Love You Challenge Card

Love You Card
CASual Friday has a challenge called "Getting Edgy" this week. I thought this would be the perfect time to use my new Sizzix eClips Edges design cartridge. Wow, I love this one! It is full of beautiful borders (which you can also turn into decorative accents). I used an embossing folder also by Sizzix. The metal tab is by Making Memories. I seem to be stuck in a "black and white" color scheme lately but it is always so striking with an ornate border. :)
I'm inside enjoying a heavy rain which means I won't have to water flowers this afternoon. I got carried away this spring with all my planting. It is taking 45 minutes in 100+ heat (not to mention the humidy)to keep my flowers "happy." :) This is the third afternoon this week I have gotten "time off." Nothing better than being inside when it is raining and making cards or reading a good book. I have been reading some interesting books this summer. I recently finished "Before I Go To Sleep" which I couldn't finish fast enough....just to see how it was going to end.
I started "Still Missing" yesterday and can't wait to read more of it. I'm also reading "The Snowman" on my Libre which is lighted. I read it outside at night and read my Kindle "before dark." I resisted ereaders for a long time and now I've ended up with two....love both of them! They have made reading fun again. Enjoy your weekend! :)
