Here's the first card, then I'll explain:
|Photos are worse than usual as it's dark and dreary outside. |
I've been left to my own devices, alone, with a camera.
The heart is there partly for balance, but more to cover the mystery schmear I found there. The sentiment is from a Paper Smooches set (linked below).
Here's one of the two cards I made while grumbling about that first one:
I cut the paper on the diagonal in the wrong direction. Wait, no, there are no mistakes in stamping, only opportunities for embellishment! Gosh, I love this hobby! I cut a strip of the red from the same paper pack, then stared at it for a while.
I don't like to be told what to do, and this card said "Stamp on the diagonal". Trust me, I tried not to, but it seemed to be the right thing to do. I originally had a fat flower garnish on the left side of the diagonal, but opted to use the pearls instead.
Here's the other card from the other half of the paper:
Both of these use sentiments from the same Paper Smooches set. They aren't the traditional PS funky fonts, but I like them all the same. An excellent set to have in one's collection.
The red strips down the sides of the card look the way they do since I forgot the paper was 5 1/2" instead of my usual 5 1/4", and I'd rounded the corners, and I was stuck. I think it came out okay, though.
That's my saga about these three cards. I also made some challenge cards that I'll post later.
In other news, it's raining, big time. It's even teased us by turning to snow a few times today, but I know it's been too warm lately for any of it to stick seriously. (Oh, did I say that out loud?) This is what my yard looks like after a good rain:
Yeah, not a good spot for a garden. Maybe some pussy willows or something else that loves water. I'm sure the neighbors would appreciate that, too. What a soggy mess!
Thanks for stopping by!
