Happy Wednesday , and therefor WOYWW everyone! And it is a glorious one, as I'm on vacation!! So, while I do have a huge list of "to do's", I have also gotten some serious craft time in! And look, proof this leopard can't change her spots...all signs of neat and tidy are gone! I actually took this last night right before I went down to make dinner. There is that silly bird card,(thank you everyone for the suggestions) which I finally like. I found some cool lace at Joann's, which I layered between the background and bird. I hit the bird with some blue over the previous brown, so while the photo really doesn't do it justice, it is very vintage-ey and subtle, and now I think its ready to go. Now I just need a better way than the tape runner to attache the lace.
Also, a new spellbinder die I was playing around with...and in the top left, clear packaging that will be die cut for more Christmas cards. Also at Joann's I found that cool rick-rack ribbon, which up close has a gold glitter band down the middle. There is also a tapesty-ish one in cream and white...very pretty! The box is a stamp set I had second thoughts when I first brought it home 5 or 6 years ago...as it was rather expensive..but those Thanksgiving Word Borders from Hero Arts are the best!! So very glad I got them. Oh, and the UM rubber is a cool dove stamp from Stamp Camp; can't wait to play with that later! And screwn (?) around everywhere else, paper scraps...and they really do drive me nuts...I try to save them, never use them, and then get annoyed when looking for a color to layer...arghh! But I just can't toss them..what is a girl to do?
Oh, and here are two cards I made for my Mother's best friends 86th birthday (they are twins). Does anyome know a trick to get the paper out easily from this type of die?? It is quite the bear!
So, thats my desk (oh, and an empty ice coffee cup). Now head to Julia's Stamping Ground for your portal to other very busy desks!! Have a great week everyone!
