Holiday Baroque!

Hello All! We're on holidays right now - visiting my mom in Winfield, B.C. (outside of Kelowna). It's beautiful here! The weather is hot, hot, hot, and we're right on Lake Okanagan. Luckily, they have a boat, so we'll be taking the boys out on the lake this weekend. They're having a blast getting spoiled by Grandma & Grandpa!

So, I don't have a lot of time to do blogging for this week, but I'll show you some photos of our trip when I get back on Monday.

For now, here's a card I made before I left. It's a joy fold card a la Beate! I went monochromatic again (my usual thing!). I just think cards look so elegant when you stick with the same colour throughout! I used the Soft Sky Prints designer series paper with Blue Bayou as the card base. I used the Baroque Motifs stamp set with Soft Sky and Blue Bayou ink. I put Dazzling Diamonds glitter in the centers of the flowers using my two-way glue pen. For the circular card closure, I punched out the flower with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch, matted it on Blue Bayou, then punched that out with the 1 3/8 inch punch.

Well, I hope you enjoy this card. I'm going back to play in the beautiful backyard with my boys! (I'll put up pictures of the yard next week - it's gorgeous!).

See you next week!
