Hi and Happy Monday, everybody! We're gearing up for the LAST week of school here. I just sent my third-grader off to school for his field day today. Ahhhhh, there's nothing like the smell of sunscreen first thing in the morning! (It's waterproof/sweatproof stuff, so I have a feeling the scent is going to be with me for several more handwashings today!) Hat? Check. Sunglasses? Check. Water bottle? Check. Awesome weather forecast? Check. I think he's all set for a super fun day. :D
It's been far too long since I've been able to play along with the Flourishes release week festivities. The DT will start revealing the new sets on Wednesday, and there's a pre-release challenge to play while we wait: Gimme Ten. The challenge is all about 10-minute creations. Boy, do I love quick and easy cards! So easy to jot a quick note in and pop in the mail without the hassle of bubble mailers or extra postage.
Here's my 10-minute creation for today:
Super easy! And making monochromatic cards is so much fun. I used three Flourishes stamp sets to make this card: A Year in Flowers Set 2, Calla Lilies, and Country Charm Labels.
I'm also entering this 10-minute creation over at Julie Koerber's Celebrate Five challenge.
I also enjoyed playing around some more with my sample pack of Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock that I mentioned yesterday (click HERE for details). Today's card features Circus Peanuts (the lighter orange shade) and Candy Corn (the darker orange shade) cardstock. I do like the smooth surface of this cardstock--it takes ink very nicely. I also love having coordinating color shades within the same color family! Makes for effortless monochromatic projects. Anyway, I'll have more on Card Shoppe as the week goes on!
Thanks for stopping by to check out my 10-minute creation. I hope that wherever you are, today brings you your own little slice of bliss!
