Colorful Seasons Sunset by Stampin’ Up

Hello Everyone ~ Wait until you see my Colorful Seasons Sunset by Stampin’ Up creation today!

Well yesterday was a long day.  I left Jess’ at 9:30 am and did not get to New Bern until 6:30.  There was a major accident on 95 in Virginia before you enter into North Carolina.  They shut down 95 South and were directing everyone onto 301.  It took me 2 hours to go 2 miles.  Once I was on 301 it was slow going as all the 18 Wheelers were also on it.  We had to go about 7 miles which took a long time also.  Needless to say I was very tired and had to unload the car.  After I got the car unloaded I picked up Bijou.  She was glad to see me.  She was very tired and spent the evening sleeping in the chair next to me.  I went to bed early as I had to get up early to take the car in to be serviced.  Later in the morning Barb and I are headed to Jacksonville and the cabinet maker.  I have several appointments that I need to make for this week.  Top priority is to get car insurance and start studying for my license test.

Today I have a perfect card for someone who might be a little stressed ~ like me right now.  I used the Colorful Seasons stamp set and created a sunset by sponging ink on the base of my panel.  I used Daffodil Delight, Mango Medley, and Rich Razzleberry for the sunset.  I chose the colors by looking at sunset pictures online.  After I had the color sponged on, I used the branch stem and Early Espresso to add the branch in the upper right hand corner.  I then used Blushing Bride ink to add the flowers to the branch.  I used some of the retired Rich Razzleberry velvet ribbon to add a strip and bow down the left hand side of the panel.  I added this panel to a Rich Razzleberry card base.  Here is the completed Colorful Seasons Sunset by Stampin’ Up creation.

    Glad you are settling. Sorry that your first experience will be a hurricane! We are worried up here too. I’ll think safe thoughts for you and when it blows up here, give me a thought or two!
    Stay safe.
