More cards....

I tried to get to bed before 12...but it didn't work and now I've got a teeny burst of energy, so as I promised...another of the cards I made for my DD's stash. One of my Bible study sisters has commissioned me to make 8 card holders with 4 cards each. Finally, I'm gonna make a few $$ on my stuff. I can design them any way that I want to as long as I include birthday, get well, sympathy. I will probably use several of the designs I did for my daugher. My only problem, is I like to embellish and if I do, it will be a "struggle" to fit the cards neatly into the holder. That would make the project look unfinished, so I'll have to be careful about that. I know I can go to SCS's Clean & Simple section and I do love most of what I see. But for me, it can be difficult to replicate, even when I think I'm CASing. This one almost qualifies except for the MS butterfly. He is far too glittery, although he does look better in real life. I don't know what I could use instead...punched leaves? A prima flower doesn't fit...nor a bow. Maybe some very flat pearls or the Michaels's flowers which are rather simple and can be colored with Copics. I have my work cut out for me in the next few weeks.
Ashley Newell is hosting video tutes on her blog. Go visit and show her some love...she's a little nervous (I sure don't know why). Her weekly videos are named the catchy, "Watch Me Wednesday." I know I will be. You can find it here,
Be blessed this Thursday.
