Good Wednesday Morning dear Stampers. I hope you are having a beautiful day.
Here In Calgary, Alberta, Canada there has been so much rain in the last week. When I looked outside our window this morning there was a serious river on our street from all the rain that was pouring down. I am sure the trees and the grass are loving it. & Calgary hasn`t looked this green and fresh in July I am sure.
Oh and then last night.. The house was all nice an quiet and clean (yip.. This rain makes me want to clean my home on the inside) when all of a sudden I heard Reuben screaming on the top of his lungs. He had fallen a sleep, which was a good thing. But then this nasty yellow/black Wasp started stinging him on his back, his leg and his hand.. I felt so deeply sad for him. I know that pain is just horrible. I ran to him as fast as I could but had no idea what I could do for him besides killing that almost stoned wasp. I just held my son and cuddled him, trying not to touch the area`s of where he was stung. So sad! After he got used to the pain I guess, some water and some Calgary Rodeo Stampeding on tv, he was able to relax a bit. He`s better now.. Still a bit stiff in his leg and hand. Poor kid.
I am so pumped up about my card today. I used the beautiful sketch from the Mojo Monday Challenge ;199` and the fun fun color Challenge from the Paper Players `55`. I am so thrilled that I had time to create my card.
I used for the first time my new Occasions Alphabet Stampin Up stamp set. (123598 - $38.95) This set has 26 beautiful stamps. I just love each one of them and I am sure I will use this set a lot.
For the card stock colors I used `Real Red`, Basic grey, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake from Stampin Up. Isn`t that ribbon just the perfect touch for this card. It is the Baja Breeze 1/2 `` Seam Binding Ribbon (122331 - $9.50) It is so easy to create nice looking bows with this ribbon.
Well, there is a lot more to say about my card, but sadly I don`t have the time to write it all down. If you have any questions, pleae contact me. I would love to hear from you.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Inky hugs, Pauline
