How’s your weekend going? Mine’s been pretty good so far – we attended a beautiful wedding for the daughter of one of my high school girlfriends last night, and today my daughter and grandson and I wandered around a French Flea Market in downtown Kirkland – it’s sunny and gorgeous out!!
I’m back today to share a couple of things. First, I spent the better part of last week creating for a couple of publication calls, and found out on Friday that not a one of my projects was picked up! Wahhhhhh! LOL The one positive thing that came out of it though is that I have several projects to share with you here.
This project was created for the January/February 2012 Paper Crafts Magazine call – to create an interactive Valentine’s Day card. I immediately thought of this fun A Muse Studio set called Love Conquers All. The road was created using another set called Mad for Plaid. I created a spinner card – that cute red car is attached to two pennies with a dimensional square sandwiched in between them, and then slid into the slot/road.
Here’s what it looks like when you tilt the card sideways. That funny little car twirls around from end to end as you tilt it. Cute, right?!!
STAMPS: A MUSE STUDIO (Love Conquers All, Mad for Plaids), MY STAMP BOX (Neighborhoods)
PAPER: A MUSE STUDIO (Sky and Grass Gingham CS), NEENAH CLASSIC CREST (Ultra Smooth Solar White CS)
INK: TSUKINEKO (Onyx Black VersaFine Dye Ink and VersaMark Water Mark Ink)
ACCESSORIES: ZING/AMERICAN CRAFTS (Rouge Embossing Powder), STAMPIN' UP! (Word Window Punch and Stampin' Dimensionals), LIL INKER DESIGNS (Clouds Die), PROVO CRAFT (Cuttlebug Die Cut and Embossing Machine and Swiss Dots Embossing Folder), Pennies
I have to admit, I was really bummed when I didn’t get that coveted email telling me that my project had been picked up. I walked around the house all day Friday like a pouty baby, throwing myself a little pity party.
That is UNTIL my mailman rang my doorbell and there he stood with a cute little box in his hands. When he handed it to me, I immediately ran inside my house and opened that baby up. Much to my surprise and elation, my sweet, sweet friend, Terri had sent me some of her amazing sugar cookies – and look at how freaking CUTE they are!! Are you KIDDING ME?!! Starbucks coffee cups?!!! OH EM GEE!! Terri knows how much I love me some Starbucks coffee (Vente Raspberry Mocha, please! LOL) How sweet is she?!! Seriously, she made my day with her thoughtful gift – and it made all the difference in soothing my wounded pride. Cookies take all the pain away! LOL And see that cute coffee cup? That was another gift from Terri – on HER birthday! LOL How lucky am I to have such a thoughtful friend?! You’re the BEST, dude!!
Now, if you think these cookies are amazing, you SO need to head on over to Terri’s blog – she’s giving away another set of her world famous sugar cookies (and I can tell you first hand that they are THE most delicious cookies you’ll EVER eat – no joke!). You don’t have to do much to enter to win – she’s nice like that. But it’s well worth the trip over there. So stop what you’re doing right now and get over there – and tell her I sent you, okay?!!
Okay, peeps, that’s it for me today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I’ll be back on Monday with another rejected project – I have six total! LOL Thanks so much for stopping by today. Your sweet comments make my day!
