The Love Of Friends

Monday, September 14, 2009

Good Morning!!

So again this weekend flew by wayyy too fast. It rained here all Saturday so we couldn't do much, then Sunday was gorgeous, but way too short. We managed to tackle some more cleaning and organizing of our teeny apartment. We burnt all our old CD's onto an external hard drive and into iTunes so we could pack away the CD's and reduce the clutter and I hemmed and put up the new curtains in Syd's bedroom and our living room. Looks like a home now rather than just an apartment. :)

I also managed to create a few cards too. Love productive weekends! I was recently given this beautiful Whiff of Joy stamp by my sweet friend Amy (thanks girl!) and I immediately had to color her up and put her on a card!

Isn't she sweet?! I used Distress Inks for her clothes and hair and some Soft Sky from SU for the background and Sahara Sand for the ground. Then I added some glitter with a Quickie glue pen to her wings and on some of the hearts. After coloring Melinda up, I automatically reached for my K&Company vintage paper stacks because that's what I usually go to and use. But then I had a change of heart since I always use that paper, and went for some old My Mind's Eye paper instead. It was much more colorful and pretty - just like this guardian angel!

Here's a close up of the detail in the image. The little charm was something I found at a CKC Convention a couple of years ago. Came in handy today! LOL

My little girl is home from daycare today. She developed a sore throat over the weekend and her voice has gotten really husky. Poor baby. :( Hopefully it's nothing a bit of rest and medicine can't fix. Thanks for stopping by today!
