Catch up. I made this card and it just didn’t get posted. It has been patiently waiting for its turn, and I just seem to be doing something else every time I sit down at the computer. I think that things are finally getting back on track after summer, but it is definitely taking time.
Our house has been taken over by Fortnite. It started out innocent enough with the nephew doing the dances, and then he started watching videos of people playing and then it all snowballed from there. Now the husband and I also have accounts and spend a bit of time playing each day. I can’t believe that I have fallen under the spell of a shooter game. Agh!
Right now my workflow is off due to summer break and sharing my work area with the kids. So, I thought I had done a better job of replicating the sketch until I was able to get back to my computer and look at it. The picture in my head wasn’t quite the same I guess, I turned the fade the wrong way and moved the sentiment. Ah phooey.
Loving getting to play with new stamps! This card just really came together while I was playing around with the stamps. I love how that can happen. I wanted to see if this would work, and it did, so then I should try this, and that worked too, and they look so nice together, and all of a sudden I realize that I have made a really pretty card.
This card actually made me use some of my rusty computer skills. I used to do a lot more image work, and I guess I still know how to do it if I need to. I wanted to make the center of the heart a cut out and since I know that I am horrible when it comes to fussy cutting, I knew if I just prepared the image correctly I could make my Cricut do the work for me. I think that is one of the reasons that I like digital images so much.
