Um, I am a little late : )
I have two cards for this week -- both are a bit behind, but I am trying!
The first is this week's sketch (#26) from Mary Jo's Technostamper Sketch Challenge. The sketch uses arrows -- much easier than it looks once you get started! My card uses one of the humorous seniors from I Brake for Stamps. The background uses the Dry Embossed Wash Technique from the December 2007 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. This card is a little different because it flips up from the top panel. I know just who to send it to, also (*the story is below, in case you want to read it)!
The card on the left is from LAST Week's TSSC challenge (#25). I had the card finished by Friday, but I just did not have time to upload it over the weekend. I love it, though, and I am sending it to my sister-in-law who we saw last night. She is seven months pregnant and I am sure she can use some encouragement! All the materials for this are from Stampin' Up!. It is kind of sad that I JUST opened the package of felt flowers (I have had them for MONTHS). I am sure that these will retire soon, too : )
Okay, MJ, I promise to try my best to make it before noon next Monday -- now I must get off the computer to try to make the card before dinner tonight!
*I am sending the humorous senior card to my Mother-in-Law. While that might seem mean to some, I am sending it because of a story we talked about at dinner last night... You see, she has 4 grown sons, and when they get together, they talk about her in her younger years as if she were a boozin', smokin', hard-livin' broad. It is SO not true. She is a beautiful, accomplished, successful, fabulous person -- but they know how to get under her skin. She will get the joke, I assure you! I adore her : ) And no, she doesn't read my blog, either.
