Isn't it a beautiful Monday, so fresh and unblemished? Seems like ages since I posted on a Monday and said those words, but I had to slip in today to play in a coupla three challenges before it's too late.
In my last post I segwayed from summer to fall and today I'm fast-forwarding straight into winter. I know that's not how you spell segue, but it's how I spell it because to me segue seems like it would be pronounced like league.
Anywiddle, listen, if I don't start making some Christmas cards, I'll be sending out blank white cards with a note inside! Eeks!
So here you go.
- Less Is More: Use a real object.
- Stick It Down. A new-to-me challenge! Card sketch below.
- Watercooler Wednesday: Penny's "All About Christmas."
These cards both came about because of the brief from Less Is More, which is to "use a real object" on your cards. Well, geez Louise, that opened up a drawer of ancient relics from the last century that hadn't seen the light of day in a long time! So many cute things I have! Why have we forgotten about them? Now we just want to play with everything in there!
- Merry Monday: Christmas in July summer link-up inspired by the December 5, 2016 "Candy Canes" challenge.
- Rudolph Days: Anything goes Christmas.
And now, just to keep you on your toes, lets reverse gears all the way back to springtime for all my friends down under!
When I saw the sweet metallic leaf, I immediately thought of a couple of other challenges. The little doodled flower is NBUS from MFT, which I painted on a creamy card in the pink, yellow, and green colors of the photo inspiration from Just Us Girls. I loaded my paint brush and splattered the background in the same pink and yellow colors. The sweet sediment doesn't list a company on the side, but this is printed: "©1992 Annette Allen Watkins."
Here's a closeup of the pretty metal leaf:
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*
