Just a 'by the way' - I used to be a high school English teacher (I know, I know - hard to believe, given my not-so-fancy-schmancy writing skills demonstrated on my blog!!) for many X several years, until the seemingly endless marking/prepping amongst other things made clear that an exit was needed. Hard decision, and one I'm still contending with (I often 'should' all over myself...should have' done this, or that, or something else...), but overall, stepping 'outside' has been positive (more card-making time!!). At present, I'm an education assistant/admin assistant at the Outreach portion of our school district, where interacting with teachers and students still comprise a major portion of my day. I get to 'be at school' but I don't have to take it home with me. If a "good fit" teaching opportunity opened up, I might think about thinking about returning to the profession, however, it would have to be really, really up my alley. Perhaps some day... Anyway, morning babble done (and thanks for listening!!).
Two cards today round out the card-making flurry that characterized much of these past few days of holiday. They're heading off, via personal delivery by my husband, later in September, to my mother-in-law and my husband's sister. No reason other than 'just because.'
Seize the Sketch #2 called to me when it first appeared
- the 'perfect' layout for my Hero Arts tulip. I made one - gold embossed and water-coloured pink - and then discovered a colour challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays #112.
One card became two cards...and if I had an audience in mind, I'd likely have made 3...4...5.
Card 1 - for Seize the Sketch #2 only (gold embossed tulip - new technique for me!)
Card 2 - for Seize the Sketch #2 and CAS-ual Fridays #112
Thanks so much for dropping by; your company and comments are ever so welcome and appreciated.
