Do you hear, if you tilt your head 'just so', a distance noise, rolling over the prairies, echoing off mountains, rallying through hills and valleys? It's me, cheering and applauding that the 16 cards for my niece and nephew's day-care teachers is a wrap! Woo hoooo!!! My exuberance to celebrate 'completion' is a tad premature, however, as I still have the classmates' cards to finish, and the pressure's on, as they need to be mailed by Monday! Eek! I'll be sharing a few later (be warned *grin*).
The two 'finales' are, once again, mini envelopes (space for a teacher-treat). They're both heading to
Simon Monday Challenge: Love Notes
and Simon Wednesday Challenge: Have a Heart
The first, however, is off to a new-to-me challenge, over at a new-to-me site, owned and operated - and filled with dazzling delights - by Laura Davis, called A Day in the Life of A Paper Poppy (see: artistry in action even in her blog's title). How exactly I landed in Laura's place, escapes me...a wander around blogland to some of my familiar sites, a click on an entry, a meander here, a jaunt there, and suddenly, there I was. From what I've seen, Laura is one snappy, snazzy crafter, so please, do go visit!
Laura offers monthly challenges, and although my little tidbit doesn't hold a candle to the entries already submitted (Chupa being one. 'nuff said), I figured out a way to 'small scale' the sketch and I 'think' it works okay. Fingers crossed Laura will agree.
Here's Laura's February sketch:
followed by my mini...
and my other mini (the Simon Challenges only dude)
Off to work on some kid Valentines...back later!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
