While I am mulling that over, let me show you the two quickie cards I created today (I KNOW! NOTHING for the entire month of January and now - BOOM! - two in one day!). Both were for Papertrey Ink's 6th anniversary celebration sketch challenges. The first was for Sketch 1:
(Shoot! I just realized the sketch was in portrait and my card is in landscape - sniff sniff... does it still count?)I used PTI's 'Sign Language' for the little boxes which were punched with a 1" square and matted with a 1 1/8" square and popped up with dimensionals, and 'Simple Valentine' for the sentiment. Added a large heart shaped rhinestone and VOILA - clap clap, done! The second card is based on Sketch 5:
(Oh thank goodness, got the orientation right on this one! Goodie!)
The geometric elements are from PTI's 'Dot Spot' and the sentiment is from 'Think Big Favorites #7' (I really need to get some more of these big bold sentiments for my collection, I have a precious few). Colorful and postage friendly - two good things right?
Alrightie, back to the issue of celebrating my 200th post. Since I used PTI this week and they are celebrating their anniversary, why don't I celebrate with a PTI prize? One person who leaves a comment on this blog post will be randomly chosen to win PTI's Life stamp set (unfortunately, with the increase in postage rates I cannot afford to ship overseas anymore, so I have to limit the celebration to USA residents & APO/FPO addresses only, I feel very badly about this, but just can't afford the shipping with my tutoring sessions being so few and far between at the moment, I hope you understand and can forgive me).
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope your weekend was wonderful and that you have a terrific week ahead!
