A Lemonade Card

So Sweet_Apr 2010

Confused by my title? Let me explain. When I sat down in my corner last night, my screw up from the night before – the image I had run through my Xyron upside down – was laying there. And so, what do you do with the pretty image that is covered with adhesive? You pour glitter on it and hope for the best – kinda like the saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

All things considered, I’m pretty darned happy with my card, which is also my rendition of Mojo Monday 133. I will have to say, too, that Martha’s Stewart’s Crystal Fine glitter is my sparkle of choice. It is perfectly clear unlike some of the other fine glitters that always look to me like they have green and sometimes red in them.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Juniper, and Cocoa cardstock; Creative Basics Veranda Collection; Cocoa, Juniper, Garden Green, and Bamboo ink pads; Close To My Heart So Sweet stamp set; Antiqued Copper mini brads; Spring Blossom Just Blooms paper flowers; Hero Arts pearl accents; Martha Stewart Crystal Fine glitter; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Ovals set; Sponge dauber; Xyron; 3M foam mounting tape.

Whoa! It’s Friday already tomorrow. It’s been a fast week albeit a couple of really slow days at work that I haven’t particularly enjoyed. Too busy beats nothin’ to do hands down. Such is not the case at home, however, where the “to do” list is so long I don’t know where to start. LOL. From the sounds of things, I will have the weekend to myself to chip away on my list, as Husband is going to the hunting cabin for a work weekend. The prospect of having some alone time sounds good to me.

I hope your day was a good one. Until tomorrow, take care!
