Alright, I promise this is the last of the WRAK contest cards for May! This one required using your favorite embossing folder. Well, I can honestly say I don't have a favorite, I just use whichever one feels right to me at the time! I don't know if you can tell by the picture but the two saffron panels are embossed using the folder with the birds on it (oops, don't know the name of it!!). I really like this rose image from the Bloomin' Beautiful set, I will have to request more because I used quite a few of them!! Yep, I used my Copics to color it and have it and the scalloped sentiment popped up. The colors of cardstock are night of navy, bravo burgundy and so saffron. I don't often reach for my Rich Regals, so I thought I'd give 'em a try. Thanks so much for looking.

I'm trying to listen to the hockey game while I'm typing this so please excuse any mistakes. I'm so bummed that the Pittsburgh Penguins are down. They just need to bring it home. Fingers are crossed. GO PENS!!

Hooray, the sun is out but the air is still a bit crisp. Almost reminds me of an autumn day instead of end of May. I'm off to hang up some laundry -- my small way of helping out the environment! Yesterday I bought all kinds of hockey shirts for the family to get us ready for the first game of the Stanley Cup. GO PENS!!!!!

The sun is shining today, finally, but the temps are still rather chilly. My beautiful hanging baskets have been chosen by some finches and sparrows as their home. I'll keep taking out the nest unless there's eggs in it.
I'm off to the post office then to work. Hope everyone has a most wonderful day, thanks for stopping by.
