I'll allow "pinning" as long as you pull up the post & pin from it for a direct link for others. :-)

Late KISS & two quick projects

I can't believe that it's Wednesday already! I had two cards made on Sunday to share for my KISS post & by the time I was ready to sit down and type it all up, it got CRAZY here! I have dealt with mold in my bedroom (had to have the wall cut out & replaced), had to make sure Cordell was still enrolled for online home school beginning this August (got a phone call from them asking why we had canceled when we DIDN'T - turns out a bitter ex-employee canceled quite a few students out of the system & we were one of them), and trying to keep the boys occupied and out of trouble...all while getting the day-to-day things done. Is summer OVER yet?!? *LOL*

Anyway, here are the cards I made on Sunday. This first one is in Palette Burnt Umber ink, on a natural A2 base, using the tall tree & sentiment from The Angel Company's "Good Timber." It's perfect for masculine cards & this one was for Father's Day.

The next one is using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored pencils, an oval punch, and images from TAC's "Garden Joy."
I kept the oval punch, stamped the image, colored & place it inside the card to peek through.
Now the two quick projects I put together last night (for de-stressing purposes) could qualify for a KISS post, too. This first one, I took a 3x3 cut of paper from The Paper Studio's "Mirabelle" mat stack (Hobby Lobby) for the background, a resin sunflower from Jolee's Boutique (lightly rubbed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink) and put them in this already shabby frame. It's weighty too...iron, I think.This one has a 3x3 opening, too & the frame came already whitewashed, just as you see it. I took another piece of paper from "Mirabelle," a raspberry colored chipboard "N" from a boxed set that I had lying around, and a rose from Jolee's Boutique (rubbed lightly with Vintage Photo Distress Ink). Turned out SO PRETTY & I'm glad I found these frames in a drawer while looking for something else (that was never found)! Don't ya love it when that happens? *LOL*
I was going to put these two pieces in my upcoming boutique, but they look really nice sitting around the house, so I think I'm gonna keep 'em! I've got the blue one on my computer armoire here in the she-cave, right where I can see it, and the sunflower is on a bookcase out in my living room.

I'm working on a special gift now, FOR ONE OF YOU, in honor of my blog's 2nd birthday (TODAY!), so be sure to come back & see what I've made. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
