Hello | A Card

Happy Monday! Did you have a great weekend? I had another showing on my house. My real estate agent is in talks with at least 3 parties that are very interested in my house. Someone needs to step up and make an offer already! What are they waiting for????

Anyway, I can hardly believe that the last days of August are upon us. Another summer is just about over. Not that my weather is reflective of the calendar. Here in the southern United States, we won’t see any cooler weather until October. Fall is not here yet.

But I can’t help but get that “back to school” feeling in September. It’s the time of year I always want to take some classes (I need to check out the new workshops at Big Picture Classes!) and learn some new techniques. I’m thinking about taking Double Take at Big Picture (I can always use help with 2 page layouts and I love taking classes from Nic Howard) and Jennifer McGuire’s class Inspiration Showcase.

In the mean time, I have a card to share today.

I’m still loving the look of white on kraft cardstock, so I sprayed some white mist on the card before adhering all the pieces. Studio Calico’s mists have a pretty wide spray. I ended up with more mist than I wanted on this card. One spray would have been enough, but I had the wrong angle on it and it only sprayed half the card. I gave it another shot and it was almost too much. So if you haven’t used these mists yet, be very frugal with your sprays!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great week!

    • I love the peek of the project and it looks like such a fun experience. Online would be nothing like taking it in person though – it’s been years since I had a live class with Jennifer. She’s fantastic! šŸ™‚

  3. Your card is so cute! I love the butterfly! I think the Double Take class looks really interesting but I am signed up for so many online classes right now, I should concentrate on those. Still, I’m tempted… šŸ™‚

    • I know….so many classes, so little time. I actually stepped back on my class commitments a few months ago so I could catch up. So now I’m anxious to start something again. šŸ™‚

    • I just bought a bottle and I’m surprised how much I’ve already used too. Even with the generous spray. It’s become a new favorite go-to product of mine.

  8. I LOVE my misters! However, I agree that there is a fine line between too little and too much. Love the white spray on the kraft as well (with just a hint of copper, it rocks). Great card. Our back to school is on the 1st, so it is definately feeling like fall here! -Amanda

    • I’m NOT ready for cold, but I’ll be happy when it’s not hot all the time. A nice 85 degree day would be so welcome! šŸ™‚ It’s going to 98 today. Sigh.
