Now that one got me for a while. I really was stumped.... Hubby and MIL was starving and we decided to go out and grab a bite to eat. While sitting in the restaurant I was going over everything in my stash that I had "saved" to use. We all know there are lots of neat things that can be used in our paper crafts, tags from clothes, ribbons from gifts... but I wanted something that would always be thrown out.
Well there it was sitting right in front of me. My MIL got a refill of her ice tea..... reached over to add a little more sugar, and dropped the empty packet on the table. The word Sugar - perfect for A Spoon Full of Sugars challenge! I used that empty packet as part of the sentiment on my card!
For my card I used a white card stock base and a scrap of K&Co. paper in a pretty pink pattern. I stamped out Sugar Nellie Maggie, as it has been a while since I have used her and she seemed sweet as sugar. I then played with a new tool I have had for a while and not used. I got the air gun for my copics....this could be addicting! Now this was my first time using it so I do plan to practice more and get better at it but not bad for my first attempt. She is matted with a scrap of yellow and gel pen stitched around. The sentiment "You are sweet as..." is computer generated and matted with the same yellow paper. I placed my sugar packet in a million places trying to hide some of the non-cute stuff, then punched a heart with my Fiskar's Squeeze punch. Added a yellow Doodlebug ribbon and a Martha Stewart flower, inked and doodled the edges and I think it is really cute. Definitely girlie... but cute.
Make sure to go and see the other DT cards... they were really creative on their recycling too!
I worked on a couple of other cards last night, but didn't get them finished. We had a Remote Control melt down last night. We have satellite TV out here in the country. Our remote went wack-o on us last night and quit working. We tried new batteries, took it apart, "gently" tapped it -HA! and well it is now in the trash can!!! In more than one piece.
Ok... no remote I didn't have a remote growing up I can handle this. AAHH NO I CAN'T!!!! You can't change the channel to the satellite box without the remote!!! The Yankee's were playing the Texas Rangers... one of my favorite games to see all season, and I can't get the stupid TV to work! So today I am going into town just to get a universal remote and hopefully I can program it to work! Wish me luck, I don't want to miss game two tonight.
And hopefully I can get some happy crafting done! Have a great Tuesday and hope you have some craft time too -
