Well folks, it's raining because of the Tropical storm that went through Florida, and I'm a bit bummed right now. I'm not bummed because of the rain, even though that does put a damper on my running plans and possibly my tennis plans this evening. I'm bummed because our AC is out. Even though we had them fix a small problem the other day, and by small I mean $400, that didn't fix the big problem. We have a choice to make. The unit is roughly 10 years old and the free-on is going obsolete and there is a leak. To fix it could run between $1000 to fix the coil, or much more to replace the unit. So I may be crafting this afternoon to replace the blah feeling that I'm feeling right now.
Okay, enough yuck. I did make a card using some vellum, and I am just loving the results. I embossed the images in white and then colored the back with Copics. What a pretty look, don't you think? The trick with vellum is that attaching it with tape shows through. I know they make specific adhesive for vellum, but I don't have any. Do you see the white strips of paper? I put that over the top to cover the one strip of adhesive that I used to attach my vellum. It works, and I think it looks fairly pretty.

Thanks for stopping in today. I didn't make this for anything in particular. . .I just made it. Sometimes that is the most fun :)
