Well, Sunday evening and the weekend is almost over. But it was an enjoyable one so I won't complain, out loud anyways! If you guys only knew what I said in my head you would be shocked! Anyways, I managed to make a couple of cards today, not quite satisfied with them but they are what they are cause I am tired of fussing with them.
My first card is for the LOTV challenge which is to use roses on your card. I also had one of the girls where I work ask me to make a card for her mom's 85th birthday and she asked for an angel and flowers on the card. I have used one of the LOTV stamps and some flowers from WOC. My problem with the card is that when I try to mount images over lace the center either is higher than the rest if I put pop dots on the back of the entire thing or it looks saggy and not supported in the center if I only put them on the sides where there is no lace. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
My second card is for the Deconstructing Jen challenge which is a sketch. I have tried the layering technique again today but unfortunately the glue I used made the layers sort of buckle. My friend Elaine is sending me special glue so I may have to wait to try this again until it arrives. I tried to do some doodling along the edges too and am so-so about it so pretty sure this card is going to my 4 1/2 year old niece who doesn't care what it looks like, she is just happy to get mail. The image is from Pink Cat studio. I had bought a few of their images when I first started making cards then sort of forgot about them and then "rediscovered" them a week or so ago. Really whimsical and cute so you might see more of these appearing on my blog.
Ok, a long post from me today but since my husband was gone all weekend and I only had the cats to talk too you guys have had to suffer for it. But that is what friends are for right? Enjoy the rest of your evening!
