Today has been quiet, I was able to make a couple cards this morning before I started my chores. My sister is visiting from SC; her bedroom is my "photo" room, so you'll have to be content to see these photographed on my (very) messy craft table. Nothing special, just playing with a few new things.....we visited my dad yesterday, and as we were traveling, I was able to put together my new SU stamp sets, and of course, we know how itchy we get to play with them!
The first one uses Love You Much and the new SU organdy ribbon--it is not like the old ribbon! It has a satin center, and is much heavier and sturdier--really, really nice!
It also uses a new jumbo wheel, Friendly Words, which I stamped and embossed in white. It complements one of my favorite new sets, Friends 24-7, which I used on this card:
This is such a pretty image, and stamped over top of the filigree element, I just love it even more. These were really quick cards, as I needed to get them in the mail TODAY....I always do things under pressure, it seems, so there aren't many layers or embellishments. Both cards used DP from either Prints or Patterns, can't remember which! The image above was stamped in Stazon black and colored with a blender pen and ink. TFL!
On a personal note: I am having a pity party this afternoon. I always have a short haircut, but today I tried a new hairdresser--went in armed with a cute photo---and came out BUTCHERED. I think my DH has more hair than I do. Honestly, I cried like a blubbering baby in my sister's arms when I walked in the door. You know how cute Mary Fish's hair is? Well, that's not it. I called on the way home, and DH says he'll still love me no matter what it looks like. And when people say, "Oh, it will grow in!", that is no consolation....my hair grows VERY SLOWLY. Really. I thought I was going to throw up it was so bad. So anyway, I have rewashed it, tried to push it around on my head, but there's just not much there to work with. So you won't be seeing any photos of me in the near future. My only consolation is that I won't need to spend any money on haircuts for, oh, the next six months at least! And I know God loves me for what I look like on the inside, not the outside! Have a good Saturday!
