I know....it's been a WHOLE WEEK since I posted. Last we chatted -----I was making Chili for the NFC Championship Game. And what a game! Could you hear me yelling??!??? I was *exhausted* when it was over! Absolutely one of the most thrilling games I have ever watched!!! I'm already planning my menu for the Superbowl next Sunday......so if you have any suggestions I'm all ears!!
So it's been a busy week, what with all the gloating & such....but I did manage to make a card for yesterday's Friday Sketchers sketch!
This is definitely one of my favorite Tilda images, & my good friend Tammi was kind enough to send me some until I can buy it for myself. I added lots of glitter, Liquid Applique & Sparkly Fluff in all the right places....the papers are Basic Grey (Bittersweet & Sultry, I think)....the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink....lots of distressing (oh how I *hate* using that distress tool...gives me the willies....like nails on a chalkboard)....& VOILA, finally a card for a sketch challenge ON TIME!!
Thought I could get a good shot of all the sparkly since it's actually sunny out today but I'm not sure how much you can see. We were out the door when I was trying to take these pics so I had no patience. Just snapped a bunch & hoped for the best, lol!
I have so much to do this weekend & no motivation to do any of it!! I have a ton of cards I need to list on Etsy --but I have to finish the insides. I don't know why I don't do the insides when I do the card, but usually I'm sick of looking at it by the end & just throw it off to the side. Then when it's time to finish I have to scrounge for the papers I used! Not very efficient, I know. Matches the rest of my life :)
Off to do laundry, cleaning & some cooking ---yep all at once. I'm that good.
