I've got to catch up on some cards this week. I need a couple of get well's, a birthday, and an anniversary. I also wanted to get a set of cards made for someone who has done us a favor this summer. I'm going to try to fit Teapot Tuesday in, but it may be a little late. The Jingle Belles challenge I will be skipping this week as they are using digital stamps this week and I haven't delved into that yet.
This card came together with some bits and pieces that I had on my work table for a while. The Brilliant Blue tiles are stamped with white craft ink using the Baroque Motifs stamp set. I did use the stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure the placement was the same with each tile. They are mounted on a card base of 120 lb. watercolor paper to give it some stability. The center is a beaded brad from a set that I had picked up in a clearance bin at Mike's. You don't see the inside, but there is a stamped flower image that was punched out, glued over the pointed ends of the brad so you won't see it when you open the card.
Yesterday I was catching up on some blogs and there was a post on beachcomber featuring blue and white decorating. If you love blue and white as much as I do, check it out. Oh, check it out anyway even if you barely tolerate blue and white - it's really pretty (and I have the very same blue onion dishes that she has!).
So, since it's also time for Blue Monday, I'll also share some of the bluebirds that I found at the quilt show this weekend.
