Sometimes I find card making supplies in other sections of the store. I just went through the Michaels website and I can’t find the bat and ghost anywhere. That could be because I found them in the party section? They were packaged to be scattered on a table as a part of a Halloween party decoration series that I don’t think they have this year. Then again I buy kitchen supplies at the hardware store.read more
Wondering how things will work leads to a lot of the cards that I make. The background of this card is definitely a case of this. Playing with colors, playing with resist spray, playing with water. It’s nice when it all works out in the end!
Isn’t she cute? I just love this little sprite. The quote makes me unbelievably happy as well. “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” -swoon That is exactly how I feel. This card came together so well that it exceeded my expectations completely! Even when I was playing around making the background paper my husband peeked at it and said “That’s fall”, I knew I had it right at that point.
The pain in my arm is not helping me at all. It is getting better, slowly. I wish it would hurry up a bit. I just deleted everything that I had written for this post on accident…oops. I also should have used a lighter cardstock for the background of this card but didn’t really realize that until way too late. Again, oops.
My shoulder is currently not playing nice. It is trying to get my neck to join it, but it is holding out for the most part. I don’t know what exactly is up with it, I just know it hurts. I hate when this happens. I thought when I woke up this morning that it had worked itself out but I was wrong.
While I was making this card I kept thinking about a show I would watch with my nephew when he was a wee one. The main character was a large sloth named Snook. We would watch it at the same time as my mother-in-law and niece were watching it down the street, we had a couple of shows we co-watched with people. The really frustrating thing was they moved the time it was on all of a sudden and it threw off the schedule in both houses.
