Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day

Hello Everyone ~ I have a One Color Wonder today with the Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day idea.

I was a designing fool yesterday.  I managed to get 5 sample cards and my Facebook Live sample created.  I also went to do my grocery pick up.  I am loving playing with the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle for this class.  I did some research and did you know that sunflowers come in other colors than the yellow we usually see?  Wait until you see some of the colors I used for the sunflowers on my cards for the Inspiration in the Mail ~ Hello Fall online card class!

Today I will walk and then we have water aerobics.  I also have a vet appointment for Bijou as she is due for shots.  I will work on some other cards in between.  I am hoping to get a few more cards made so I can decide which ones to use for the class.  If you have any ideas send them my way!

I used a die to make a stencil for today’s card.  The video shows you how to do that.  I also used a sneak peek for an upcoming class embellishment.  Here is the video for the Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day creation.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I was hoping for some rain last night.  We had thunder all around us and it was pretty intense.  All we got as a little sprinkle!  Not sure when we will get some rain as we need it.  Have a Wonderful Wednesday and will you try the stencil idea like I used for the Pretty Peacock Beautiful Day idea?
