Summer Countdown Begins!!!
Woohoo ladies, are ya with me? Many of you know that I have a part time job as a substitute teacher. I sub mostly at the high school, and boy do I have stories for you!! Well, this subbing stuff (ha, we used to have a local sandwich shop called Sub-N-Stuff, it was GOOD!..I digress)is really getting in the way of my CRAFTING and I am not liking it one bit. But my husband says that my CRAFTING is getting in the way of paying bills, so off to work I go! Whatever(my favorite word!)!!
Sooooo, in leiu of me playing the tagging game-although I thank you all for always thinking of me-I am going to post cards that represent what I'm officially naming my **Countdown Til I Quit My Job For The Summer** challenge. We can all play along and post a link back here to our creations. That way, I can spread the word about all your wonderful blogs or galleries, plus have a little fun and see all the different ways that we meet the challenge. If you wanna participate, go for it. If not, enjoy the cards I post and as always, thank you for visiting my blog. Here's how it works: If I post a creation that relates to my summer countdown, I'll list a challenge for you too! Be sure to post the link to your card so we can see it in the comments section. Easy peasy, have fun!!
Back to the cards now.....both of these cards were created with the new Papertrey Faux Ribbon set. Other supplies include PT Green Thumb set, My Mind's Eye patterned paper, SU! Kraft CS and various inks. For the faux ribbon, I made long strips of ribbon samples and then just cut up *snippets* to use on cards. I crumpled and stitched on the three at the top of the main image of the boots card. I love to do this *messy stitch*...just stitch back and forth three times to adhere *ribbon*, real or faux.
The boots card was made for my friend Miss Becky. She is our new school secretary and the poor thing is about to go nuts. It's a crazy time of year with end of school sports events, etc and she is ready for summer. We are going to have margaritas together..not at school!! I'm giving her this card tomorrow along with that yummy little morslet of chocolate that has a coffee kick inside. Yummayyyy!
So here's my first challenge: Make a card that screams *HANG IN THERE*...or something similar. Surely you have a friend that could use a card like this these days! Or send them to me for quality inspection! LOL!!
Tip of the day: Today's tip comes from my dear friend HB (Carol)...she has created the *make and mail* policy. When you have the chance to MAKE some cards, be sure to MAIL out at least a few of them. Those cute cards are meant to be shared! Have fun everyone!!
