Of course, you know this means the Big House will be next. We did a complete remodel in 2007 and I just realized that the small cupboards over the refrigerator have not been opened since then! Obviously, I don't need to keep whatever is up there and it's not the only crevice that should be emptied. My new thinking is that empty shelves are okay. Just because I have room for something doesn't mean I have to save it for Justin Case!
But that's not why you called. Even as much fun as organizing is, I can't help but stop and get a card fix every now and then. Here's a quick Onefer I made to keep my toe in.
- CAS Stencil: Sponging. This is a brand new challenge by the talented team of Loll and Bonnie and it is another fun one! I hope you will check it out for all the details and a list of four great video links!
- CAS(E) This Sketch.
- City Crafters: You mean the world to me. I'm sorry to report that this challenge is closing after nine years. Thank you to Kirsty and her talented Team for all their hard work, wonderful inspiration, and fun challenges over the years! You will be missed!
- Less Is More: Water.
- Pixie's Snippets Playground: Anything goes, as long as you use your snippets!
I was wondering how you would feel if you received a handmade card that was just a beautiful card front with a written message on the reverse, like a postcard, except that it would be enclosed in an envelope with a stamp on it so you would still have the fun of opening an envelope?
Not counting one-layer cards, I'm thinking that the most fun I have making cards is creating the front and not the part where I have to prepare and score a card base to attach it to. If I skipped that step, I would be saving lots of time and trees. It especially seems like a good idea for batch-making birthday cards and Christmas cards because I make so many of them.
What are your honest thoughts? Have I lost the plot or am I a genius? Would you be offended, or feel short-changed, or do you think I might be on to something?
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower! Please let me know you came by so I can be sure and return the flavor!
