This is my sad attempt at catching up for neglecting my little piece of the blog-universe. Work has been crazy, what with staff summer vacations, the G20 summit in Toronto and general all around craziness that is working in health care/insurance.
I started my learn to row session here at the local rowing club, and am really enjoying it. It’s a pricey sport, so I haven’t decided if I’m going to continue…and you typically sign up with a group that way you can go out in a 4-person boat, so it depends on when they would want to row, and…of course…work.
In my somewhat spare time, I’ve been addicted to watching the World Cup soccer games. I played soccer for 8 years when I was a kid, and forgot how much I loved it. I think next summer I’ll sign up for a rec league. I was cheering for Italy, but they *cough* were eliminated *wipes tears*. So I need to pick a new team to cheer for now.
Needless to say, I haven’t had much time to play with paper…and when I do, after the cutting and gluing and rhinestone adding; photography, editing and listing; twittering and facebooking…I really didn’t feel like blogging.
So here’s some things that I’ve made in the past little while:
I simply adore these colours! DP is Basic Grey (sorry, I must’ve thrown out the name of the paper); card base is SU Very Vanilla. The stamp is from my stash, and is stamped in SU Old Olive. Ribbon is SU So Saffron, and some paper flowers and a rhinestone brad. I distressed all the edges and used some TH Frayed Burlap distressing ink.
A simple batch of mini note cards- they measure 3x3 and I used up the last of some awesome paper. I really love these colours together! Card base is Bazzil Truffle, I believe. It’s much more rich than SU Chocolate Chip…if paper can be rich.
I used some of my favourite Japanese handmade paper for this bridal shower card. I’ve played a bit with this layout, as you can see from the birthday card above; it’s definitely a keeper! Stamp set is SU Bloom with Happiness.
I’ve got a few custom orders to work on, some birthday cards and another project I hope to share with you soon, AND there’s a soccer game on this afternoon….so I better get moving!
Ciao for now,
ps- all of the cards mentioned are available in my Etsy store!
