Embellish(ed) Get Well wishes...




Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope your weekends are all going well. Today, I am FINALLY playing along with the Embellish Magazine color challenge. I love everything about this magazine and Ashley's blog. It's just all so fresh and trendy - but not in a neon leg warmers way! LOL I really like the colors we were to use, too!





My stamp table  was borrowed for a yard sale and so I decided that the kitchen table would have to work. Well, it took my forever to get this card made! I don't start stamping with a clear idea. I just kinda look at my stuff and think. and think.and think. Then something comes to me and I do it. Well, I couldn't look at my stuff today since it was upstairs in the craft room and I was downstairs in the kitchen. It was nuts, but I do think that I like what resulted. I made it with a sick friend in mind. We're taking her family dinner tonight, so I wanted a little card to go along with it. Since I can't seem to make an A2 card to save my life, this is another 51/4 by 5 1/4 card. I just love this size. hee hee.

OK, well i'm off to clean the kitchen table up before the family gets home. Alex had a riding lesson today, so they're all at the stables. Have a great one!
