Are you having a 'Ruby Tuesday'? I am so far. I was stunned this morning to be awakened by thunder and lightning and SNOW!!! Yes, it is snowing, sleeting and raining in the DFW area. It may stick for a few hours in a few areas, but will be gone by Noon.
Well, I have a new little card to share. Valentine production has started in the craft room. I am working on getting my Valentine stash dwindled down to make room for other goodies. Some of my stash has been around for five or more years. I have been working with my 3 Birds on Parade cartridge. I love those little birds. They look so chipper and friendly. So, here is my creation for today:
Card Size: A2 (4.25" x 5.50")
Pink mat: 4.00" x 5.25" (cut 2x)
Patterned Paper mat: 3.75" x 5.00" (cut 2x)
Inside Sentiment Mat: 3.50" x 4.75"
Bird and Sentiment: 3 BIRDS ON PARADE, pg 71, Mailman + Mailman-s cut @ 2" + all layers using Shadow and Phrase features.
Cardstock: Darice (Core'dinations - Ivory, Pink, Hot Pink, Black, Light blue, Medium Blue and Bright Yellow)
Patterned Paper: DCWV (The Spring Stack)
Stickers: Mrs. Grossman's (Happy Hearts)
Stamp: Cardz TV Stamps (Happy Days - Happy Valentine's Day!)
Ink: Tsukineko (Momento - Tuxedo Black)
Adhesives: EK Success (Zig 2 Way Glue Squeeze & Roll Fine Ball Point Pen), Scotch (ATG and foam tape) and Xyron (500 Create-a-Sticker)
I am really liking the Zig 2 Way Glue Squeeze & Roll pen. It really helps with the very small pieces such as on the phrase. I thought that it was going to be an oops purchase, but it really has turned into a serendipity buy.
It is off to bed with me for a few hours. I have gotten my days and nights mixed up again. This damp weather has me aching a lot and I just can't sleep very well. A nice cup of chamomile tea will help a bit.
