Yesterday I was in desperate need of a change. In the last week I have created a dozen two-page scrapbook pages. I’m almost half-way through this album with still a second album to do. What can I say, Spring Break 2013 was very good!
For a change of direction yesterday I worked with the My Favorite Things Card Challenge #348. My card is not quite what I envisioned and feel it is still lacking something but right now that something eludes me.
This is the sketch given by My Favourite Things for the challenge. As you can see, I certainly didn’t stray far from the design at all.
As for now, it’s time to get back into the school routine with two teenagers who really don’t want to return to high school today. Wish me luck!
Come Friday you’ll be able to add this year’s Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! to your viewing and shopping pleasure. Here is a small taste of what to expect…
There are soooo many delights in this Holiday Catalog my bank account is already quivering with anticipation of being depleted!
Once the children are back in school next week I’ll be sending out catalogs to all those who requested to be kept on my mailing list. Please message me if you would like to confirm or add your name and address to the list.
My good intentions for completing one or two cards during the week, at my leisure, are once again out the window as here it is Sunday afternoon with the clock ticking. Therefore without further ado, this is my card.
What’s that saying? Plan your work then work your plan. Yeah sure. Whoever said that obviously never experienced a summer-staycation where all sense of time is lost!
This week’s challenge from Stamp, Ink, Paper is… BEACH! Initially I wasn’t going to partake as I have no beachy stamps. Then as I was clearing my workbench I saw “High Tide” and thought, why not! Here is my card.
Please click on the link above if you’d like to join in with the weekly challenges or to simply see all the wonderful interpretations there are for each challenge.
Unbelievably, here it is Sunday and I’ve done BOTH of the new card challenges I’ve found this last week on the same day, today, instead of paced out during the week as planned. Dang it!
The silver-lining is of course is that today I’ve made two cards – that’s twice as many as last week so I’m more than happy, lol!
You know you have it bad when the first thing you think of on waking is “how can I tweak that card-front base to make it work“. And the really hilarious thing is that even the tweak was tweaked!😂
Immediately adhering the base is not something I would usually do and am really not sure what made me do this. It made things that much more difficult in the end. Here is my take on this week’s Freshly Made Sketches 300.
