Sorry. I'm not impling (or is it inferring) that you are a sour puss. The sour puss is the little chicita below. She's normally not one either, but for a small moment in her life she got caught.
So do you know how you plan to be ultra creative and you actually have a weekend to do so AND you are super excited about it? Well, it will never work out as planned. That was my weekend and this is what I did. That's it. One layout. I have one thing to say about it. As stated above she is never pouty. Well, rarely. I have to say that here, because one day she is going to find my blog and wonder why I would lie. I have to keep it real, because someday she will be supporting me and I want her to pick out a nice nursing home. Love ya, Em. Friendship Village is a really nice home for seniors. Just a hint.LOVE CARD
To be quite honest I also made a card. I was doing the Inspired DT challenge at Studio Calico. This week's DT was Nicole Samuels. I really like this card she made: Love Card. Thought I would make a clear card, too. Have you ever tried to make a clear card? I am giving Nicole credit. It is not easy. You get fingerprints everywhere, static cling and dust globs magnetizing to the acrylic and then on top of that you have to creatively hide the adhesive. Remember above where I stated there was no creativity this weekend? That was true about hiding the adhesive. LOL! OK...it wasn't that bad. I came up with this. Not even close to the masterpiece of Nicole's, but I tried. Oh and photographing a clear card is even harder than making one. For sure!HI
So while I wasn't busy being unproductive, I was shopping. Have you seen the little gems in the photo below? They are the new border punches by EK Success. I am not normally a punch person, but had to have these. I went way overboard, but they were on sale and...uh...oh forget it...idon't have to make any excuses. I bought them and that is that. Anyway...I like that the designs are more petite/finer than Fiskars and I love that they have a little switch on the bottom that holds the punch closed. Easier to store. The only disappointment I have is that the zigzag one is pictured as if it has stitch lines. The punch out does not. Maybe I got a faulty one. Anyone else have one that does have the stitch lines? Let me know. You can find these at Michael's. Head there now and don't forget your coupon!BYE
Well, that's enough from me. I hope you have a wonderful Monday! Thanks for stopping by.
