Happy Ruby Tuesday! Back to the work week for me. One thing I like about three day weekends is that they’re followed by a shortened work week.
The card I’m sharing today is one of Stella’s simpler cards, but it might be one of my favorites. I suspect the ease with which a card comes together has a lot to do with how much I like it in the end. You’d think with everything I have in my stamp room I could just pluck something from here and there and fit it all together – no fuss, no muss. Not so! But today I was in the mood to be easily satisfied, I guess.
I sat down with my morning coffee and stamped this little panel of flowers – Hero Arts Real Flowers – masking and all, in a matter of minutes. I’d planned on using only a panel of green Stella, so the flower colors didn’t matter so much. I simply put together a combo I liked, then – surprise! – look how closely they coordinate with Stella, herself. Okay… new plan. I laid out some scraps and stitched up the sides, added sheer ribbon and a button tied with red string. The tag was turned upward like a smile, and chocolate Bazzill gave it a nice, neutral base. Plenty of time left over to take Wally for a run on the bay!
I hope you had a beautiful weekend. As always, may your Tuesday be Ruby!
