Just a couple more days …

Even with less than cooperative Michigan summer weather, I’m having a great stay-cation.  I have a couple more days of ‘bumming’ coe90-carnival-murrini-canebefore heading back to the ER this weekend …  In the meantime, we had our coe90 ‘carnival’ pull.  Here is the stack, with the resulting murrini and cane.

We had a family gathering at my sister’s.  The photo has three generations of Thompson folk (my grandfather, uncle, and sister).  It was a great visit,

foiled-sugar-skullI’ made some card bases.  Played with foiling – and had decent results.  I will slowly add sentiments and layers to them.  I also made some ‘inky backgrounds’ in bold colors.  I will emboss an image and tone down the bold coloring – as in the rose card.  I’m also making a few argyle cards – so the 3 diamond backgrounds are layer one … I’ll show the finished cards when I get there …

We had a cloudy ‘pool day’ yesterday.  As always, I’m hoping to squeeze in another before returning to work.  We’ll see … Leaving with a pretty picture DH caught of the moonlight over ‘Purdy Pond’ … Happy Summer Y’all!
