It's Monday folks. My girls were expecting that 8-12 inches of snow but we only got a slight dusting. They were bummed that we didn't have a snow day. I think that lately I could predict the weather better than the meteorologists if I stood in front of a map and pointed to things with a yard stick. So with that said, I'm officially predicting Spring weather......bring it on! :)
First things first, how about some laundry? It's on my list today. And Karen Lockhart has a new stamp out called Laundry Basket. There are loads of ideas I have for this stamp set, let me show you my first sample today. When I'm coloring in images with Copics, I like to color several of the same image if time allows. I like to work on wide open spaces so that I can use part of the open space to test my colors.....make a color palette of sorts as you can see in the top right corner of my white piece of cardstock. I also like to have my inspiration piece for my chosen colors close by. For this coloring session it was this cute laundry line paper by Cosmo Cricket.
Using some fun color combinations I whipped up a batch of cute cards:
I used Papertrey's Orange Zest ribbon and buttons to add a punch of color. The black and white polka dot paper is from PTI along with the Ocean Tides base cardstock.
I colored my laundry baskets by using the patterned paper as inspiration.
And here are the Copic colors I used:
And here's a fun sentiment I created on my computer. I printed these off before my last computer crashed so I can't remember the particular font I used. The scalloped circles were punched from scraps of the patterned paper, helping to continue the laundry them from the front of the card.
I hope you have loads of fun today. Or maybe you need to just take a load off. Perhaps you should just load up and take off somewhere. Or maybe it's too early on a Monday morning and you feel I'm feeding you a load......... :) ........whatever the case, I hope your week is off to a great start.
Tonight we head off to yet another school board meeting. They will be officially announcing the closing of the girls' school after this year. I am very sad that our country can find ways to support so many in need yet we can't keep our schools open.
