Tomomorrow I'm leaving my beautiful Island of Hawaii to visit equally rural Northern Minnesota for a visit with family and friends. Usually this summer trip is the only time we see many of our friends each year. But this year we saw many of them at a wedding in April in Virginia. So we've really been getting around this year!
But there are still a few friends we'll miss, so a note to them will be in order. And i have a perfect stamp to use to decorate a card for a note!
The stamp is a one-stamp 'set' called Sheet Music. It's a large background stamp and could fill an entire card front. I chose just to use part of it, though I stamped the whole image. I'll use the other part of it for another card. While I certainly could have used any color I wanted, I chose a black-and-white theme because I was participating in a swap that required a black-and-white theme. I think this works well!
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon when I bought it – I'm a sucker for Ribbon, so I had to have it! – but it works beautifully for a card like this!
The sentiment is from an older – but still current – set called Flourishing Phrases. Perfect for this, don't you think?!
This whole blog post has been an experiment for me, so it's a bit shorter than usual. The experiment is that I wrote this whole post using my Mini iPad. I usually try to write posts in advance of a long trip so I can continue to share with you what I've been doing. This time I wanted to try sharing some of my vacation exploits with you as well as a card or two or three. Darned if it's not working beautifully!
Thanks for reading this far! I'll have some airport time tomorrow, but I'm not sure if it will be enough for a post. I'll have to see how things go, but I'll be sure to stay in touch!
