I Made A Card!!!
I was unloading all the boxes in the craft room and found this scrap of Kraft paper. Found my colored pencils, and another piece of cardstock! WhooHoo! I'm on a roll. So, stopped with the unpacking and decided it was time to just take a break and color. The image I used is from Newton's Nook. Simple card since I couldn't find much of anything else but after finding the twine and dies, I got it colored and all ready to go.........and then couldn't find the paper cutter to do anything else so it all sat there for a couple of days. Groan! Finally found the paper cutter yesterday and cut away. Also found a red heart. Now granted there's no red on this card so why I added a red heart I have no idea other than the fact, I found it and used it - so we'll deal with that. Then found the die and cut out one in blue too and added it. I mean, why not!
Ok, now I'm really rocking and rolling. Camera, charger, and cord for the camera - check! Adding it to Blogger in order to post - not so good. It was an all morning affair. It's amazing how you forget what you've done for so long but with some help from a cheat sheet, here it is.
The reasoning behind the Kraft and colored pencils (which I will say is NOT my cup of tea at all) is because of a challenge Darnell is having celebrating several things in her life. Because Darnell is such a sweetie, I figured I'd at least toss this in the mix and enter. Check out her challenge. I'll also enter this in the Inky Paws Challenge (to use a heart).
Everything else is going ok right now. We are finally moved in - correction.......everything is in the house. As far as putting it where it belongs and little things like that, it could be a while. A LONG while. I think Jim will be a happy little camper once I get the sheets off the windows and hang the curtains! Just hanging in there and hoping that 2017 is a much better year for us.
Anyway.............thanks for stopping by and I'll try to be back soon.
