I'm really excited about my card today - you know how you feel when something comes together even better than you thought it would when you started out with the idea? Well, that's this card for me! I love the lines of it, the colors, the mix of shapes.........
I made it for this weeks' Freshly Made Sketches - but used arrows instead of banners. I drew the 'stitches' with a ruler and a black 01 micron pen. The sentiment is from the Words of Wisdom set by Waltzingmouse. The arrows die is from MFT. I had a pile of arrows already cut in several colors - left over from previous projects. I just grabbed a bunch of them and laid them onto my card base until I liked how they looked! Then I added 3 enamel dots to the longest arrow, drew the 'stitches' and stamped the sentiment. I have no idea what/who I'll use this card for - but I'm sure some event will come up that it will be perfect for! In the meantime - I'm just going to put it on my kitchen counter and look at it for a while!!! LOL!!
I can't believe it - but I'm all ready for Christmas. Cards sent, presents bought and wrapped, gifts given to co-workers. We have a small family - so I only have a few gifts to give. And it means we can spend more time just enjoying each others company on Christmas day when we gather for dinner.
I'm actually off work Monday and Tuesday - Kent has to have shoulder surgery and wouldn't you know - they scheduled it for 12/23 and he'll be overnight so I'll be picking him up sometime on Christmas Eve day - so it's just as well that I have everything done!
