So I found some cards I made a ways back and am gonna post one tonight and then go to bed. I may be coming down with a spring cold as my throat hurts and my nose and eyes are itching and my chest is feeling a bit heavy. Well, my throat probably hurts from yelling ;).
This is a card I made last year. I had used the inner part of the D for some other project and it was probably around Father's Day. I used a stencil chipboard D and covered it in Bazzil paper. I remember using a nail file to get the corners nice and clean inside the stencil parts. I then tied a small piece of ribbon on the side. I think it was Chatterbox paper that was used on the top of the Bazzil paper card. It has a texture to it and Chatterbox makes all those wonderful room papers. I probably have one sheet (at least) of every one of them too. The saying was printed with a laser printer on textured yellow and layered on a small scrap of blueish purple. I didn't have anything that would match completely so this little bit of off color looks good. It is amazing to me how much olive and purple go together. I think I may try those colors next time I am looking for some casual clothing. I like t shirts with loose sweaters to pair up with jeans and sometimes want something besides red-my signature color.
I hope to get more items posted in the coming weeks. Hubby is going to China for a while for his job and I get to do whatever I want. I need to finish up a contest entry this week and I don't think I will enter anymore for a while or even involve myself in swaps as I am pretty much burned out with swapping at the moment. I put so much time into my swap items because I would never send anything I would not want to receive-but I have been on the bad side of swaps (swappers not following themes, sending wrong items or such messy ones, I give to my niece to play with) or not acknowledging my items for weeks and it does make me a bit angry that some will take advantage of you. I also need to up my mileage if I really think in November I will get a marathon in-I have narrowed the list to NYC and Chi Town as they are both drivable or train ride possible for me. I just need to stay healthy.
And keep an eye for blog candy coming soon. I have been gathering items and it's gonna be an essay question!
