It is World Card Making Day, people!!! Drag out those supplies and get to making some cards!!!! There are challenges, inspiration, and giveaways all over the internet, Facebook, blogs, etc. And some of them are HUGE!
I am a new found card making person since the summer and decided that I LOVE to make cards. I was anti-card before. Not in the "will never make a card kinda way"....but more of the "I don't have enough room to play and my cards are ICKY looking" kinda way! I always thought my cards were not pretty enough, etc. So, I forced myself to start making them and.....just like with anything else....practice helps!
note: I am not stating perfect....nope.....because my cards aren't!!!
Thought I would share a card today. (ha ha!) It was part of the design team's challenge by Susan Dupre over at Nikki Sivils. Theme: Back to School -make anything you want!
Well, I decided to make a couple of things. One I already showed was the layout of me and my beloved Fannie girl when she passed her Canine Good Citizen test. You can see that entry HERE.
The other thing I decided to make was the card below.
American Crafts Cardstock, Watercoulor paper and pencils, Scotch Adhesive
This was my first true attempt and using my watercoulor pencils by mixing, etc. I was happy with my results! I know...most school houses you think of red...but my papers that I used were more orange in color than red and it just sort of worked out that way!! Plus, I think it gives it a nice fall type feeling!!!!
Ok, peeps...I am off to make some cards!!! (actually I think a shower first...gotta get up and going!) So this is just a fair warning...I will probably be showing lots of cards in the next few weeks!!! hee hee But I am totally a layout girl at heart!
Have a Scrappy Kinda (card-making) Day!!~~Katrina
