One-Layer Wednesday #59

Good things that happened today:
  • So you remember this new initiative that I wanted to get started at work? I sent out the meeting invitation this morning. The meeting's not happening for another month, but hopefully, with the advanced planning, people will keep their schedules open during that block of time.
  • Through my realtor, I expressed interest in some of the furniture that's already at the townhome that I'm buying. I figured "you don't ask, you don't get." The worst she could say is no. She agreed to sell me a whole bunch of things. Who doesn't like a win-win situation? I get stuff that's already matching and she gets money to buy new furniture when she moves to her new place. I'm less than 3 weeks away from the closing exciting!
I love the cheerful yellow flowers in this week's One-Layer Wednesday challenge (#59) inspiration. Of course, I had to try it out! I masked off the edges and stamped the flowers and leaves. When I took the masks off, I thought of just drawing the borders in with a black marker, but then I tried using a border stamp instead to define the image space.
