I can't believe it's already Thursday! Where did this week go? It feels like summer is just whizzing on by. (Or is it just me?)
Today I'm going to share a card I made for some teachers that I work with. Since we're in an elementary school setting, I felt it would be appropriate for this card to be shared.
Now, I don't actually care to mass produce cards, I generally make one card, then move on. But in this case, I had a few teachers to thank, so I made 5 similar cards, but no two were alike. (This one was my favorite!)
Which brings me to today's Blogaversary Prize question: Are you a mass producer or do you prefer one-of-a-kind cards?
I hope you're enjoying yourselves this week, and maybe some of you even know where your week has gone. *giggle
Stay tuned...because tomorrow is Greeting Farm Friday!! Woo Hoo!! I'm so excited I can hardly wait.
Ya know how ya just have a few cards left to make, and you have stamps that you purchased awhile ago that have yet to see some ink, so you might as well use those ones to make a few cards? Or is it just me? *wink Well, I squeezed in some time to create a few cards with a couple of stamps that hadn't seen ink yet.
Here's my first one:
I just loved these penguins the first time I saw them! I think I even got them with a coupon, which makes them especially cute! You can't tell from the photo, but the paper is shimmery and was a great bargain too! (Can ya tell I'm a girl who loves a bargain?) So rather than color these adorable penguins, I decided to glittah them up. (My second favorite form of bling.)
My next card uses a set I ordered almost as soon as it came out, and I'm sad to admit that I haven't inked it up until now. I still have visions of greatness for the elves, but the reindeer are going to have to do with this one. *giggle
I got the sentiment from a commercial I saw on TV. I immediately thought of this stamp when I heard it, so I decided to bring it to life before I forgot because I know I'll never remember it for next year. *giggle
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a safe and warm Holiday Season!
I wasn't as successful as I would have liked to have been yesterday, I only got a few loads of laundry done, and that translates into only a few projects getting done. But, tomorrow's another day, and if I play my cards right, I'll be able to finish the last few Kitchen Sink Challenges before the deadline passes.
So Tracy's Challenge was to create a Christmas Card, and since I don't have any Kitchen Sink Christmas Stamps (yet)...I went for an image that I have been wanting to use for a while. Behold...Jolly Old St. Nick:
I don't remember which stamp company I got this image from, but I love it. I also know that the one layer cards are cheaper to mail, so keeping it simple works best for me! I colored Santa in with Copics and then put Glossy Accents on his hat. Then I put some gray in his hair and beard and then put Glitter on. The sentiment didn't come out as nicely as I would have liked, but what's a girl to do?
Next, Maria's challenge was to use things that I have had for a while, but haven't used. So here's my list of things that I've been hoarding:
M & Ms
Apple Green Ribbon
Now, I know the M & Ms seem like they are recent, but I've had them for a while now, and I just can't bring myself to eat/use them. I'm saving them for something good...I have no idea what that means, but they will be handy soon, I can just tell. Oh, and I am so in love with the Martha Stewart Gooey Punch! It is so stinkin' fun to play with!! Here's my goodie box;
Okay, I'm 'off to sleep, I'm going to try my best to get up early so I can play with the other challenges.
