One-Layer Wednesday #66

This morning started out a little crazy with RJ playing with a huge spider that got in the house. I originally thought it was a cricket so I resumed getting the trash out of the house for trash pick-up day, but then the creepy crawly thing didn't move like a cricket so I screamed, picked-up RJ and put him on the other side of the room. He yowled, probably upset that I wouldn't let him play with his new toy. The spider was so big that I didn't have the guts to pick it up so I sucked him up with a vacuum. Blech, yuck!

I was in a meeting with the Executive Director this morning. He turns to me at the start of the meeting, "Do you want to lead this meeting?" What? Uh, ok, sure. That was totally unexpected. The other surprise thing that happened today was that I got a call from my former officemate who left at the end of June. It was nice to catch up.

Here's my take on One-Layer Wednesday #66: Get Inspired by Janelle. "Be inspired by Janelle's blog...anything on her blog, from her blog banner to her family photos, from her one-layer cards to her more elaborate creations. Doesn't matter." I had never visited this person's blog before, so it was cool to see her work. I decided to make a card inspired by this card that she did on September 21 with flowers and a sentiment in the corner. I liked that she used a lot of flowers, but I took a different spin on it by using different flowers. The flowers I used were solid, while hers came in two different parts (middle and petals). My card also wasn't square. I liked how the sentiment really stands out from the busy flower business in the background.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Blackbird, Maroon, Rose Coral, Warm Red, Yellow Ochre, Warm Green
Stamp: Studio G (sentiment), Inkadinkado- Nature (leaf, flowers), Autumn Leaves- Journaling (frame)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
