I spent last night making a card that really turned out great. I know it sounds like I’m bragging, but that card spent most of it’s life in the “hot mess” phase. I was really seriously doubting that it would actually make it to YouTube. The card used a Stamp TV, Gina K technique called watercoloring under embossing or maybe it was embossing over watercolor. Regardless, the secret is covering all of your mistakes with black ink on a foam dauber. You’ll have to see it to believe it, but the card is cute (and I honestly never thought I’d be able to say that during the making of the card.)
I enjoy making cards like that, because it allows viewers to see someone else make a horrible mess and then redeem it. It helps them to realize that a lot of people have a difficult time making nice cards, but it happens, sometimes when you least expect it. This card is a real tribute to not giving up, and believe me, I wanted to..
We had a rainy, drizzly morning here, so I didn’t do very much but fold some laundry and read. I have another card I’d like to tackle tonight, so I have more work for Rich. He’s still not feeling well from his appointment, and I’m hoping tomorrow is a better day. He said he’s hurting a lot worse than before and was willing to take some pain medicine, which is really unusual for him to do.
I’m making him a dinner he really likes. Sausage sandwiches…I hope it cheers him up a little bit. And then off to the craft room.
