Hello, sunshine...

Hello again!

Not a lot has changed around here since yesterday. I think I heard that the fire is about 30% contained but the smoke and ash still hang heavy in the air. I had a brief scare yesterday afternoon when the power went out again and I didn't know how long it would be down this time. Luckily it came back after only 15 minutes or so... whew!

So for my card I colored up Sunny Mae from Some Odd Girl. I'm not sure if she has made it on to a card already or not but this Mae has been stamped up and sitting on my desk for over a year so it was time to do something about that. I also decided to dig through a stack of collection cover sheets and came across one for the Basic Grey Soleil collection... talk about gorgeous! It had a lovely bohemian vibe that suited Mae to a 'T'. I was trying to figure out how to use all the pretty little bits of paper on my card when I spotted this sun burst die cut that has also been sitting on my desk since last summer as well. By cutting and gluing the paper bits behind the die I got a pretty summer gypsy type background for my card. Love it!  :)

Ok folks, that's all I got for today. Talk at'cha later!

I haven't been on much - so glad you are safe from the fires!!! How scary! Praying for your town and all the firefighters out there working to get it out. I absolutely adore this card - love the patterns peeking through that die!
