Today is going to be spent in the garden shoveling 3 cubic yards of landscaper's mix onto all of my flower beds. That's a lot of mix and it will take two days, I'm sure. I should be decorating for Christmas, but I procrastinated doing this autumn chore for so long that it's time to pay the piper and "git 'er done." I know exactly WHY I put it off - I was having too much fun playing in paper and glitter. Whoops.
Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, I've been away from my craft room for a few days and am going through withdrawals. And they're not pretty. So no matter how much dirt I have to shovel tomorrow, I WILL be playing in paper and glitter by the end of the day. In the meantime, I'll pull another card to show you from my stash.
I made this card for my mother for Mother's Day this year. It was before I had discovered sketches and challenges, but I think it still turned out ok. I applied Perfect Pearls to the raised part of the dry embossed bottom layer and colored the image with Copics. The bow was tied with two ribbons at once, and I finished everything off with a few rhinestones and a small brass butterfly charm. I love charms.
Thank you for stopping by, and here's wishing you a lovely day. I'll have one too after the dirty work is finished. Ha!
