Just Playin' Around

 Hey there.  So I've been adjusting to being an empty nester.  I think it's helped that I've been super busy at work, but I've hit a few moments here and there where I've really missed my daughter being here.  So I've been filling my time with what I can.  I am working really hard on finishing a blanket for my guest room.  I am on the last round so it should be on the bed soon!

I mentioned recently that I want to start playing with more challenges.  I haven't fit it into my evenings yet because I'm working so late - but I'm getting there!  This card is following the sketch from Just Add Ink.  This was a good sketch for a couple of easy notecards.

This card was easy.  I took a piece of paper from the Garden something matstack and cut it down to 4x5 1/4 and then cut diagonally corner to corner.  I then took a panel of white 4x5 1/4 cardstock, embossed it with an embossing folder from Spellbinders and then adhered the triangle pieces.  I did make 2 cards from this.  I colored another piece of white cardstock with Seafoam ink from Simon Says Stamp and then die cut the flower and leaves.  I did color the flower center and leaves with a darker seafoam color, can't remember the actual name of the color at the moment.

As I said, this is an easy notecard.  I got 2 done in less than hour and that includes photographing and writing notes inside and getting them in the mail.
