Catch Up...

Popping in today after what has turned into a really busy summer.
If I were to sit down right now and tell you what I did this summer you would probably shake your head and say that isn't busy and mine probably hasn't been as busy as most, but for me I honestly don't know whether I am coming or going these day--lol!

I wanted to share a card I made for my parents for the 67th anniversary using Essentials by Ellen Stay Golden stamps and dies designed by Julie Ebersole.

I stamped my solid pineapple with Papertrey Ink's Saffron Spice and then embossed the detail over top in gold and finally I coloured the pineapple with clear Wink of Stella.  I added a few flowers from the set and the sentiment. I didn't get the right lighting for the photo t picked up a blueish tone. Much brighter and white in real life.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment built from Sugar Pea Designs Celebrate All the Things.

Sounds like your busy summer has flown by...I'm sure things will settle down when your kids are back on campus and the cooler weather sets in :) As always, your creativity always makes me smile!
