Here it is. An overcast and rainy
Tuesday in January
. Not snow. Rain. Crazy, isn't it?! Better that than s.n.o.w. And since I don't have to go out for the next several days, it's perfectly fine with me. Ran all my errands and did the grocery shopping yesterday, so we're set. Been playing in the craft room since early this morning, and got a few things done, which I'll show you in a minute. DH wants a pot roast with mashed potatoes for dinner, and while that's roasting and making the house smell wonderful, I'll be back in here trying to make a few more things. The college-age granddaughters were here for a visit on Sunday before heading back to Madison, and requested lots more birthday cards for their upcoming Christmas presents. Gee...isn't it just sad that I have to make more cards???!!!! Guess I'll have to comply with their wishes! In this batch, I only have one birthday card, but it's only January, so there's plenty of time. Wanna see? 'K.
Playing along at these challenges, and hey, why not meet me in the galleries there?!!
Card number one is headed off to Time Out
. Winter, with a white on white look.
A few different elements and companies used here. The pretty little dotted swiss vellum is a scrap Darnell gave me when we were together at the Lake House last October. A Verve sentiment with ME Smoke ink, a scrap of vellum die cut with a Poppystamps leaf, and an MFT frame.
The border die is from Mama Elephant, a scrap of vellum for the lower half, an AE sentiment with some Fresh Ink in Succulent and ME Apple ink with a bit of Glossy Accents for a little added oomph! On we go...
Card number three is for the Case the Designer #9
over at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers. I chose to CASE Andreea Raghina's card. Her's looks like this:
And here's mine:
Let's start in the middle and work our way out, shall we? The coffee cup is a Print and Cut file from Silhouette. The gold doily is from a kit I bought a while back and don't remember who made it, some gold and white panels cut with a couple of MFT dies, and the flag is an MFT die as well. PTI sentiment. Though you can't see it, I added a little GA on the heart. And since I've kept you overlong, I'll close for today. Happy dances everyone.
