Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning,

Just a quick post here - it's actually Thursday night as I am writing this and it's past my bedtime.  I like working 6am to 2pm, but getting up at 4:30 is really tough!

I am sad, my Cricut Expression still hasn't arrived and I did hope it would be here in time for this posting because I wanted to play with BIGGER SVG files!  Oh well, it'll get here and then I can play over the weekend!  So for this card, I made a Mother's Day card using the sketch from Just Us Girls.  They are having a DT call and I'd love to apply, but....


For this card I used Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Magnola, Lovely Tickets, Old Paper and Houndstooth (Plum) Digi-Paper.  They can all be found here at Lindsay's store on MyGrafico.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Milled Ivory, Perfect Plum
Paper:  Houndstooth digi paper LSS
Prismacolor Color Pencils:  Dark Brown, Violet, Limepeel and OMS
Tools:  Coluzzle circle cutter, Textile CB Embossing Folder, White Craft Ink
Embellishments:  Pearls (Recollections)

I hope you like my card and I'm sorry for the quick post.  Thank you so much for visiting.  Please be sure to visit the rest of the team, they all do such amazing work!  Have a great day!
