Well here I am on this beautiful Sunday, blessing the Lord for all the sunshine he is sending our way. I have to admit, I can handle the cold and snow so much better (about 99.9%), as long as the sun is shining. Here in Michigan, noted for the least amount of sunshine in the states, I always feel like it is a blessing to see the sun.
Yesterday was card class day and I created some really different (and a little more challenging) cards. This class was not a "stamp-a-stack" so I could have cards that took a little longer than 10 minutes to re-create. But I have to tell you, and this is the truth, my customers met the challenge with flying colors and said they enjoyed learning the new techniques. They water colored with crayons for the first time, did a gate-fold card using a difficult fine-lined stamp to emboss, did some paper piecing, and created a beautiful gift-tag holder (I will post that, with step-by-step directions, next post). Here are three of the cards:
|Here is my "oopsie" card that I used just to demonstrate how it would look without watercoloring everything (or everything but the sky -- LOL).|
In addition, there will be two items on sale for 24 hours only (November 21, 12:01 AM – 11:59 PM [MT])—so make sure you don’t miss the first 24 hours of Online Extravaganza! Even I don't know what these items are, so I can't wait to find out!!!
Remember your blessings on Thanksgiving Day!
"To every thing there is a season. . . . A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance." -- Ecclesiasters 3:1 - 4
Lord, thank you for blessing me with the knowledge that as I grow older, there will always be new life, new joy, and new discoveries. -- Sandi
