 I am using more of the Gemini dies I bought off of HSN. I cut them out twice and layered and then colored with markers.

I found this Sketch that I thought would work great with this die and give a little interest to the background. 

  • Gemini - Create a card, Gerbera die, cut twice and layered, colored w/markers
  • K&co. - K-ology Hanna cardstock for base
  • Teresa Collins - Tell your story paper for strip
  • Martha Stewart - border punch
  • Offray - spool of ribbon
  • Stampendous - Birthday assortment sentiment stamp

We took advantage of having cooler weather yesterday to take everything out of the garage on one side, which consisted of 4 big shelves full of stuff, plus all the Christmas and winter tubs (10) and put them out in our driveway and so glad we did, we had put down plastic thinking that would be good to put under the shelves and into the walk space where we had boxes sitting and it would keep from the damp well when you have a flood all that does is keep in the wet, so we had to totally take it all out and then put fans on to dry, we saw a little black on the wall so we sprayed the walls all down with bleach and let that dry and then put it all back.  Let's just say we decided to let a few more things go along the way, I still have things to look through but we were getting pretty tired by the end. The other side of the garage is my hubby's work bench and all those tools, we have no idea what it looks behind all that but we will save that for when it is a bit cooler out, no plastic was used on that side.

Hope you all enjoy a great weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and let me know you have,

Your card is so pretty and I love the die! I love the look when a die is layered and I seem to forget to use that technique on a card. Thanks for the inspiration.!

Oooh, Connie, these colors and the beautiful leafy die really grabbed me. Very summery with a hint of fall. You've been very busy in the garage. It's distressing that the mold is trying to take hold. Good luck staying on top of that.

Great job doing the garage, I go out to mine and just hmph at it and come back inside, but it is pretty tidy really, I store in giant plastic roller bins after we were flooded, peace of mind, but too much stuff..gorgeous card Connie, love the frame, I have some frames like that so much get some out and play, the added flowers is so pretty..

That is a terrific sketch for this die cut. The addition of the second die adds a 3D interest to the card. Great colors too.

This is such a pretty card Connie! I love the colors you used. So glad you had a productive day! Sounds like it will be helpful in the future to keep things safe from water damage.
