I wanted to share this card with you. Yup, another easel card. My friend and co-worker is retiring after 38 years the end of February and I wanted to make her a card. I wanted the card to showcase someone having fun with what she is doing or going to be doing. Well, this image is the one that caught my eye. I have these Anya stamp sets that I have never used before. I think it is just the right stamp for this card. I am very surprised as it turned our pretty much what I wanted it to. This never happens to me, specially when I am in a rush to make a card. What was really amazing is I finished this in less than an hour, last night. Now that was pretty quick. I did have help. Thank you Friday Sketchers for an awesome sketch. When I saw the sketch, I thought, this is it. So, an hour later I have my card ready for posting. This is the time my stomach cramps started. I wanted to post the card so I went ahead to make sure my images were all done and ready. Then, all of a sudden my puter shut down. I was in so much pain last night, I didn’t bother to power the comp again. Yes, I didn’t save anything, and yes I was pulling my hair, and of course talking to myself again and you all know what else. not just because of the pain but because I forgot to save again. So starting today, I will keep in mind to save every so often. I will be giving this card to Ann, my friend tomorrow before her party. I won’t be able to stay for her party as I am scheduled for training for work all afternoon when her party is ongoing….Anyway, here is a closer look at Anya.
I am glad to finally have this card posted. I was even able to enter this into some challenges:
Friday Sketcher – Sketch
Anyone for Anya– Something completely different. I have a few out of the ordinary thing for this card. First this is the 1st time I am using this stamp. My first time to enter into this challenge. Another, only used one paper. It is not easy for me to use only one paper I love collage, remember. Next, 1st time to use my crocheted flowers. Why, well I wasn’t too happy with how the flowers turn out. The crocheted hearts were okay to me. So now you tell me, I really hope they look okay. Next, this is only the 2nd time for me to use brads, ribbon/bow and flower all together in one card. I still have trouble using ribbons/bow even with my bow easy. I also have trouble putting all these embellish together. I hope this will count.
ABC Challenge – O for One paper.
