Ok, it's almost 9:30 pm --I still have to fold laundry, put dishes away, check homework (hope it's right, since my kids are both in bed & unable to correct it!) & make lunches for tomorrow. But --- priorities --- must post my card!!
I don't even know why this is my hobby --seems I get SO frustrated every time I make a card. Either I don't have the right color ribbon or paper -- or my coloring is not right ---or, my sewing machine poops out & I want to throw it out the window! That's what happened tonight -- I really need a new one. The zig zag part is long gone --I can only straight stitch ---& sometimes that doesn't even work out. The thread kept getting caught & I'd have to redo the bobbin & I can barely see the hole in the needle (gotta stop putting off getting the bifocals!!) & I swear my blood pressure goes sky high, lol! Such a relaxing craft this is!
ANYHOO ----- here is my card ---made with Cherry Tilda from the Cozy Autumn Collection. I colored the image with Copics --- & because the coloring part of my card didn't go so well either, she is cut out & ever so lovingly placed on the Bench. The papers are Basic Grey Bittersweet & Autumn Leaves & the sentiment is Hero Arts. Lots of Stickles & punches & dies & flowers --the usual :)
I used the sketch from this week Friday Sketchers blog. I am also entering this into the Totally Tilda challenge (Fruity Tilda) & the Magnolia Down Under challenge (Flower Power). Gosh I don't think I've ever entered more than one challenge at a time --I'm usually not organized enough to even know what challenges are out there for the week!
Thanks so much for visiting, & for listening to my rant :) I'm going to go finish my household duties then go to bed & try to NOT think about all the things I have to get done tomorrow!
