly Besotted set. I layered the various pieces as shown with a SSS Fog card base.

That's all for me today! Since I'm a day behind, Coffee Cafe will be posted tomorrow instead of today. I hope you'll come back and see me!
