Last week I sent one to a friend and her family. Actually she was one of my students when I taught at the University (CIU). Her and her whole family are incredible and inspiring people. My best memory of Julie is that she was not a morning person! It was good to hear back that the kids really loved the Halloween card. Makes my day.
Since I'm on a Congratulations spin this week I made a card for my niece who is making me a Great Aunt.
I don't do cards...I don't do cards...I don't do cards. Really, this is what it feels like to sit down and try to make a card. I use to be the same way with stamping. Mmmmm, can I say I'm a bit obsessed with stamps now? Hopefully, I'll get through this and cards will become a great joy to make. I do like the finished product.
The idea for my card came from one of the Micheal's Arts and Crafts project sheets. their card was very shabby chic or a Tim Holtz style. Mine, not so much.
- I need more "word" stamps. I found having to use an alternative word to Congratulations challenging and "magical" was perfect.
- I can't make anything without applying ink!
- when you are new to card making then make sure you have enough paper to experiment and mess up. This should have been simple scraps, but I went through a whole sheet of the just the base getting it cut right!
- Don't put your needles in a safe place so you will remember where they are. It will never happen!
Congratulations to Megan and Edgar! God has given you a great gift in each other and in this new one coming.
Have a Crafty Day!
