Pssst... Color Me Happy!

I had quite the day (night time for normal people) tonight! I had a lovely visit with a PA (Physicians Assistant) that I used to work with and found out we are both new (or in my case, soon to be new) grandmothers. I just happened to have a follow up asthma appointment with her and we got some personal visiting done too :) After that I went grocery/grandbaby/gardening supplies shopping, which was a good thing. I made some wonderful roasted vegetables with my new spices from Season with Spice (potatoes, sweet potatoes, cauliflower, sweet peppers, onions, and carrots with Malaysian Satay, then a batch with Sweet Curry) and some awesome Stittsworth Brats (Maple Smoked Brats). Ate some of the chocolates that I picked up at Chocolate's Plus , got my bread machine out to start making my own bread again, and my kitchen is cleaner than when I started cooking, lol! And I still had enough time to make a fun card! I'm all for local small businesses and these are all great ones, so I had to share about them a bit :)

I played with some new to me stuff again. Gold, gold, everywhere! I can't get enough of it :) The tag was made with a combination of dies and the Envelope Punch Board to round the bottom corners.
  • Stamps: Happy Watercolor
  • Ink: Summer Starfruit, Pool Party, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Gold Encore
  • Paper: Whisper White, Pool Party Core'dinations, Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit, Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum
  • Other: Big Shot with Apothecary Accents, Circle, and Chalk Talk framelits and Decorative Dots embossing folder, Envelope Punch Board, 1" Square punch, Signo white gel pen, Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape, Gold Sequin Trim, Crystal Effects, Gold Baker's Twine, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, dimensionals, sewing machine and thread
I really like how the inside turned out on this one even! It really has been a great night :) We can all use a bright spot in February, even when it is -10° out, lol!
