I saw this quote on Instagram:
I told my friend that I'm emotionally "hitting a wall"
and she said, "Sometimes walls are there
so we can lean on them and rest."
So true. Also sometimes walls are there to hang up awesome art work created by family and friends ~ and us! I hope you're finding ways to rest when you're weary and create when you're not.
A lot of different companies came out of the vault to play when I created this fun card. The ruler, sediment, and pencil are all from "Worm Wishes," by Reverse Confetti. The easel is from "When Your Heart Speaks," by Taylored Expressions. The paint brush is from "I Heart Art," by Paper Smooches.
The coloring was done with my Ziggies and Hammy added the splat and the winking, which is barely noticeable in the photo, but abundant in real life.
- CAS(E) This Sketch!: Final sketch. Enjoy the break with your family, Chrissy, and thanks again!
- Pixie's Snippets Playground: A/G using your snippets. My snippets were used for all the elements on the card, all of which were fussy-cut. Not that you get extra credit for that.
- SSS Wednesday: A/G.
The images and sediment are from "Holiday Glass," by Avery Elle, embossed in liquid platinum, Ziggified, and winked. QACAS!
I'm joining with a lot of you and getting a start on my Christmas cards. I mean for time's sake, can you believe we are only a coupla days from starting February already?! Everything lined up perfickly in my large MISTI, so I made a batch while I was a tit.
(Snigger. We've all seen those examples of how important commas are. Looks like spacing matters, too!)
- AAA Cards: One layer (w/o option).
- Country View: Use a square.
- Less Is More: In a row.
- Rudolph Days: A/G using Christmas schtuff.
The kids got me a beautiful waxed amaryllis bulb for Christmas. I put it on the floor of the Playhouse to capture a photo of all four blooms from the top and while I was busy looking through the camera lens, Nellie hopped down from her divan, walked over, and licked up some pollen! Eek. Thankfully, it was harmless. It is fascinating how all the water and nutrients it needs to bloom are locked up inside the wax coating!
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy! LITS!* Keep safe!
I am relieved that the Mister and I have received our first vaccines and I hope it has happened (or will happen soon) for you, too. The peoples of the world are being mentally and physically challenged ~ and sadly dying ~ every day that this pandemic continues, so we are very thankful to all the scientists and technicians who have worked very hard round-the-clock to make the vaccines in record time. Now our thanks go to all those working hard to produce billions of those little vials and to all those administering the vaccines. Bless you!❤💋
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!
*Life is too short!
