Greetings from Louisville

Today I am in Louisville with my husband who has a conference here. I spent the day walking around downtown Louisville and stamping! Most of my suitcase was filled with stamps and supplies!

I needed to make a card for my great nephew, Andrew. He turns 4 tomorrow. I brought along the paper that I received from Kisa, Daisy D's Sidewalk Chalk Mini's. (Thanks, Kisa!) The second card below was my first attempt. I had everything cut and ready to assemble when I realized I didn't bring any adhesive! Oops! Off to find some.

When I returned, I decided the card was too girly. So I swapped out the Mellow Moss cardstock for Certainly Celery, and the Orchid Opulence cardstock for Brilliant Blue. It's still not too masculine, but he's only 4, so I don't think he'll mind.

I took the first photo during the day, but didn't photograph the second one until evening, so
unfortunately the image isn't as nice.

Thanks for visiting!

Ink: Stazon Black pad, Certainly Celery, Mellow Moss, Garden Green, Orchid Opulence, and Bordering Blue Markers for watercoloring

Lots of stamps and no adhesive...could have been disasterous! ;) Glad you found some! Both cards are adorable! Really like the plaid paper! Safe travels~ Patti
