I had a blast at my cousin's Pampered Chef party last night. My aunt and another cousin were there, so it added up to a bunch a laughing and good times. I couldn't sample any of the food prepared due to my food allergies, but it sure smelled good! And I got some fun kitchen goodies that I can't wait to use! This evening, I'm off to the local farmer's market. There's nothing quite like fresh fruits and veggies... especially during the summer! I like to stock up on white nectarines, plums, asparagus, and any other fruit that just looks particularly scrumptious that trip. I have tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, green beans, and jalapeno growing like crazy in my back yard, so I just buy the things I don't have. :)
I sat down this afternoon determined to crank out this week's Mojo Monday sketch. There were a bunch of layers this week that were slightly intimidating, but not overwhelming. Plus, I just got my new SU catty and I love the color combinations they have going in their samples! Totally up my alley! I stole this combo straight out of the catty and will definitely play with it some more in the future.
I stamped the branch Plain Jane from Verve in Versamark all over the background purple. If you know me at all as a card-maker, you know that circles are the bain of my existence. lol So, I quickly jumped into "what else can I do with that circle" mode. Enter my favorite combo- bow, button, twine! It always saves the day!
Overall, a simple card today, but I'm pleased with how it turned out.
