Yay! I've had a lovely, realxing day full of nothing and crafting :) That's the PERFECT Sunday in my books!
My mission today was to create two cards. The first was to be a gift-card-holder for our niece's birthday on Friday. The second was to be a "Thinking of You" card for a dear friend whose husband passed away 2-years ago. Ideally the "Thinking of You" card would be made using the Faux Silk technique so I could use that card for my upcoming technique class. Well ... mission(s) not-quite-accomplished but it was a darned good try!
I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this new layout. You saw it last week on my "Guy Valentine" card. I didn't PLAN to use this laoyout but as usual, when I went to craft today I needed to shovel off my desk (I'm not the tidiest crafter!) The last layer of "stuff" on my desk was the pre-cut supplies left over from my "Guy Valentine" card. I looked at it and figured it would be a great layout for a sympathy card ... or a quick birthday card ... pretty much ANY occasion. GOTTA love those kind of layouts!!! So ..... out came 3 more ink pads and 5 more stamps sets; 5 containers of brads and 4 different ribbons and a mere 15 minutes later VOILA! Here's what I came up with:
I also love my next card - it uses the faux silk technique - but you'll have to come back tomorrow to see that one :) ... and I guess I need to keep working on that gift-card holder!
Have a great Sunday (mmmm - roast beef, mashed potatoes (or mashed cauliflower for those of us counting WW points!), salad and pineapple upside down cake ...). See you tomorrow!
