It's hot out today, so my daughter and her BFF are at the pool.  I chose to stay indoors to catch up on some chores, and make some stuff. It's going be in the 90's tomorrow, so we'll all probably hit the pool to cool off.  I'm hoping to work on my tan. lol

Here is a card I made this morning.

I love any shade of blue or purple with yellow, so this card makes me super happy.  I mixed some embossing paste with some MFT Lavender Fields ink, for the damask background.  I will definitely do this again.  It's so pretty, and adds a lot of texture.  I really need to use my stencils more too.  I'm going to send this to a dear friend, whom I love quite a lot.  Hope she likes it.  I was happy to combine the following challenges in my card today.

MFT Color Challenge #25:  Limelight, Peach Bellini, Daffodil & Lavender Fields
Mojo Monday #405:  Sketch
Papertake Weekly:  Anything Goes
Runway Inspired Challenge #87: Holly Fulton  (I was inspired by the lavender, and beautiful lace blouse in the photo)
CAS-ual Chic Challenge #1:  Embossing (I used embossing paste, and dry embossing)
Just Us Girls #301:  Gold

I'm off to find something to make for dinner, then see about making more stuff.  I hope ya'll have a great afternoon!
