Last night was one of my favorite surprises ever. At about 11 pm there was a knock on the door, and who should come walking in but our daughter, Kori and granddaughter, Daci! They surprised us with a visit from Chicago for the next week and a half. How wonderful of Rick (who has been working out of town quite a bit lately, and will be for another couple of weeks) to send our girls home to visit for a while so they don't have to be home alone.
Lest you think I have forgotten to share any artwork, I promise I won't let you down. Today I want to share a clear card from my friend, Lisa Stenz. She is such a beautiful artist and knows how to make simple look fabulous. I tend to keep adding and adding 'stuff' to my creations, but Lisa has such a beautiful way of creating that "simple" is "simply beautiful"! I've always been so envious of people who can do that. Her artwork is crisp and clean and gorgeous! Thanks for this beautiful card, Lisa! (you can click on any of the photos of Lisa's card to see them larger and in more detail).
Here is Lisa's card standing up slightly open.
Here I am starting to open the card. Can you see that the stamped pumpkin accents and the Pear patterned paper are adhered to the front side of the front panel of the card, the Barn Red cardstock are on the back side of the of the front panel of the card, while the Sunset paper is adhered to the back panel of the card. Cool beans!
Here is Lisa's card all the way open.
