As I was cruising blogs yesterday, commenting on CASology and CAS(E) This Sketch entries, I came across this card by Happy Dance:
I love the her use of the circles and it reminded me of this wreath card I made last Christmas, before I started MASKerade. And that made me happy, because I didn't have time to make a card on Friday (PD Day for the kids, so no crafting time!)
On another note, some of you have been asking me about my Christmas card orders. I made 134 cards for our Church to send to each family (I made these 12 at a time throughout the year, and if you want to see them, you can search using the label Church Christmas). Then I made 80 of these for a friend:
For the message, I used Melon Mambo embossing powder (rather successfully, I think (I was surprised at how well it showed up on the Night of Navy!)) and then I coated the snowflakes in glitter by putting a strip of 2" sticky strip on to melon mambo before cutting the snowflakes with my Cuttle Bug. Then I just peeled off the liner and popped them into the glitter. I used Lawn Fawn's Harold's ABC's - so easy because it's a fun font and straightness is not required! I embossed "from the Taylors" 80 times and then "Merry Christmas" 80 times. Another reason to love that alphabet is that it has 3 r's - someone was clearly thinking about how an alphabet would be used in real life situations!
Here's what my desk looked like:
Now I have 32 photo cards to make for another friend, and about 100 non-Christmas thank you cards for on of the teachers at my daughter's school to give to the breakfast club volunteers. Another busy weekend ahead!
