A card, for stamping's sake
As you know from yesterday's WOYWW, I spent much time at my desk on Tuesday afternoon making a mess. After I'd finished with the Union flag stuff and bits that had to be done, I was still in the mood to play. (And not to tidy up!). The thing about 'play' for me is that it has to be productive. I am hopeless at sitting at my desk for three valuable hours and coming away knowing a bit more about a product but nothing in the way of any sort of completed project. It's a skill, this sort of impatient patience! So I cast around the web a bit, looking for something to spark my interest and sort of match what I had on the desk....lazy, huh!
I found a challenge at Woodware that suited my criteria and excited me enough to make me stand up, take the necessary one pace to my stamp shelves and pull out just what I needed. Funny when things come together in your head so fast, huh! Anyway, the challenge is to make a card using Turquoise and Brown. So I did. It features stamps by Stampendous and Magenta (and an Ippity gingham background) and a bit of MR bling and a wooden button. So I think it qualifies for the challenge. Either way, win win for me. Broke in a new stamp, played a bit and produced something viable!
We have two WOYWWers who live in the path of those terrifying tornadoes that we've seen on TV news this week - Elizabeth and Vickie. I know both are safe, but there's scarey beating hearts and clearing up to be dealt with.....sending you love girlfriends, and coping and calm and safety vibes.
