I thought I would share a picture of my car windshield to give you an idea of the damage. Today they came and fixed it and tomorrow they are suppose to send an adjustor to see the rest of the damage. Hopefully I will be able to head home in a few days. In the meantime, Trisha and I are really enjoying our time together. Last night she was working on her scrapbook pages when she looked at me and said, ”We need to make another trip to Archiver’s” so we made a quick trip there this afternoon. They have a really nice store here and since this store has an over abundance of paper , they are having a special and all paper, along with stickers and embellishments, are 50% off. Today I loaded up with some Basic Grey papers (yes, April, I picked up some for you, too). I couldn’t resist using it for the Our Daily Bread Challenge of Summer.
To me Summer is flowers and butterflies and watching for the hummingbirds. I used an image from the Bird and Butterfly Labels from ODBD and stamped it in black on light blue cardstock. I fussy cut it and added tan and black layers using the coordinating Spellbinders’ Label Eighteen. Behind the image is a rectangle of Swanky Grand cardstock from Basic Grey’s Little Black Dress collection. It is so lacy and vintage looking. I created the background design on the tan card base by stamping this lovely butterfly image from ODBD’s Faith Collection. The sentiment is from their Mini Tags 3 set. I don’t have a lot of ribbon with me so I used my black stamp pad to color some cream seam binding ribbon that I added to the card, along with some flowers and pearls.
