Because of my spring cleaning - I didn't craft - I have a couple of new cards I made on Saturday when my buddies were here, but before I show those I want to show the one other card I submitted as the round two Instyle project... don't want to forget to show it, I really like how it came out!I just love these RETRO images, they are so fun! I colored "Susie Q" with my Copics, then high lighted with both my White Gel Pen and Spica Glitter pens. For my papers I used SEI Dill Blossoms papers, they have that retro feel to them. And they have a great texture to them. I put my layout together and matted the image with the solids from the collection, and sewed things together with a blanket stitch on my sewing machine. I used Martha Stewart Double Dot Scallop Border punch across the bottom of the card. I cut out one of the flowers from the pattern paper, and pop dotted it on the front of the card overlapping onto the image, then added stickles to the flower for some sparkle and bling. I was happy with how this one turned out - and I guess they liked it at InStyle too... cuz they asked me to join and I just can't wait to get started!
Well today is not going to be a fun day for me.... I promised Hubby I would "clean" up the computer cabinet... funny the things that get stacked around the computer. And also back up the computer and run all the full virus programs. Fun huh? Oh well once done I will sleep better. I am not the best at doing back ups... I think it is the million CD's it takes (our business stuff and photos)... but today won't be as bad... I got an external hard drive! Whoo Hoo...hook that baby up and it shouldn't take nearly as much time!
Hope you have something a lot more fun planned for your Monday!
