Ok... so i'm making a post before bed and then i must sleep! I've been ready to fall over all day. Where was my hubby today? Working hard? Nope. fishing. all day. FISHING! I called to check in at 4 ish and he said about an hour. So i said ok. Then he called later to just let me know it was taking them longer (issues with the boat, then stopping for food, etc). He got home around 7 and thought i hated him. I said no hate... just a looooooong day. He felt bad. So maybe at some point this weekend i'll get some me time.
today is day 2 of the verve challeges over at splitcoast. Can i just say that i LOVE Julee's sketches? They look beautiful themself and they arent even a card! I'm jealous, i'll say it. You can see the sketch and challenge for today here as well as check out everyone else's cards.
I actually had my grandmother in mind as i made this card. Dont think this looks very grandmother-ish? You've never met my grandmother! She's about a Sassy McFrassy as they come. Pins her hair just right every morning and puts on her face (makeup). She's turns 94 this november. I cant believe it! She's actually ailing from a broken rib right now, so maybe i should have made it a get well card! Anyhoo - this is my new set from verve and i wanted to use it anyway. :)
The set is Birthday Surprise. I colored in my bird and birthday package with copic markers. Then just for the kick of it, i tried shading around the entire edge of white cardstock and faded it out with the blender. You cant see too much of it (especially in the photo) but you can see it a smidge in person. I was just curious to see what the effect would be. :) I then doodled around the edge ust for fun. I layered my image piece of a piece of cardstock (scrap, so i dont know what color, sorry) that i ran thru the cuddlebig using the divine swirl embossing folder. And placed some brads from spare parts. The purple patterned paper is by american crafts. Everything else is pretty self explainatory! :)
Check back in tomorrow morning (which no one will probably read this before then!) because it's thursday which means it's time to HIP HOP!) I'll post my unity wednesday challenge card while caffienating in the morning. Then it'll be off to take jack to school, grocery shop, go to the TuTu doctor and THEN i'll get to be back to hip hop! YIPPIEE!
