I have been sitting here working on an accordion card that I will share with you some other time. I have just decided that I am crazy, completely crazy. I have been setting unrealistic goals for myself that create stress and pressure that I do not need or want. I won't bother going into details. Just by putting that in print I have released some of the stress I have been feeling lately.
Before I head off to bed I will share a few of the birthday cards I have created recently. Here's the first one.
Hmm, there's a pink tint to that photograph that isn't a true reflection of the card. The tag that the flowers and sentiment are stamped on are white, not pink. I rediscovered how relaxing it is for me to watercolor with my distress ink pads. You cannot tell by the photograph but I brushed a coat of clear wink of stella over the watercolor in each of the vases. It made them sparkle and added a nice touch to the card.
I found the cake sticker on this card in the clearance section at Michaels. It was made by K&Company and came with 2 other stickers. You pull on the little tab along the side of it and the flames on the candles "get blown out".
I don't use my Nestability dies as often as I should. I used them to create the circles that you see on this card. The card came together so quickly that I realized I should be using those dies more often.
That's all I have for tonight. I am heading to bed. Will hopefully stop by again tomorrow.
