I've got a busy day today/week ahead (we're going camping later this week for an extended weekend), so I'm gonna make this post short and sweet. Since I usually jabber on way too much, I know you can appreciate a quick one. ;)
Here's a card I made for my sweetheart of a daughter, Monica. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch, what I call the 'mini Giggle Grove' trees from one of my very favorite Unity KOMs (Friendship. Love. Miracles.), a sentiment from Verve's Circular Sayings set, and some more paper from my Urban Rhapsody collection stack (that I love, LoVe, LOVE!...hope you're not getting too tired of looking at it, cuz I don't think I'm through with it yet -lol).
This was a really fun one that went together pretty quickly. The shocker here (for me anyway) is that I'm actually posting a card I made with a CURRENT sketch! lol
The d'vine Swirl embossing folder reminded me of the wind we've been having along with some of our recent thunderstorms, so I thought that design would be appropriate for the upper panel. lol
I did notice something rather strange with that particular folder of mine this time and wondered if anyone else has this "issue": There are four small rectangles lightly etched into the folder (one in each corner of the folder...on BOTH sides, so a total of eight), right along with the design itself, that transfer to the embossed piece of CS. They didn't show up as noticeable on the flip side (debossed side) of the CS, so I went ahead and used that. Plus with the sanding, it made it even less noticeable. I just thought it was really weird and it's not on any of my other folders (that I've noticed). Not sure why I haven't noticed it on this one before, but I'm definitely not likin' it...but what to do?? And I don't think I paid extra for it. lol So what I want to know is if it's just mine, or if it's a universal defect with that folder.... If you have one of these d'vine Swirl folders, would you mind checking yours and leaving me a comment with what you find? Muchas gracias!
Well, I think that's about it. So much for short and sweet --I should've known it wasn't possible. ;)
I've been busy making up some pre-scheduled posts to share with you until we return from our trip and I have time to get back on the computer -- I'm sure lovin' this summer schedule! ;D But in case my posts aren't delivered (again...SO frustrating) by FeedBlitz, you may want to check back from time to time. I hope you'll like what you see. ;) Oh, and just so you can't say I didn't warn ya...I got a leetle long winded --surprise, surprise. lol
Thanks so much for the visit, enjoy your day...and your week!, and I hope you'll stop by again soon. Until then, many blessings to you!
