Labor Day Projects

More than a few thank you's to send, as you can see... Here is one. This is based on a card by Kay Kalthoff I found I think on her blog, because I don't see it on SCS. Anyway, she did a beautiful sympathy card in yellow and gray that is loosely recreated in this design. Hers was very elegant, mine leans more toward cute. These are just simple notecards - I made them from Charbonne DSP, to fit the 3X3 (yes, I love them - someday I will move on) envelopes. The hole in the front is1 3/8, then I punched a 1 1/4" hole in basic grey, and punched the scallop around it. I then lightly traced the hole onto a sheet of us vanilla on the inside, and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the little flower from Seeing Spots on the inside. Then I erased my line, and voila, cute easy notes from half a sheet of DSP (4 notes). The dimensions are 5.5 x 3 for the DSP, 2.25 x 2.75 for the vanilla, and scraps for the basic grey. Who doesn't love this beautiful grey? Who knew I could love a color like grey... Didn't think I had it in me. But this I love. Hope u do 2.

My computer man brought me a new hard drive - the old one was a total loss. I haven't had the heart yet to see if I backed up Itunes recently. Pray! However, most of my pictures, etc were there, and I reinstalled Photoshop without a hitch, so maybe the message here is a minimilist new hard drive, less junk in my files and learning to back up early & often! I also decided I didn't need to pay for Quicken, and will start keeping my checkbook in Excel. The new me. Talk to you tomorrow. Gonna go blog hopping and have some labor day ribs!!
