Hey y'all. Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend. I spent all day Saturday stamping, first at a team meeting then in a techniques class. I'm getting new ideas for you, cuz I'm a good friend like that. Didn't get anything stamped to post here but whatcha gonna do? Watched a little Olympics both days and in between laundry and yard-work and what-not around the house yesterday, I finally got two cards made. Woo-Hoo! Not as many as I had hoped to get done, but hey I'll take whatever I can get! I hope your weekend was productive. Oh and I found out my daughter's getting married. Married? Yes, Married. Geesh! HAHAHAHAHA! Everytime I say that it takes me to 16 Candles with Jake and Long Duck Dong. ROFL!!! Are you laughing too? I hope so! Oh and I have about 2 weeks to get the invites done. Guess what you'll be seeing soon on here? :)
OK...slightly less traumatic than the whole getting married is today's card. I used our new leaves set WonderFall and our new Autumn Accents, Leaves, Die. I have to say I really wish they had done this as a framelet and not a die. Getting the stamped image cut out with the die was easy enough, getting the stamped image in the right spot, not so much. Let's just say I was saying some not very nice things while I was making this card last night.

I did something I rarely ever do. I totally changed an element. I generally incorporate all of the elements in a sketch and have only recently started changing the shape of the element. For today's card I omitted the framelet shape completely and used my cut-outs to create kind of a free-form shape there instead. I have to say, I'm pretty excited by how it turned out.
