The week after Convention is always a funny mixture of coming back down to earth and still being on a high. I had Team Meeting on Monday, and it was great to relive it all, and share with those who weren't able to make it along this year. And then I've had 3 classes this week too. Plus, it's Amy's birthday on Sunday, so I've had a few bits and pieces to do for that. Can you believe I'm going to be the mother of a teenager?? That spins me out. Thankfully, she is still a sweetie (no sign yet of the teen attitude and moodiness I have been told is just around the corner!).
I haven't managed to share a card all week. I've made a couple...Amy's Birthday card for one! Shannon West showed us a clever card using the Circle Scissor and making a spiral pop-up inside, and I've made a butterfly version for Amy. I haven't taken a pic yet, but when I do, I'll pop it on here. It turned out really cute. Amy even told me what colours I had to use!
In the meantime, here's my other Technique card from this month. this one uses a variation on the Joseph's Coat technique (a form of emboss resist)
Lots of brayering on this one!
...and that Melon Mambo sure is bright!
What an amazing idea I am going to play that it will be great for atcs too. Happy Birthday to your daughter as a high school teacher I don't think all teens have to be moody so I'm sure everything will be fine.ReplyDelete
It is gorgeous Marelle!ReplyDelete
