My best friend was here from out of town this weekend so on Saturday night we had a few people over, got a little silly, and stayed up wayyyyyy too late. Of course I was still up at 6:30 but stayed in bed until 7:30 so as not to wake up our guests.
7:30 was still a sleep-in so I felt the need to get up and get going. I'm not sure everyone else felt the same, but I had promised a nice big breakfast upon waking, so I didn't hear any complaints. Now, it's after noon and I am the only person in the house that is awake. Aforementioned best friend has a three year-old son (bouncy bouncy bouncy) and doesn't often get time away from him. However, he's out ice fishing with his dad today, so mama gets a little well-deserved rest. I had grand plans for us to make cards all afternoon, but a rare nap seems too good to pass up so I sent her back to bed for a bit.
Knowing that I had company this weekend, I left all of my work in my office, so I found myself with some guilt-free surfing time. I've been meaning to try out some techniques with my brayer and I finally did.
I watched a tutorial and then flew at it. It took a few tries before I could get it to look how I wanted, but I'm pretty pleased.
The picture doesn't really capture all of the colours very well, but it's So Saffron layered with Calypso Coral. I love how the back matting makes such a bold statement. I was going to stamp a sentiment up in the right corner, but I like it plain - I think.
