Birthday Wishes and an update.



As promised, I'm back again. I finished these gift card holders this afternoon. These are for two of my nephews. The inside has a diagonal fold across it, which acts as a pocket for a gift card or money. These were super easy to make, so if you are interested in the dimensions and instructions, just let me know. I'll be happy to post them or send them to you via email.
Even though the cards are small, I was able to use a couple of different techniques. For example, on both of them I used paper piercing, with the truck and with the boat. On the sailboat card, I tried the blurred vision watercoloring from yesterday's SCS Wednesday tutorial.
I did this in the waves on the water behind the boat and the cloud in the sky.
Quick and easy, nothing fancy; but I thought they turned out fairly decent.
K.Werner has posted her color inspiration challenge for this week. This week's colors are Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Celery and White. I have plan for that and will hopefully be able to post tomorrow for you.
Ok, that's all for me today...going to clean up the kitchen before GH comes on.
Speaking of GH...I don't know what was more unbelievable yesterday, Lulu killing Logan and then her and Maxie pseudo bonding over the experience. or Carly telling Jason that her and Sonny having sex together did not mean that she had cheated on Jax; but Jax kissing Kate...well now that's cheating?!? I agree with Jason "Are you serious?"
Oh..set the date, looks like Spinelli's gonna get his Maxie fantasy on Tuesday of next week. That's almost as wierd as Trevor and Claudia (ugh?!)Nah, at least Spinelli is a good guy, a little eccentric but decent.
Have a great day, and thanks for visiting with me!
