One of those days...

First off, I need to let you all know that we've been without internet since the storms took out the closest tower last Friday night!  So....if I haven't dropped by to see you, that's why.  I'm at my friend Shirley's house right now, borrowing her computer so that I can get some posts going.


Today's card is for the challenge at Impression Obsession.  The challenge is: Colors of Summer.

Supplies:
Impression Obsession Decorate the Season Fence #G8614
Impression Obsession Solid Tree Stamps (sentiment) #3115-XL
Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tumbled Glass
Impression Obsession Grass Border Die #DIE060-I
Flowers and sponge daubers from my stash
Authentique 'Renew' 6 x 6 Bundle (Scraptownlady.com)
Authentique 'Remembrance' 6 x 6 Bundle (Scraptownlady.com)
Perfect Layers Tools for perfect border (see sidebar for details)


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope to be up and running tomorrow or Thursday, but that's what I've said every day since Friday.  Sigh....

Hugs,
Patti J.

So pretty, Patti! I may have to use your "fence and pail of flowers" idea. I've been meaning to make a card with a fence on it for some time now. You've inspired me!

Shirley said...

Wow, Pattie, aren't you the creative lady, and at another Shirley's home!!! Good to see you and your card is just wonderful and beautiful at the same time. Love how you did the DP's to make your images pop! Thanks for playing and good luck in the drawing too. How is the DT going?

IRL this is stunning - was so happy I got to see it in person and glad you were able to post today - I know what it is like to be without internet - NO FUN at all so you know where there is always extra computers.
