On my Mind.

Hello blogging friends, welcome to my room . Why is it that time, over weekends , seems  to speed by. Hope you are doing what you love to do with your time .
Quick double quick post today . I have used this layout before in darker colours but this time I wanted something lighter , sunnier and  softer . Have you ever said " you're on my mind " ? Most times when I have said those words , the person in question has been in the forefront of my thoughts but this time,  in this case , I

wanted to show that thoughts of someone can be subtle , fleeting
and sometimes hazy but never the less warm and sincere.

I have used Whisper White as card base and So Safron , SU .
Ink is Summer Sun and I think I could have used a little darker yellow but I did not have So Safron ink so this had to do .
The image is from Pocket Silhouette, while the sentiment is from Upsy Daisy.
Scallop Trim Border punch used for bottom edge , where I placed some rhinestones as embellishment . Ribbon is from my stash .

Just a close up of image and sentiment .
Not very good but you get the idea I hope .
Next time will use something like
 Pumpkin Pie if I have not bought
the So Safron already.

That's it for now . Enjoy your crafting .

EDIT 19.02.11 just a bit later.                 Changed colour of image and sentiment . Gave the sentiment a shadow effect . Ink used was Pumpkin Pie. Used Stamp-a-ma-jig to place new sentiment over first one .

Catch you again soon , cheers for now Shirley-Anne.

Very pretty! Loving that color. Saffron sounds so much better than "mustard", too! heehee!

Another lovely card, I like the edited version as the sentiment stands out more, but the pics don't always do the card the justice it deserves. TFS
