My vacation begins after work this afternoon, whohoo!!
I’ll be spending a week at the cottage my family rents each year. I’ve got some posts planned for while I’m away, so don’t miss me too much :)
We usually go on Saturdays, but this year my dad will take the boat up on his own, while my sister, mom and I attend my parents’ high school reunion. My uncle who is retired from play professional basketball is coming in from Victoria, British Columbia to play in the Alumni Basketball game. AND I will finally be able to reveal my big project, because I will also be attending a shower for one of my good friends. On Sunday, we’ll head up to the cottage with the dog.
So onto The Character Cafe Feature Friday.
One of the July images that everyone has been raving about is the Sunflower, so I knew I wanted to play with it for a thank you card my mom needed.
This card turned out a little more ‘country’ than I had planned; actually, this card didn’t come together in a traditional way…but I’m content with the results.
I initially planned on using last week’s WSC sketch, but I didn’t work out as I had hoped. This card is smaller, 4 1/4” square. I had about 4 different kinds of paper for the background, but they were all too busy and took away from the image, so I settled on this green paper from my stash.
The image is coloured with watercolours; I like the gingham ribbon and I think that is what makes this “country”. I forgot to take a pic of the inside, but there’s a simple “thanks” stamped there.
Make sure to hop around to the rest of The Character Cafe Design team to see their work this week!
Ciao for now,
