Very quick post for you tonight. Once again, I hope all my blog readers on the East Coast are safe and dry. I continue to speak to colleagues who live out in upstate New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and hear their stories. I hope all of my blog readers are OK.
I promised to share the other colors that I made with the Easy Events set for the Paper Players sketch challenge #61. You can see my original card here. That was the really girl version. I also made a masculine version. I know that Lou hates it when I use ribbon on "boy" cards, but seriously, for babies... the card is appreciated much more by the Momma than by baby! So, I think a little bit of ribbon is way ok!!!!
Once again, I love the repetition of dots and stripes! I know... I have some kind of disorder!
Here's what I used on the card:
- Card stock: Pacific Point, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
- Stamps: Easy Events
- DSP: Patterns Back - Brights
- Accessories: Pacific Point ribbon (retired). Brights Button. White Baker's Twine
- Tools: Big Shot, Polka Dot embossing folder. Stampin' Dimensionals.
Now that you have seen the second of these cards... you know you are tempted to buy this fabulous set :-) Funny thing... when I saw this set in the catalog I said... no way, Jose! When I heard it was one of the sets from convention, I said. Oh. No! BUT.... I love it! So... it shows that it's worthwhile going to a friend's house, or your demonstrator's house and trying something out... Or in my case, flying to Utah!
On a personal note
Thank you to all of you who left a message for me on yesterday's post. I really appreciated your wonderful, warm comments. It was the first - and only time I have actually submitted a card for publication. I'm tempted to try again, but, it's really pretty stressful. I know there are some people who really are amazing at knowing exactly what to design to be of interest to a magazine. You learn what pops on a page and trying to think of what trends will be month's from now. me... I get nervous enough just putting cards on my blog. You would be surprised how many don't actually make it to my blog - never mind for submission! Anyway, it was great and i really did like the card, and am so grateful to all of you.
Shout out to my hubby tonight who is, as always, on the road again!
Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need it tonight.
