Sit back and Relax!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

My family and I just got back last night from a wonderful vacation in St. Louis, MO.   We had such a great time checking out the beautiful city and the tourist spots while we were there... the Zoo, the Science Museum, Grant's Farm, the Arch, and even Union Station.  The weather was perfect and nothing was too busy or crowded - so all in all, it really was a perfect vacation!

But, you can imagine how happy we are to be home again... nothing like your own bed and house after an extended time away, is there?  With that in mind, I thought I'd share this card I made with Nina Brackett's new Fine Furnishings and Fine Furnishings Additions stamp sets...

Card Details:
Stamps: Fine Furnishings and Fine Furnishings Additions
Ink: Vivid; Stazon, Distress
Cardstock: GinaK; Basic Grey Origins papers and punchouts
Other: Detail embossing powder, sewing machine, daubers, felt flower and brad, buttons, ribbon, clip

It may be hard to tell in the photos but I stamped the solid images in Brown Vivid ink and embossed with clear embossing powder to make them look like our brown leather couch and chair in our living room.  In fact, even as I type this - Brad is asleep on the couch and I'm on the laptop relaxing in the chair... lol!

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend and thanks for checking in on me today!

Beautiful card! Love the inside as much as the outside! Next time you get to St. Louis, be sure to drop me a line - I'd love to meet up! Glad you enjoyed our city. My SIL lives in Appleton - anyplace close to you? Hugs!
