another volume of card creations - volume 8 this time - has hit the stands. i haven't received my copy yet, but i took a quick look when i was in b&n the other night and there are some great cards in it, as always. if you don't have a copy of this special issue yet, you can catch a glimpse of what's in it over at the paper crafts connection blog or the moxie fab world blog - just scroll down to last week's posts.
and this weekend was a successful card making weekend - 60 cards ready to send off to owh.
welcome to stop 43, or thereabouts, on the operation write home memorial day weekend bloghop. the assignment: red, white & blue missing you. i went for a fairly flat, not too embellished card so that it can easily be mailed in an a2 envelope and will hopefully make it to iraq unscathed. if this is your first stop on the the bloghop then head on over to the start. otherwise, click on through to the next stop...
and before i go i have some quick news to share with my regular readers - i some how made it into paper crafts magazine's gallery idol 2010 top 20 :) voting begins june 7th. and thank-you! to each of you that left a comment or sent a message yesterday.
it's been an eventful 4 years, a
very long last 4 weeks, and now only 4 more days together. i'm not sure
who's happier - me or them. and this year i'm even going to try and make
cards for some of my graduating seniors - the ones i still like, that
is. i'm thinking i'll make some more of these cards to give to the girls, but
not yet sure what the boys will get.
thank-you jane beljo! i was asked to be the guest designer for jane's newest digital stamp release - retro tulips. you can find retro tulips, along with many of jane's other doodles, over at squigglefly. to create my card i resized the retro tulips image to about 3-inches tall and printed it on the white card base. then i printed the image two more times, once on green paper and then again on a page torn from an old dictionary. before gluing down the tulip pieces i sprayed the flower portion with glimmer mist - i tried to get the glimmer to show up in a photo but it just wasn't happening.
