Hello! Here's a card I made tonight for this weeks 2S4Y challenge. You know, if I keep making Christmas cards till December (I won't!), I will have a pretty good stash to send out. :)
You know..he's a little anecdotal advise for you to ponder the next time you want to show your husband your creations. Make sure, by any means necessary, that he has NOT been eating Lay's. Ugh. So, I made a card last night and loved it. Got it just the way I wanted it, it was CAS and just cutie patootie. I ask him to look at it and as he picks it up he smudges the grease from his chips on the bottom. Thud. I thought I would pass out. he "claims" no one can see it but me..but I know better. I've hemmed and hawed about whether to show it to you guys or not. I think I won't. It's just too much and I cannot do it. :)
So, moving on to my card today. Here is the 2S4Y sketch:
And here is my card:
I don't know about you guys, but I adore square cards. It's hard for me to make one that isn't. Ok, so they require more postage, but they are just so cute to me. I used my Jolly Holiday paper from SU and my nee Verve set, Merry Wishes. I SO love that font. The snowflake is from the Snowflake Serenade set from Papertrey.
That's all I have today..we're gearing up for a mini trip to the mountains this weekend, so I am going to schedule some blog posts and try my hardest to stay offline the whole weekend. It's hubby's last weekend and I can just see it now: We're all in the cabin on our iPhones..lol. Nice. Ava, especially, loves to be on that thing (she gets it honestly, believe me!) so I think if we say beforehand that it's a tech free trip it'll be more fun. Wish me luck on THAT, though. :)
Come back tomorrow for my SFYTT card.
Ok, I changed my mind..here is the Lay's debacle card:
The smudge is below the snowflake. I will admit that it is hard to see here because for some reason Fine Linen card stock will not photograph properly for me so I had to darken and lighten and all of that to get it closer to its' true colors. You know, perhaps I need to take some photography lessons cause I am always blaming the card stock...LOL.
