I am surrounded by inspiration! I have yet to act on much of it, but still ... I took a pic of a sticker on a car this morning, and I even have the whole card based on it planned out in my brain, but did it make it to paper? Nooooooo. Instead of making that card, I made this one:
This was inspired by something someone said, and she gave me permission to use it on cards. Her actual statement was, "My husband can't cook, but he still melts my Velveeta." I changed it up a bit so it could be bought/given by a male or a female. AND, I used the A Muse stamp that I bought for some Engagement cards and thought I'd never use again (how wasteful, I know, but I do own it, and that's the whole point, right?), but this image and sentiment would totally work for an Anniversary or for a Just Because card, too. (There! I've justified that purchase again. Sweet!)
I broke out my SU Dusty Durango patterned paper pack for the layers, and I also used some to paper-piece her dress (way easier than coloring it!) I used my Threading Water punch on the white layer, originally because I thought it would mimic something melting...you know, drippy, gooey, melty ... or not. I salvaged it by putting some bling in each of the holes to dress it up a bit.
It's my first pass, but it has promise. It may even find its way into my box o'cards for this weekend's market.
So yeah, my brain overfloweth with ideas, and I am only restrained by that pesky Day Job, or I'd crank out even more of this stuff. Ah, well, it does pay the bills, and support my habit, so I guess I'll keep going back. Until they tell me to stop, that is. :-)
BTW, I have serious issues with Blogger's spellchecker. You can spell 'but' as 'bust' (which I did), and it thinks it is okay. And why does it not undersand 'SU' or 'bling' or 'overfloweth'? What's up with that?!?!?! I may investigate Livewire or some other software options so I can compose offline and just post when I am ready. Oh, that's funny. Like I'd write anything in advance. HA! Not.
Time to hit the hay and rest up for another day at the salt mines. Thanks for stopping by!
