On Saturday I took a Gatefold Album class at Scrapville in Greenville. What a cute album! When I manage to find the digital camera, I will upload pictures of it to my blog.
In the meantime, I bought some beautiful paper and a small set of "Inchies" at the store, so I had to come home and create. The challenge I made this card for is called "Fly Away" and features anything that flies. I used birds, bugs and butterfly stamps and Adirondack's Wild Plum ink to stamp the images on white CS. The patterned paper was double-sided, so I mounted the images to the back side of the paper and then to a slightly larger piece of white CS. I then tied a white striped ribbon around it before mounting it on the card. The base of the card is white CS with the floral paper mounted on it.
I have designed two different Christmas cards and will be posting them soon. It seems Thanksgiving is almost upon us so Christmas is sure to follow in a hurry.
I'm not basically a football fan, but I have been a Dallas Cowboys fan for years. This year the team has been just sorry. How embarrassing is it to have the newest, most modern stadium in the sports world and a Super Bowl coming up and a sorry, sorry home team. All those high-dollar players need to get out there and do their jobs! That's what they're paid for, and professional football is not a sport ... it's a business. We'll see what happens under new leadership.
