Hope everyone’s holiday weekend has been a relaxing and fun one. It was quiet around here today. I spent most of my day in my stamp room. I spent yesterday afternoon with my favorite daughter (I only have one). We went downtown and had a nice lunch and caught up on each other’s lives. It had been a few weeks since we spent more than 5 minutes in the same room. After lunch, we did a little shopping and then it was home to relax the rest of the day.
Life’s been pretty hectic since I went back to work 3 weeks ago, but I am finally getting back into the routine and I should be able to get a little more stamping done than I have been. A short trip is in my future as my husband and I head off to see my cousin and his wife who are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. I was 6 years old and a flower girl in their wedding when they got married. I think 50 years is an big milestone since most people don’t make it that long! I am looking forward to reacquainting myself with family members that I haven’t seen in a few years.
Today, the card I am sharing is my first attempt at making one of those starburst cards. I think I did all right with it except for one thing. Can you see what it is that I did wrong? If you can’t then I won’t point it out. Just remember…I’ll be doing another one soon and then you can put them side-by-side to compare. Here’s the card and what I used to create it. I think I will have to do a tutorial on it my next post. Anyway…
