Happy Soggy Morning!
It's your typical wet day here in Southern Ohio. A great day to stay inside and craft. I used to say "read," but not since stamping has taken over my life:) I made a very quick card last night for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge 100!
I really liked this card until I decided at the last minute to outline the "OCT" in Choc Chip ink. AHHH! I hate when I ruin a card by adding "one more thing." I didn't have time to start over. This is a shaker card and I haven't done one in FOREVER. It's always so fun to go back and revisit old techniques. My step mom's birthday in coming up. I'm embarrassed to say that I have never made her a card before. Shame on me! I'm trying to be a better person and I know with all that she is dealing with this card will make her extremely happy. I can bet that the next time I go visit it will proudly be displayed in the kitchen. Just knowing how much it will mean to her that I remembered her birthday makes me feel good.
I used some Jenni Bowlin paper again. This time I paired it with the coordinating chipboard buttons. I also used ANOTHER stamp from my Unity KOTM. I circled her birthday in red and the inside says, " Celebrate! It's Your Day!"
October 16th is an important date for another reason. It is the last day to be entered into my drawing for blog candy. Make sure you check that out HERE. I still have a very long way to go in my goal for raising money for Priscilla. So if you haven't donated yet, please take a few minutes to do so. $5 is all it takes to be entered into the blog candy giveaway. Just think....that's less than a trip to Starbucks, eating out for lunch, a stop at a gas station for a pop and a snack or a pack of cigarettes. For less than a small treat for yourself you could be helping someone to pay for medical bills. I hope to spread the word today to get closer to my goal. All your help is very appreciated.
Thanks for stopping by!
