Hi! It's sunflowers today. Are sunflowers still blooming? My garden is looking pretty soggy and I've cut back most everything. My new stamp room window should be behind the card in this photo, but we haven't had a weekday dry enough for the guys to cut a big hole in the side of the house. Still loving my clean, tidy room, though, with all the space I've reclaimed by clearing out the excess. It does wonders for the joy of stamping!
This (once again) clean and simple card uses a Bugaboo digi called Funky Flower Blocks. The printed image just happened to fit perfectly in an old Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles die. I popped that up over a gingham border and added a die cut "hi".
This is my first time to use Nuvo Crystal Drops and I love them. They dry hard, not tacky. Achieving perfect little uniform drops is always a challenge for me with any of this type of product, but I'm probably too picky. The color I used is called Neptune.
On a sad note, our local paper crafts store is closing. I know! I could just cry! Big sales going on so I picked up a few products -- nothing that will overstock my stamp room, though. A few dies of the type I'll use frequently, glitter, sequins, Bazzill cardstock, more Nuvo drops... No stamps or designer paper. Can you believe my self control? I want to keep my room looking good.
One last thing... Many of you know our Wally dog had knee surgery recently and we've been keeping busy with his recovery therapy. Well, he finally gets to go swimming again! That's a big deal to Wally and LuLu. He's going 2-3 times a week now, increasing the length and time of his swims a little bit each trip. We're also still doing the three leash walks each day, so you can imagine how time consuming it all is. Plus, it's raining. One has to keep priorities straight, and Wally and LuLu are definitely priorities. Here's our happy wet Wally:
And another with LuLu bringing up the rear:
Wally is doing amazingly well. Better than he's been in years, with no signs of discomfort or stiffness after exercise. We'll continue with patience and dedication... Have a happy day!
