I've actually made a bunch of cards over the course of time; before and after company, some took days to make as I worked on them in between DH's doctors' appointments, and caregiving tasks, and other cards took just a bit of time. This first one looks pretty darn sweet irl, and is winging its way to a friend. I like this fun and funky look.
For Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday, I made this:
The theme is to use wafter thin dies, and so I did. The banner, the pineapple (both C&9th), the rectangle and oval (both MFT) were all die cut. C&9th stamps, Versafine ink, some gold sequins that match the gold bits behind the pineapple crown and banner, some new LF guava cardstock, and scraps of patterned paper. The guava panel is popped up.
I wanted to show you one more card before I let you run today. It's for both SSS Monday (flora &/or fauna) and Wednesday (create a scene) Challenges. I was inspired by Semee's card from April of this year.
If you haven't seen these WPlus9 dies, head on over there and scope them out. I used a PPP large scalloped rectangle, a LF border die, and a ME scalloped circle. Everything else is WPlus9. Many cardstock scraps gave their lives to make this little cutie.
Neither card is in my "usual" style, but then, my style tends to run the gamut. The kitty card took a couple of months to make. I couldn't get it to look exactly how I wanted, and the picture in my brain wasn't anything like this, so I'd put it away, take it out, put it away....until I sat down yesterday, bound and determined to finish it once and for all. Does that ever happen to you?
I'm waiting for WE Energies to come. As I sat here working on this post, I heard a "pop, pop, pop," and am pretty sure I can see an electrical wire hanging down behind my garage. Some trees are in the way, so I can't be absolutely sure. Don't worry, nothing seems to be burning, and I'm not touching the garage. Obviously I haven't lost power, so I'm not going to go all crazy about this, but safety first! Such excitement at 6:30 in the morning....
And that's it. I'm going to actually try and make a few cards and get some commenting in today. I've kinda missed you all. Well... no "kinda" about it! Take care and happy dances everyone!!
