Sit back & relax!

I'm coming at you from my family room today, absorbing every minute of Inauguration coverage that I can, all while warm and comfy. It's really COLD here today, and the Metro (our subway) lines were unbelievably long (it was suggested to be there by 4am!). Needless to say, I'm thinking the BBC and CNN have much better views than I could ever hope to get. Having experienced the concert on Sunday, (with a fraction of the crowd!) this is the best option for us.

Today's card is 4 inches square, and features the Adirondack chair image from Lockhart Stamp Company. I wanted to give the chair a 'weathered wood' feel, so I started with an underlay of Prismacolor French Gray 30% and put a layer of Light Umber over it. I used my Labels One to create an aperature for this card, then again to cut out the image and layer some Scenic Route paper behind it. I put the sentiment around the aperature, creating a card that is a little out of the ordinary, but perfect for those occasions that you just want to say Hi!

I hope you have a fantastic day. Be well.

OK, that is downright clever and adorable to have that big cut out on the front of the card! I am so going to try that.
