Hello, and happy CATurday!! Bobra had his first trip to my Vet today, and he has been declared a VERY healthy young cat, which we pretty much already knew, but now he's officially ON FILE, ya know? He also had his lethal claws clipped so my hands may actually heal now, and he'd been chipped, so if he sneaks out, he can be returned to me.
Since I was up and out of the house so early, when I got back I figured I might as well stamp, so I went into The Captain's Quarters to tackle next week's SOS challenge card. I actually started to, following the current MFT sketch:
The flourish is one of my new MFT dies, and here it is before I anchored it and covered it up:
Now about that sentiment panel... I wanted to use one of the narrow rectangle Nestabilities dies, but couldn't find one that fit, so I went with the "too fat" option and used a regular rectangle. I was going to live with it, but I was twitchy, and it covered up too much of the flourish. What to do ... what to do ...
I hacked it. I did. Lookie:
Sorry it's out of focus. Bad lighting. Bad photographer. And yes, it's about time for a new cutting plate. All I did was move the die down a little and cut the top white space away. I didn't run it all the way through, so the bottom edge didn't get re-impressed by the edge of the die.
Thanks for stopping by!
