Simply Sunday from 9/25
I'm not doing my best work lately, don't know what's going on for sure. This card is for the Simply Sunday challenge at Getting Cricky. It was supposed to be fall related so I made this card that I will probably stick in the mail and send to my mom (she's in a nursing home) or a friend of hers (mine too) who is feeling her age lately. She's in her upper 80's so that can be a lot to feel some days (she would appreciate the play on words, promise!). The paper is random pieces I pulled out of my scrap pile. The round stamp is one I found at Big Lots. It's from Inkadinkadoo. I used Kristal's Fall-O-Ween set inside the circle. Her stamps are clear plus they are mix and match. I put the stamps inside the circle and figured out where they looked best, then put the acrylic block on top and they stayed in just the right position. I used a glitter pen that Mary from Cardz TV showed a few weeks ago. It's really cool. I went over the flowers and the capital letters for a little extra shine on a pretty muted card. The brad is from the Eyelet Outlet. There is a little hook on the bottom that you can string things through. The ribbon is some old stuff I had around the house. (Yarn is a bad 4-letter word to my daughter, I have so much). The circles were cut with the scalloped circles Nestabilities die. (hate it when I spell stuff and it just looks wrong:( ) We're having a rainy weekend, which is great for crafting! Hope everyone has a good one.
