yep, got a few of those -- and they're joyous! Gotta love that!
The best part of the day however, was meeting Peg at the airport and knowing that we'd be working shortly on our project. Both laptops were running at top speed as we each worked on our book and looking at how and where things were moving.
Swine Flu update: sounds like the first case may have been dx in OK. WHO has raised the level to 5. We do hope and pray that people will take the necessary precautions and not think, "this can't happen to me" stand. There are cases in nearly every state surrounding us now.
We had a fabulous evening working on cards, participating in the challenge chat. The Slice and Expression were getting a work out! They both get to stay with me for a few more days before they return home. And yes, we have plans to use them every day while they're here! LOL Lots of plans!
My project last night was cased from www.stillstamping.com I switched things up just a bit and used the Slice to cut the flowers and leaves (basic cards 1,2) I used the crimper on the leaves for a little more texture. Cuttlbug Swiss Dots embossing folder and a Sizzix/SU Flourish embossing plate for the texture on the pot. The SU Scallop Punch and lots of Close to Cocoa ink (SU). All of the paper is SU.
I think my return visit to this project will boast some fun and pretty pastel flowers. It's pretty easy and didn't take as much time as I thought it might.
Well, time to get to work...we've got lots to accomplish today!
