Because I Care
Busy busy week! Son had swimming lesson tonight (with Daddy) and I took little girl to buy a new pair of sneakers, but not just any sneakers. She got a pair of Skechers Twinkle Toes, which are the coolest little girl shoes in the universe!!! We had to go straight from the mall up to the gym where swim lessons are so that she could show Daddy her light up shoes right away (of course she wore them out of the store!). By the time we had all that excitement and got the shoes off long enough to bathe, Mommy was WORN OUT!!! I went up to my scrapbook room tonight, but put forth only a halfhearted effort and didn't like the results. I put that aside for another day (something may strike me with that card later) and luckily had a couple of things made from the weekend. Today's card is one of those. This is another sneak peek from the new catty, a level 1 hostess set called Because I Care. I colored the flower with the new Marina Mist marker, and then 'thumped' Perfect plum on it. I wasn't planning on cutting out the flower, but I got a new Tonic cutter and I'm still on the upward slope of the learning curve and I cut too close to the edge on one side. I didn't want to waste the whole thing, so I was kind of forced to fussy cut. I like it though - it doesn't automatically look cut out, but it gives the card some really nice dimension. Also new on this card is the Marina Mist 1/8" ribbon.
