Old Time Best Wishes

Good morning!
I trust you all had a good weekend as I did. I managed to get two very satisfying walks in, sat out and enjoyed the sunshine yesterday, and spent some time while it was raining finishing up my Christmas cards. Yes, I know it's early and yes, I realize it's still Summer, but it's soooo nice to have them done. Now when I have my little group of stampers over in September for our annual Christmas Card assembly day, I can wander and help without feeling guilty that I'm not getting mine done. I also wrapped up a couple of birthday gifts, some cards for a gal at my dentist's office and finally put all my toys away from last weekend. All in all...a darned productive weekend!
Today's card is a somewhat masculine Best Wishes card. The card base is a half sheet of Not Quite Navy lined with Neenah Baronial Ivory. The front center panel is made up of 3 layers - Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler and Neenah Baronial Ivory. The Ivory is stamped with a variety of images including a notebook register (Unity:Moments in Bloom), a corner flourish and clock face from Tim Holtz: The Journey, a sentiment from Kind and Caring Thoughts and the pocketwatch from Papa's Pocket. I used Memento Rich Cocoa, Night of Navy, Ridinghood Red and River Rock ink. The panel is wrapped with beading thread and then cinched together under the button. The little square medallions are done using Fiskars Clearly Sentimental and are stamped with the same three ink colors then trimmed and layered together with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
