I did however make one card so far this week:
It's simular to my last card from my last post. I again clear embossed on some stripey pp (I HEART stripey PP!) and than colored in with some brown markers, this time I used two different colors of brown. I actually did the embossing last week but than wanted to try sewing on the ruffle ribbon. I don't have a sewing machine which is just sad considering my mom is a proffesional taylor! I had my mom sew on the ruffle ribbon which sounds so much easier than it was! She didn't seem to understand what I meant and it took her a few tries to get it! In the end she said oh how many more should we do? You should make a lot more cards like this! So funny! I told her I would like to do it and she reminded me that I can't even sew straight. Another thing to add to my list to learn from my mother. This easter I am going to try to learn a few of the Croation danties, my mom is an amazing baker and bakes Croation baking, I really should learn this! I can almost make perogies but they are quite time consuming! Back to the card! I mounted the card onto the base with foam squares, and I decided to go with a pink base to make the card have a spring feel, the paper is from a fall line but this is my favorite color combo! Pink, orange and brown is my favorite!
Products used: Bo Bunny PP, Hero Arts CG105, CL 272, clear embossing powder, SU scalloped punch, Bazill cardstock, ribbon, PTI button, SU chocolate chip ink.
I have a funny story to share, this morning I was giving my children a bath. I had finished washing and dressing Carter and I sent him to play while I washed Ariel. She asked me for a warm towel (one time I used a just out of the dryer towel and know she knows!) And the dryer is across the hall from the bathroom so I went to quickly put it in. I come back to find my son fully dressed sitting in the tub! I guess someone was not ready to get out! So funny! My daughter was even funnier with her comments of "How did he get in here?" and "Carter is a big boy now, he can get into the tub himself!" Life is so interesting with children, I love being a mom!
Thank you for reading and your wonderful comments I appreciate all of you!
