I have a confession to make. This week I took the easy route. When I saw this week's colors for the Curtain Call I was excited because these are pretty colors that I would never put together myself.
Well, the week got away from me and next thing I know, it's Saturday and I haven't made my card. We had made plans for a fire with my parents that evening, so time was tight. Additionally, I needed a card to give to my dad, to celebrate his retirement. The result? This week's card.
I let the designer papers and the decorative stitching do the bulk of the work. I used my stars die for the second time in a month! I've come to the conclusion I need some stars stamps...I like using stars and other than the die, I have none!
I wasn't going to mention it, but you see I used Real Red, instead of Rose Red? Chalk that one up to bad eyesight! I just totally misread it! I just discovered my faux pas this morning! Oooops!
I also want to mention, I will be posting lots of cards this week! It's no secret I have been starved for stamping time. I am missing that stamping time terribly! I need some fun! For years I have kept a card folder on my computer consisting of great looking cards from other bloggers. I recently looked at that folder and there were 140 files in it! So, about two weeks ago I started casing those cards. I am having a blast making them! I'm going to share these cards with you....giving all the credit back to the original artist (I keep pretty good track of these things!) Once I get started I hope you'll leave me some feedback. I was a little leery of starting this series...to CASE on such a grand scale. Then, I thought of my stamping friends that, like me, simply haven't had the time to stamp...these cards have been so fun, easy and stress-free to make!
