I had a most awesome weekend with my family (my niece and nephew are growing up waaaayyyy too fast! They are too. much. fun!) and now, back home (with time whizzing by!), I realize that Mr. Mojo didn't travel back with me. I'm in slow - and in some case, reverse - gear in card-making. So many ideas; so little success in executing them. Grrr...but we carry on!
I brought back, from my mom's, a smattering of older cards that, in looking at them now, I wonder what I was thinking! And I posted them! Eeeek! I dismantled several, managing to salvage several bases and other bits, and feel much better for doing so. New rule (or rather, 'old' rule) to be adhered (sorry...tee hee) to more firmly: only the cards I would be proud to send to someone will receive photo-ops and blogging status. Of course, that's entirely open to interpretation on any given moment but....you get my drift. Dud-reduction: that's my goal.
Anyway...time to shift from 'thinking out loud' to sharing my card. The other day, sweet Stephanie, from My Ink Well, mentioned a new-to-me challenge over at The Friday Mashup #210~It's All About the Lace. Isn't that cake elegant...and do you see the butterflies? Yep...went for it!
Here's my paper-and-ink translation of that lovely orange cake, with its array of butterflies...Simple, in the grand scheme, and yes, I think this is a 'send' card. I already have someone in mind...
