Another Monday. . . . .

. . . Not my favorite day of the week but I'm getting closer and closer to a 10 day vacation. It starts on August 15 and I can't wait! Not going anywhere, just staying home to enjoy some of the last days of summer. Hate to see it end! When you live in Minnesota, you have to revel in the warm weather days because before ya know it, you're shoveling snow again, which is my LEAST favorite thing to do! Geez, I sound kinda crabby today, don't I? Sorry about that! I am now putting a smile back on my face! :) <----- see?

I do have a card to show you today. I used the new Artists Butterfly again. This time I wanted to use bright, bold colors, so I colored it with Copics. I love pink and teal together!



For the background, I stamped Old Letter Writing and the Graph Background using a teal colored ink from ColorBox. I'm loving the Hero Hues Pearls! You can always find ones that go so well with whatever color you're using!

One more thing. My Hero Hostess, sister, Jenny is having a little give away on her blog. Click here for your chance to win a Hero Arts stamp set! Woo, hoo! Gotta love that! Thanks, Jenny!

I hope everyone has a lovely day!

Beautiful card Barb. I just love those colours together. You have done an awesome job on this one.... Not long to the holiday... Enjoy being on a break... sometimes it is great to stay home - we did it last summer and got so much done round the house.

Barb, I'm with you on Mondays. Don't like them, never have. :) So glad you get to take some time off. I'm also like you because I do not like winter/snow! I love summer days even when they are hot. I often wonder why I live in Indiana. heehee... :)
Your card is beautiful! Love the pink and teal together!

Anne said...

Hi, Barb! Beautiful card! Love that butterfly! We used to live near South Bend and moved down here to North Carolina to get away from the snow. Unfortunately, it has been nearly 100 degrees most of the summer! Ack! ;-)
