Windy Day Saturated Canary

Hello and welcome to my blog!!  I hope you have time for 2 posts today!!

I have to apologize for not keeping up with you on your blogs or Facebook!  My adult kids are still here and 2 more adults moved in for the month until their apartment is ready so it is really chaotic here at my home.  I was stressing a bit with all the constant noise and demands so my husband finally took some time off this past weekend and we left for a quiet easy trip to the Black Hills in South Dakota.  We have not been alone for a few years and we really needed it. The long weekend was so wonderful that I teared up when we left for home. lol  Back to reality and I am struggling to catch up so please know that I think about you but may not be in touch like I should be right now!

Let's get on with a new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog!   I would love it if you could come back later and to see my creation for the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog Hop

 Here is my 7 Kids College Fund DT card that I am sharing with you today.

"Windy Day" by Saturated Canary is colored in Copics with a bit of stickles added to her.  I used Pion papers and distressed the edges and then inked the edges.  

The hearts are a die cut from Memory Box called Twirled Heart.  When I first cut my hearts I saw the middle hearts stacked up on my cutting plate and thought what a great look for a future card too. So I think you get more uses out of this die cut.

My friend gave me this handmade angel which I adore and she looks fabulous on the tag I made.  Because I am selfish I am keeping the tag with the angel when this card is mailed out. lol  The tag/envelope is from Melissa Frances and I chose a green envelope and then distressed around the edges of the tag. On the envelope is another Twisted Hearts die.  My flowers are from WOC and Kort and Godt.  I cut a small piece of Maja paper with the LaLa Land heart banner to adorn the bottom of the florals.

Here is what the tag looks like when it is pulled out of the green envelope.

Here is the inside, all I needed was the paper from Pion, so divine!

    It sounds like you really did need the break and I hope it helped to re-charge your batteries. Perhaps whilst you have so many visitors, you should take some more regular breaks, if you can, even the odd day out might be good for you both. Hugs, Anne x

  9. Kelly, I am so glad you and your husband were able to go away for a weekend together! It sounds like it was perfection. :o) Speaking of perfection... your card is spectacular!
