Welcome to the crest of the week! Now all you have to do is ride it on into the weekend!
I'm very happy to say that my first cataract surgery went off without a hitch yesterday! I wrote most of this post earlier in case my eye was blurry, which it still is, but all is well. Thank you all so much for your well wishes!
Up first today is a simple one-layer card:
- CAS Watercolour January Challenge: Birthday.
- HLS January Watercolour Challenge: AG with option of sequins.
In other words, I can take a photo of my card at the very CASest stage, see it up on the big monitor and stop ... or add a little sumpin' sumpin', take another photo, ... etc., etc. It takes a bit more time, but it is very freeing to indulge in experimenting with design this way and it helps me know when I've arrived at that "AHA" moment when I'm happy with my card! (And even if I go too far, I still have a perfectly fine card for donating or giving away.)
So, for instance, Stage One:
Above is the same card, but with the addition of winking and splattering and sequints. You will notice that the green colors of the bottle have spread a bit, which winking will do. It's okay (only I wish Hammy hadn't added quite so many splatters), but hmmm, something is still missing ...
In a slew of flowers, I have a spotlight single flower to share:
- CASology: Glimmer.
- The Flower Challenge: Spotlight stamping.
- HLS CAS Challenge: Friendship.
- Pixie's Snippets Playground: Use those snippets!
Since this is such a short post 😇, I'll remind you that we are halfway through the first Twofer Card Challenge! The challenge ends January 24, 2018, at 10:00 AM (PST).
Thank you so much to everyone who has played! I couldn't be more thrilled by your enthusiastic response and the number of you who have already joined in! The gallery is just bursting with inspiration! My awesome Design Team and I can feel the love and support and it means the world to us. More importantly, it's obvious you are having fun and we love that! Mwah!
*Life is too short!
