Happy Tuesday! I hope your week has started off okay. I ran some errands with Mallory yesterday and then watched movies the rest of the day. Both of us are anxiously watching for Mr. Brown . . . we took advantage of some of the sales and ordered movies online we couldn’t find in the stores. We’re antsy to say the least!
One of the things I want to do better with this coming year is actually sending/mailing all the cards I make. I know, I know! Mallory tells me all the time how can you not send cards . . . that’s what you do! So in hopes of being better, I went through my calendars and marked all the birthdays of family, sorority sisters, friends, etc., trying to stay on top of it all.
My brothers birthday is New Years Eve and believe it or not . . . I made him a card today and I’ll get it in the mail before I stop or it will never make it.
He’s a golfer and I wanted something masculine and golfy. I picked up my Graphic45 A Proper Gentleman and luckily I still had some of the golf images left in the paper. I picked one, mounted it on illustration board and then inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Its placed on a layer of ovals die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ S4-138 Petite Ovals – Large and S4-139 Petite Scalloped Ovals – Large. I needed a border, but not so froo-froo, so I settled on S4-243 Ric Rak Diamond Borderabilities® Petites and layered some twill and twine on top.
I hope he likes the card . . . I don’t think I’ve sent him one in many, many, many years. Hell, I’ve just started to talk to him again after a few years. Long story . . . sibling thing! See, I really am trying to better about it all!
I hope you have a great day . . . me, I’ll be in the studio working. It feels good after my short break!
