Keepin It Simple Sunday

Hope your weekend is going well. I'm very glad that I got the flower beds tended yesterday, because today the weather has been windy, rainy, and we never saw a temp warmer than 55 degrees. Almost autumnal weather instead of spring-like. I'll take it over those 90s that we'll be seeing sometime in the next week or so...you'll hear no whimpers outta me!

I ended up vegging out in front of the telly last night with the boys. I was too pooped to do anything...I didn't even eat my supper! Today, in the midst of laundry and waiting for Chris to arrive from Southern California, I managed to turn out three cards. This first one is a masculine card that I intend to use for Father's Day.
Base is a 5x7 kraft pre-made; background paper is by DCWV; strip of scrap pale blue cardstock; Ship Collage from The Angel Company (#T-2027) stamped in Art Brown archival ink onto an ATC; antiqued with Distress Inks by Ranger in Old Photo, Tea Dye, & Frayed Burlap.

Can ya guess how much I love my lil cows from The Angel Company? They're just so stinkin cute!! I used a white 4.5x6.5 pre-made base for this one.The paper is a washed aqua from Makin Memories; 3 Prima flowers; 3 REAL Dew Drops (I actually found a bottle locally - God Bless Wade, The Craft Guy, at Ben Franklin in Kaysville, Utah...he always knows just what I need & when I need it!) colored with COPIC #BG72; ATC stamped with an image from An'udder Birthday? from The Angel Company (#T-2642) colored with pencils & odorless mineral spirits; all corners rounded with punch from EK Success.

This one was snagged by Cordell. I get tickled at some of the ones that he begs me for! I'm guessing that this one will end up with his latest girlfriend. Another 4.5x6.5 pre-made base; paper from Provo Craft; cotton lace from The Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby; rhinestone brads; Prima flower with rhinestone center; LOVE stamp from Lil See Ds, stamped with SU Whisper White craft ink.

Now I'm off to figure out what I can eat for dinner. Between the physical work yesterday, the mental work of keeping up with 3 boys by myself for the last two days, the stress of worrying about Chris's safety while he's out riding on a holiday weekend (he's been home now about 30 minutes & the weather beat him up all the way in)...let's just say that food is not only un-appealing, but just not treating my cranky pancreas too well. I'll probably end up with a nice, hot bowl of McCann's Irish Oatmeal, some hot tea, and call it a night.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
