Sorry I've been MIA for the last couple of days. I've gotten super busy, and don't see it letting up anytime soon. And actual work-work has picked up. I've got a 10 week deadline to finish an application. Now ten weeks may sound like a long time, but when that includes design, development, and testing...10 weeks isn't very long. I was able to get some design work done this weekend though. Priorities, you know.
Enough of that, on to today's card. So, sometimes the sentiment you need for a card...just doesn't seem hallmark-ish. You know? Something like, "What the hell is your problem?", or "Are you fricken kidding me?", or "Get over it already.". Yeah...something tells me that wouldn't be a high demand set. LOL But sometimes you need a card just like that. Something to break the ice...something that you could only give to your true friends. But alas...I'll settle for a simple "Friend".
Here, I've paired that wonderful My Mind's Eye "Quite Contrary" paper with Wplus9's Funky Flowers. It had been a while since I used the set and I love how the quirky flowers look with the patterns and colors from the paper. Since there was already a ton of color and mixture of patterns I opted to leave the flowers as simple outlines. I love the contrast this creates and I think it adds some interest...what do you think?
I finished off the card with my new obsession, crochet thread. I can't get enough of it. I just LOVE how great it ties. It's not quite as stiff as twine, and has less silkiness to it than the DMC floss, making it super easy to tie bows. If you haven't tried it yet, you should...and the price for how much you get, AMAZING!!
A quick CONGRATS and good luck to all of my blog buddies who made it to the Papercraft's Gallery Idol Top 20!!! So deserved, all of you. I think I have been under a rock as I didn't even know it was going on until the last day. Oh well, I will have a blast cheering all of you on, and I can't wait to see who "wins it all"!
Thanks for stopping by tonight, now go get your craft on! ;o)
