The sentiment on this card was a bumper sticker on the vehicle parked in front of me at last weekend's market, and it just cried to be made into a card:
The background papers were cut last month and tossed on the Scrap Heap during last weekend's Clean Sweep, and the shapes are from one of my new Nesties sets (and punched out of scraps, also from the Scrap Heap). The ribbon is from the 4,000+ yard spool of the stuff I have left from my Ribbon Outlet trip this past Spring. Sigh ... Also, I used my sponge brayer to kinda add some color to the stark white of the Wide Oval piece with the sentiment. I know it looks dirty, but that was not my intent. Or I could tell you it was my intent, and you'd think I was a genius. Or maybe not ...
This next one resulted from a phone call from BR #2 last night. She called to read a comic to me (she gives me lots of good material, as she spends most of the year driving around the county, and she reads a lot of bumper stickers), and, well, this card just had to be made:
This next one is from something I've wanted to try ever since I saw the video on someone's blog:
Lastly, these next two cards were inspired by this photo in The Pioneer Woman's photography section. As soon as I saw it, I thought, "Hmmm ... I bet I can stamp that!", so I tried. (And if you read the whole post on PW's site, you'll learn how to take an in-focus photo of the moon with your point-and-shoot camera.)
That's all I have for today. I think I'll go clean something now. I actually went to the grocery store today and bought food - first time in about two months. I'm thinking ahead to Thanksgiving and a blessedly-long four-day weekend. And, since I detest crowds, I've already bought most of what I need and can avoid all that silliness in the next week or two. I plan to be a hermit. DO NOT feel sorry for me. I have had several invitations for dinner, but I prefer to bask in the solitude of my teeny tiny condo and have four un-interrupted days of stamping and cleaning and organizing. I hope I make a dent, but more on that as we get closer. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
