I'm back to work today, on the road for a couple of days, but managed to schedule some posts. Isn't Changito just so cute? I have several of these cuties, but don't use them as often as I should. I admit that is partly because I've always had trouble coloring them well. I finally played around with Flower Soft - this one I just got from DAT'S and is the ultra-fine version. By the way, my stitching is crooked on purpose - just in case you were wondering! lol
This is one of the cards I will be doing for my class at DAT'S on April 21st. Since this is a somewhat generic card, I will provide a few different sentiments to use. One of the things that is so fun about acrylic stamps is how you can manipulate them into slightly different shapes. I managed to "curve" my sentiment enough to fit in my circle appropriately. I was so happy when I realized this was going to work as I was having a hard time figuring out where to place my sentiment. To be truthful, I often find that the hardest thing when creating cards. I seem to get everything else laid out and then - oh no, where will I put that sentiment? Does anyone else have that problem or is it just me? Maybe it is just bad planning.
I went ahead and finished up the inside, leaving some room for a note if need be. I didn't use a sentiment on the inside since class participants will have a choice of which one to use on the outside. It's been a long time since I've taught a class - should be fun! I hope to have the second card made and posted next weekend.
I am entering this card in the challenge at The Townscrapper which is to make a card with a spring theme - which can include anything to do with warmer weather, outdoor activities etc. I thought this one fit nicely into the challenge. It isn't quite soccer weather yet, but it won't be too long!
Have a great day!
