just a quick card.

Wow, today has been crazy. Of course I should have been expecting that after taking Friday off and heading to the lake, but it was just insane. So after working out I just wanted to spend a few minutes on a quick card.

I needed a thank you card for the owners of the lake house we stayed at this weekend. I decided that my new Basic Grey June Bug paper would be perfect. Here's what I came up with:
Here's what I used:

Paper: White (PTI), June Bug (Basic Grey)
Chipboard: Thickers
Ink: Navy, pink stampin' up writer
Button: Pink (PTI)
Ribbon: White (PTI)

Do you remember my Hydrangea bush I bought earlier this year? It looked like this:
My dad told me they blooms would change color depending on the soil. And check it out:
They are so pink, but aren't they so gorgeous?

And lastly, I thought I'd post another picture from the lake house! I had so much fun with these girls!

So pretty! I love all the patterns and that button is too cute! I have heard that flowers can change colors depending on soil, now I can say it really happens! :) They are BEAUTIFUL!

This is great Courtney. I saw it earlier but was just hopping through real quick and didn't leave a comment then. I like that june bug paper (more than i thought)... i guess you are just good! :)

Love that patterned paper! Yea, the color change has to do with the soil's Ph levels. We have four hydrangeas in our backyard with two in one location and two in a different spot and the colors on the two different sets are totally different! :>

I did not know hydrangeas changed color that way!! Incredible!
