With a day off in the middle of the week, this week has flown by for me. And today is going to be a winner. Busy busy day at work so I won’t be able to leave early, but the husband and kids will leave at noon to head up to go camping, and I will drive up there after work this evening. We haven’t been camping in like 6 weeks or something, and I am so ready for sleeping in the trailer, silly stories, s’mores, and a whole lot of bike riding.
This is one of those cards that started to go south on me as I was creating it. My creative process is choosing the patterned paper, and nothing else. It all comes together as I am sitting at my craft table. I don’t know if it’s going to be a birthday card, or an anniversary card, or a just because card (like this one turned out to be), until I am done. But sometimes it doesn’t come together easily. Especially when I am working with a big image – like this bicycle sticker – once I laid that down, I struggled with where to put a sentiment. I remember at one point almost throwing this card away, but then I would have wasted the bicycle sticker. So I went with a little scalloped chipboard on the side, and the little words, and some washi, and a little stitchy. And I liked it. And it was published in the March issue of CARDs magazine – bonus!
Cheers – the weekend is here!
