that's the first bit of news.
the second is this:
it's still kinda crafty, right? i did this to my locks on friday before our gig, then drove all the way out to the venue to meet up with the hubbin and the other two guys who were performing with us that night, only to find out that there was another band added to the lineup, and we wouldn't be playing until about 10:30. unfortunately, i couldn't stay to play with them, but i had fun getting prettied up anyway. :)
the distressing challenge closed on monday at midnight, so yesterday we brought you the new ELEMENTS CHALLENGE, which is to use LOTSA FLOWERS. like, 7 to 10 or more. i loaded 'em up and had a play with a new stamp that my fabulous Holmes/Kristy-Dollie sent me for absolutely no reason other than the fact that she's uber-nifty!
i used some scraps of cardboard, plus some window thingy the hubbin pulled out of an envelope (the grid semi-translucent backing paper)... paint, wire, shimmering mists from Luminarte, etc. and a whack of flowers.
(seriously, how stinkin' GREAT is this stamp?!)
ah, the fun of craft wire! i was looking for something to give this card just a little bit more oomph - do you think this was a good solution?
this challenge will be open until next MONDAY at MIDNIGHT, EST. watch out for those deadlines, folks! :)
here's a little thingy i made last night, because i was DYING to try this technique i read in Scraptastic! - a book my hubbin borrowed for me from the liberry.
right. so i wanna make some stuff. and i DON'T wanna deal with a very annoying UTI, but i hafta. it's a good thing we have no plans tonight, because i'm afraid i'd be pretty useless, what with the "we need to pull over, NOW" thing. so i guess i'm stuck watching movies and/or craftin'!
OH, one other thing... i'm looking to get my hands on a set of Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. i have a set from CTMH that i don't particularly LIKE. anyone looking to trade, or do you know of an SU! demonstrator/consultant who can hook me up? i don't want to just buy through the rep in my area - i'd rather look for someone who's reputable in this here little circle of friends. :)
