You're on my mind

Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of the July 4th weekend. I have hubby and ds home today and dd had camp. I took my son Matthew to the market with me real early so I could avoid the rush of weekend party people!! There is nothing I hate more than the crowds on a holiday weekend of everyone rushing to the market for food. Call me a scrooge but it is really annoying. Like I have said before, I live in a beach community so food for the beach is a necessesity. I get it, but can't we just space ourselves out alittle. Maybe the city can give out numbers and times for everyone to have a turn at the market!! LOL. So enough of my ranting.

I REALLY love the card I made today. Funny thing is, I was straightening out my craft area yesterday and opened a drawer and found all my primas. I just totally forgot about them and have so neglected them. It is so true, out of site out of mind. So I pulled out a tube and based my card around the flowers I pulled out which are now on my card!! Aren't they gorgeous!!

My lockhardt image was stamped onto PTI Cardstock with memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with my copics. Now I have a question here...Is anyone interested in the copics that I use on my cards because I see alot of people do list or take pictures of the colors but I have not so far so I will if you want me too. Then my dsp is from American Crafts which I purchased over at Michaels. My ribbon is also American Crafts, the large brads in the center of the flowers are from SU and the silver baubles are from Stamping Bella. Also my cardstock is all SU and I used Always Artichoke, Bravo Burgandy and Very Vanilla.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fantastic day and thanks so much for your wonderful comments. They really make my day and I love to come back over and visit you too and make new friends!!! Bye for now!!

I guess I didn't realize you had a Matthew too, or I'd forgotten. Fun!

Enjoy your weekend!

Ann - your card is beautiful. I do the same thing if something is out of sight I totally forget about it. I'm sure the primas were happy to be used again.

I know what you mean about the grocery store. I went last night cause I knew today would be horrible.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the 4th!!

LMAO! At you and with you. I avoid the crowds at all times or try to. Sheesh! I did have to run to Target today (no choice) but it wasn't bad at all.

Beautiful card Ann! Love the green and burgandy colors with the soft touch of yellow. Lovely! {{{hugs}}}
