I'm stranded at home today while we're down a vehicle. I let my husband take mine to work while his gets repaired. His new vehicle (that we just got in November) did a little slippin and slidin in the snow yesterday. We haven't gotten a written estimate on the damage yet but at the moment, the ballpark figure is at least three grand (ouch - thank goodness for insurance). We're going to be inconvenienced for a little while longer while it gets put back together. So here I sit alone in the house, just me and my two cats. It's been a wonderfully quiet day. :)
My daughter and I went to our monthly crop at the LSS last Saturday. I was a slacker when it came to packing so I didn't have a whole lot to work on. I did get a few projects done though. It was just enough to keep me busy for the five hours we were there.
I made the page above using some old school techniques. This was so simple to do! I used a doodling template for the swirls. I just outlined it all in pencil, then took my black Zig marker and colored away. I used paper punches for the daisies and stars and added silver Stickles to the daisies. The title was done with an old school alphabet template - remember those? We used to outline our letters, then cut them out by hand with scissors. I took the easy way out and, just like the swirls, I outlined with pencil and colored it all in with my black pen. I'm guessing this took me about an hour start to finish. The best part was I was able to sit and chat and not really put a whole lot of thought into it. I just doodled away. :)
This card is a variation of the one in my banner. I made it to look like my house. My house doesn't have a blue door but maybe someday it will. ;-) I'm going to attach this card to a piece of cardstock (haven't decided the color yet) and frame it as a wall hanging. I tried to find a "Home Sweet Home" stamp to use below the house on the wall hanging but I can't find exactly what I need. Having one custom made is way beyond my budget. If I use a light colored cardstock for the background I'll do it with my printer.
Thanks for looking!
