The Angel Company came out with a new set this year, "Anchor to the Soul". I fell in love with the set right away. When Susan issued the Simplicity one layer Wednesday challenge yesterday, which was to create a masked background, this set came to mind immediately!
This was truly a card of 'simplicity'... I used my Nestie to create a masking shape. I sponged Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen) for the background, using the template from the Nestie. I then stamped the TAC sentiment and image onto the background using Versafine Brown Ink. Easy Peasy. Pssst..... Don't tell Susan, but I think I'm getting used to this one layer stuff!
On the home front, we got all of the tile off the floor in the kitchen, and nearly all of the grout scraped up. H A R D W O R K!!! Yikes! However, my day got better, when I was able to go pick up my four handmade glass windows from my new friend Nancy, at Love that Glass. I think that divine intervention sent me there. I see a friendship in the making!!! She is so talented, and has a heart of gold. If you are in the market for a special Christmas or Birthday gift, please check out her work. She makes the most beautiful stained glass night lights that sit on a countertop - there is one on my wish list already!!! Please pardon the terrible picture. These doors look 100 times prettier in real life than they do on the 'big' screen!
Hope you are having an awesome Thursday - hang in there everyone - it's almost the weekend! Headed to Collinsville, Ill. to the Rubber Stamp Convention there on Sat. with my BSFF Shirley! Once there, we plan to meet and have lunch with Glitterbabe (Stef) and her friend Vicki, and maybe some other ladies from Farmington! What fun....
See you soon - Patti J.
Food for thought: Even when I have pains, I don't have to be one!
