Here's the early morning planting. The annuals should spread fast and fill in. Hopefully.
Then, this weekend's Operation Write Home sketch #178 seemed to be made just for me. A chance to mix papers with cardstock borders? What's not to love? It's totally in my wheelhouse and the second easy one in a row after two tough ones, so Marlene is now officially my new BFF. :)
Since I've been using vertical sentiments lately, I did decide to flip my cards for this week. As I've been trying to do lately, I made one that's more feminine, one that could be more masculine, then others for kids, but those, I think, could also be age/gender neutral. I seldom worry about using the measurements, although they're always a guidelines help.
This is Bazzill cardstock top, Teresa Collins Tell Your Story paper, the sentiment -- stamped with Memento Teal Zeal and Hero Arts Shadow Soft Pool -- is from MFT. Also, the brads are Candies.
Cardstock top is Bazzill, paper is BoBunny Timepiece Collection, one of my faves, which is (weep) getting impossible to find, and the sentiment is from MFT. Brads, again, are Candies, and I like the way the stripes echoed the base paper.
Bazzill cardstock top, paper is from Echo Park Paradise Beach; the image, which I colored with Copics while at the Oregon Coast a couple weeks ago, is Penny Black; brads are Candies, which I really like because not only do they squish in envelopes, I never have to worry about punching holes in the wrong place for metal brads, which I've definitely been known to do.
Same image, colored while at the coast, BoBunny Barefoot and Bliss collection, which is one of my fave summer papers, so I've stocked up on bunches of pads for the sad day it runs out.
That's it for this week! Thanks for visiting! I read and love all comments. And now I'm going outside to plant more flowers in more areas. (I'm making a blue lobelia river.)
