Ain’t No Sunshine…

here today, so photos don't really capture the colors. Wanted to submit to the Raspberry Suite Color Challenge (2), but I didn’t get home from work in time to post. I did get to play with an earlier card so I’m not too bummed.

I decided to do some hand stitching…but don’t look too closely.

I realized too late that I hadn’t either sufficiently inked my stamp...or pressed firmly enough into the dark chocolate ink pad. The image is too light for my liking.

I wasn’t intending to submit this card to the current Caardvarks sketch challenge, but when I went over to take a peek at the amazing cards posted on the site, I realized…hey, I think this might fit. Second time this has happened to me this week!

Tomorrow it’s supposed to be sunny but then rain again on Friday. Can’t complain too much however, as there’s snow in Wyoming...where we’ll move this August.

Hope you’ve had a great day!
