Back to a normal work week. Bleh! Back to school today for Tyler. He has a bad case of senioritis"...can't wait to graduate in June. Shelbie made it back to Norwich Saturday without any problems. So here we go with some more cards! This week at Bah! Humbug! they want us to use metallics. I combined this with Crafty Hazelnut's challenge to use silver, and my card ended up going in non-traditional Christmas colors direction. I had cut the snowflakes from some foil paper and they looked pretty but were missing some pizzazz. So I covered them with German glass glitter. Oh my, the bling from that is gorgeous! The cutesie image is Rubbernecker's "Crystal", colored with Prismacolors. The "fur" is Liquid Pearls. Sentiment printed from my computer. Now to separate this from my stash so Chuck doesn't see it, because this will be his Christmas card this year. :)
Bah! Humbug! - Metallics.
Crafty Hazelnut - Silver.
Sunday Sketch & Stamp - Sketch.
ABC Challenge - Q for quote/sentiment.
A little update on the making of the dress for Shelbie (same pic as before, darn it). I have been sewing since before I was 10, consider myself an advanced seamstress. Thankfully I can look at something, sketch it, make the mock-up, and end up with a relative close copy, so Shelbie has always had one-of-a-kind formals. I bought this Vogue Designer, advanced level pattern about 7 or 8 years ago and had never opened the envelope. Apparently for Vogue advanced means HA! We left out some pieces! LOL! Four out of 19 pieces are missing. Nice. So I had to take extra time to figure those pieces out and thus was not able to get the dress finished before Shelbie had to go back to college. I'll be finishing it up this week and will ship it to her. I'll post a picture of the dress all by its lonesome, then Shelbie can have someone take a picture of her the night of the Junior Ring Presentation in April and I'll post it then. What I was able to get finished so I could do a final fitting on her looked beautiful, if I may say so myself. :)
