Good morning! It's a beautiful morning, despite being Monday, lol. It's a nice, short week at work thanks to a staff development day on Friday. I still have to work all five days, but Friday is kid-free! I hate to admit it, but I do enjoy the staff development days... The time to catch up with fellow teachers, soak in some good teaching practices, and of course the little treat of going out to eat for lunch isn't bad. ;)
My card today uses Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch from yesterday. I have a few ideas for this sketch and some future cards, but for the meantime it worked wonderfully for this little ditty. One of our neighbors hosted a street social on Friday evening, inviting a bunch of the neighbors from our street for a meet and greet at their house. My roommate and I went over planning to just stay for 30 minutes or so, and ended up spending almost 2 1/2 hours chatting! We have some wonderful neighbors and it was great to get to know so many more of them! The neighborhood now has elaborate plans to have a progressive dinner so we can see the insides of every house.
I received some new dp in the mail over the course of last week, which included this MME Fine & Dandy dp. LOVE the colors in this dp pad! They made this card so bright and cheery. I used some brown stitching around the bottom panel, added a frame of glitter around the oval, and a few jewels under the sentiment. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out. Pictures never do this gorgeous aqua color justice.
Thanks all for today. Thanks for stopping by!
