I hope everyone is having a most fabulous weekend doing whatever makes your heart happy.
My entire day – no exaggeration, I mean ENTIRE – has been solely focused on all things card-related. Nasty weather, combined with my husband out of town once again (yes, we do have the occasional weekends together…J), so I did precisely what I wanted. You’d think with the hours upon hours I dedicated, I’d have a plethora of cards to share. Nope. Hours invested did not translate to productive output. Sum total of my accomplishments: 2.5 cards. Sum total of my dithering around, trying something, abandoning said something, looking at blogs, more playing, plenty of scrapping: HUGE! If we were to calculate a ratio, it would be embarrassing, so I’m not going there (but a ball park would likely be .5 accomplishment:99.5 whatever else I was doing. Yeesh!) Mr. Mojo, I believe, was resting on his laurels and I can’t blame him; my niece’s Advent Calendar was quite the production this week. One more item to be made, and hers will be a wrap. Then we turn to my nephew’s…
One of my completed cards is for Paper Smooches SPARKS: Designer Drafts challenge.
As I’ve mentioned before, my PS Christmas stamps span the Merry Christmas sentiment set only. I do, however, have other PS items (and you’ll see a ‘number’ of them on my Advent Calendars), so I adapted and in so doing, tinkered a bit with the sketch…(grrr..to this stickykeyboardthat is drivingmecrazy!)
My numbers are cut from red shimmery paper, which you can see better in this photo:
Just in case: my 'frame' is meant to represent the "focal" portion of the sketch, and the #5,
popped up, is my interpretation of the hexagon image. Hope this sort of makes sense...
I'm also linking to Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge: Anything Goes. The number of entries is astounding - over 425! Talk about inspiration potential! Hazel: you're amazing for organizing this for us, on top of your weekly challenge, which, should anyone need some ideas, invites us to create a Christmas card that features *indoors* in some ways (visions of stockings hanging on a bough suddenly popped into my mind...hmmm).
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
