Today my daughter and I experienced "College Orientation - Day 1." Some helpful information - some I could have read on my own faster. A nice BBQ and a lovely rain shower (not at the same time), and tomorrow is Day 2. It is so beautiful here - the mountains still have snow on them. But - it was 92 degrees today, so the rain was a welcome respite, even if only for a few minutes. Apartment hunting begins Friday.
So -- I had been reading some gallery and blog posts about using things that were on your desk. And yesterday (actually a few days ago when I "pre-posted" this) I cleaned off my desk and organized my stamp room better. But I had these two images still in the "Do Something With This" pile, so I decided to make a card with scraps and what I had not yet put away. And here it is:
I used Paulette's word art from TLC Creations (a past freebie!) with Hambo Stamps' Heart Basket. Click on the photo and you can see the Starfire Glitter I added to the hearts. The button is a little chipboard heart I had and it is threaded with Real Red CS. It is layered on Riding Hood Red CS cut out with a Spellbinders Rectangle Nestie, but the edges are hard to see against the Red Prints DP. I colored my basket with Copic markers. The printed ribbon and red brads are from Hobby Lobby. I paper pierced the upper lefthand corner. Not bad for what was "lying around."
Today we will finish the Orientation meetings for fall - and tonight I am taking my daughter to one of my favorite restaurants in Salt Lake City. Hope you all are having a wonderful day!
