Pop quiz! When is $50 greater than $100?
No, I am not crazy. It really happened to me today.
Answer: When the $50 stack is made up of all circulated dollar bills and the $100 stack is all newly printed, still-in-numerical-sequence, is-that-ink-dry-yet dollar bills. That stack on the left is 50 circulated singles, and the stack on the right is 100 new bills. True.
Okay then, moving on ... in the stampy arena, tonight I decided to use this inspiration piece to make a card:
I took this photo a few weeks ago at the market. It's a cloth purse for sale at the table across from me. I saw hearts. I saw black. I saw pretty colors. I had an idea.
This is what I just made:
Maybe not my best work, but it's a start. You can at least tell where I'm going with it. I remembered seeing this card (Carp - can't find it now. I'll link it when I do.) of just a row of small punched hearts. I thought I'd do the same thing, but put the black hearts behind the colored ones to stand in for the black in the purse.
Uh-huh. It sounded like a good idea at the time ... ...
I made the card 4 1/4 x 5 instead of 5 1/2, just because there is so much white. I'm still not sure.
I thought maybe even smaller cards, like the 3 1/2 x 5 note cards, would be better. Then I could make a 5-pack. Hmmm ... I need to chew on this one some more.
In other news, this is why I don't recycle more often:
This is the box that my 1000 merchandise bags came in about 7 years ago. I finally removed the last stack and tossed the box on the floor while I put the bags into my market bag. I came back and kitty had taken over the box. (What is it with cats and cardboard?) It's been a few weeks, and she's made it quite the nest. I took this a few minutes ago. She looks pretty comfy, non?
That's it for tonight. Don't forget to play Spot The Mistake! Make sure to post your answer on the Spot The Mistake post if you want a chance to win.
Thanks for stopping by!
Since there is so much white space on the card, have you thought about maybe adding more hearts? Something like three rows (three just seems like it would be perfect) or maybe shaping the hearts into a bigger heart? Just a thought and hope it helps you come up with something.ReplyDelete
