See, even when I'm away from my blog, I still think of all my readers...all two of you.
Last week, Engineer was off freezing in Detroit doing engineery things and I had the run of the house.
That's great for dinner time:
"What, boys? You want hot dogs for dinner? Coming right up!"
It's bad for everything else:
"I'm helping your brother right now, can't you ask your...oh, wait."
So while I did get to take over the table and make cards...I could only do it little bits at a time. It took me a couple of days, sadly, to make a Valentine's card. It's for Engineer so I'll have to wait a couple of weeks to post it...I think he reads this blog.
I made this card earlier this month for my CTMH unit swap. I kept it simple but wanted to think outside the box a bit. It uses next months SOTM. It's called Easter Eggs and strangely enough, it's full of eggs. I used one of the textured designs to stamp on the Just Blooms large flower, I tried to pick on that was close to the print on the paper pack. For the smaller flower, I added Juniper re-inker and water to my mini mister and sprayed until I got the shade I wanted. Then it was just a matter of sewing the button on. Yes, it's really stitched on, I don't like the look of naked buttons.
