First for my card and then you can decide if you want to read on :) I have to be honest and say that I love my craft space down in the basement. And the word basement is misleading because it makes it sound like its a basement (lol), but its all refinished and is a wonderful family space. Anyway, I generally don't do crops and I really don't enjoy taking things elsewhere. I have a horrible time deciding what to take and what to make and when I get there, I'm missing the one most important item that I really want. For our trip, I did bring some stuff and luckily my Mom brought some stuff as well. I kept it all in 2 12x12 bags though, so it was very minimal. I actually brought a lot of stamped images that I wanted to color, so my Copics actually took up the majority of space in one of my bags. So take that into consideration when looking at my card.
This is for Lauren's Saturday sketch and guess what, no circle punch so I used a glass to outline my circle and then hand cut it out. For the mat I cut free hand and then roughed up my edges so the crookedness wouldn't be noticed as much. The designer paper is the Basic Grey Sugared Paper Pad from Limelight Papercrafts (don't sigh too much - I know, more of that paper) and the stamp is Pink Cat Studio and finally, the sentiment is CTMH. I would have loved to "bling" up my image, but I had to settle for bling elsewhere.
My other musing is that I am sad that the Olympics are over. I really enjoyed staying up way too late to watch all the events. The next one to look forward to are the Winter Olympics in 2010 and guess what, they are in Vancouver. All you Canadians have got to be stoked about that. Our plan is to try and get up to Whistler again for it - I believe that most of the outdoor events will be around here. We shall see...
And finally, don't forget that Mandy is having 10% of on everything over at Limelight. I love the fact that she always has a little something going on over there. Plus, she has new Stampendous and Unity Stamps too! Go check out the goods! :)
