I hope your week is going well! You'll be happy to know that I've spent the last three days doing online research and even offline research (remember libraries?) to find out which department handles how many days there are in the month of November.
What happened was Hammy and I have NOT been kanuckling down like we promised. In fact, we've been fiffing and faffing (we hope those aren't dirty words somewhere cuz that's happened before on this blog) and now we find ourselves short of time.
So. We knew it was too much to ask for another month to be inserted between November and December, although that's really what we need. Instead, we started a petition to add just one day. After all, most of the other months have 31 days, so it's not like it's a big deal. It's not like stars and moons and ocean currents and things have to be involved. Or do they?
Well, anyway, that's what's been happening. If you'd like to sign the petition, please let me know. All signatures need to be received at the Post Office address by yesterday at 4:30. Thank you!
Now, how about some shiny gold, so shiny it will blow your spectators right off your face!
- Christmas Card Throwdown: Sketch. I used rectangle instead of oval.
- The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge: Anything goes.
- The Paper Players: Theme challenge: Holiday Pines.
I was also going to enter the above card in the CAS Mix-Up November Challenge, but then I realized, can I though? Where is the white space required to make a card CAS (clean and simple)?
So I made this second card using the little piece of vellum that I cut off the original 6x6 paper. I stamped and glittered and die-cutted and heat-embossed.
I forgot to tell you that I ran the galaxy gold ink pad all around the deckled edges of the die cut panels to add even more shiny gold. You know, because there wasn't enough. That's my last sheet of pine cone vellum, but I do have other sheets with stripes and dots and chevrons, so I'll be making more of these in both gold and silver.
Real quick. The other day I posted a pretty card for the We Love You Dawn hop. Here is another card I made for Dawn, this time using one of the fabulous sets she has designed. Dawn is all about bold colors and flowers and the Hop is filled with magnificent bouquets for Dawn! Leave it to me, I went simpler and less colorful because I've always loved this sweet little "Whale Wishes" set she designed back in 2011! To me it's a classic that will never go out of style!
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!*
