my mind? Regarding yesterday's post... I am now aware that Father's Day is the 19th, not the 12th. *sigh* If anyone sees my brain wandering around, please send it back to me.
I'm still making some fun things for my studio...I can't wait to show it to you all when I get finished. Soon, I hope. In the mean time, I'm still making cards from my huge stash of embellishments from swaps. One thing that is frustrating me is the lack of a way to identify who made many of them....they are all in a plastic bin, so I can't even tell what swaps they came from, and, if there is no signature (or the siggy is a Cricut Board Name), I can't let you know who made most of them. if you're in swaps, people, please sign your name IRL to the items!
So, in addition to making the cards quickly and easily from these embellies, I'm also working hard to make my cards flat. I mail most of the ones I send out (seldom do I hand one to someone...) and flat is cheaper and better for the Post Office. Also, since I'll be making a few to send along with Kate's guy, Brian, on a submarine, I need to make them take up as little space as possible. So, flat and lightweight are my key words here.
This card meets neither of the above criteria. Isn't that just like me? The tag at the base of this had a smaller lifeguard stand, but I jazzed it up by making a larger one (from the Life's a Beach cart) and added a toothpick pole to the umbrella. I put it over the one that came on the tag with foam dimensionals. I added the white faux stitching, too. I adhered the tag to a plain blue A2 card base, added a cute little sun (also from an inchie swap) and the word *Summertime* with self-adhesive letters in red. I think this will make a cute card as a thank you for a summer party or as a thinking of you card for someone who needs a boost.
I'll have another card for you tomorrow....be blessed!
