I'm slowly, slowly working on shifting direction from my extensive Christmas-themed creations (the 90 tags were so much fun to create and so effervescently received by my sweet sister-in-law), yet, in a twist of irony, the inspiration for my three cards features a Christmas themed image. Yes, I'm talking about TAWS BE Inspired #44 here, with this delightful photo:
I haven't played with TAWS challenges for far too long - something I intend to remedy this year - so this was a 'must' do. Alas, I also don't have any TAWS Christmas-themed stamps (again, something I plan to remedy, especially with the wonderful sale going on in celebration of TAWS' 3rd birthday), but I did receive some charming new stamps - In Stitches and Pieces - which I just *had* to use. They are, quite simply, cuteness, plus!! My inspiration comes primarily from the colours in the photo, and they all have a similar theme: love you to pieces. As I mentioned in my previous post, my camera was left behind at my parents', so I'm using my husband's camera on his Android phone. Yeesh, but my tech-savviness needs some attention (I still use - mainly as an alarm clock - an old-fashioned flip-top phone..), so this device = learning curve for me. Forgive wonkiness...
Because I'm 'helpless' without a sketch to guide me, each card is also linked to a challenge of that nature.
Card 1 is TAWS + Freshly Made Sketches #117
Card 2 is TAWS + Unscripted Sketches #237
Card 3 is TAWS + CAS(E) this Sketch #58
And now, since you're here (so appreciated!), a little something I think is super adorable. My niece is learning to print her name (she could type it quite a while ago):
A big T, followed by a nestled in big E, and then, who knew that the legs of the E would be perfect for two s's (okay, squiggles that are meant to be s's) and a rather well shaped A? TESSA...I think it's artistic (but then again, I'm Aunty C biased...)
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
