Curtain Call {Act 52}

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Well, our weekend didn't turn out to be quite as relaxing as I had hoped, and I didn't get a chance to try out that new, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe, but I did sneak in a little time to play in my loft.  We, also, got the yard mowed; taught Sunday school, this morning; did a little, birthday shopping for my baby girl; took a trip to the pet store, which happens to be just about my family's favorite place to play; and discovered just how many pictures my camera's SD card can hold, which, if you're interested, happens to be 1,049, and uploaded them all to Walgreens, just in time to take advantage of their nine cent, 4x6 prints and free shipping promo.  Yippeee!

Today, has been a little frustrating, between Adina experimenting with just how much soap, from the bathroom sink dispenser, her little hands would hold and my having to change her clothes and clean the bathroom, three times, due to her discovery.  Plus, she's been a little irritable.  I think she might be getting those two-year-molars, but after the boys left for Awana, we took a long, relaxing walk; got a bath; and watched Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, before bed.  So, we're ending the weekend on a positive note.
I started this card by layering a piece of orange, star, patterned paper on a square, Tangerine Tango, cardstock insert; adhering a strip of hand cut, across the top, to resemble waves, Taken With Teal cardstock, near its bottom edge and hanging over its right and left sides, to line up with the card face itself; and machine stitching it to the clear, cardstock, card face with white-threaded, straight stitches.  I, then, stamped a couple, more waves, in Moonlight White ink; wrapped a length of Baker's Twine, three times, around the bottom half of the card face...
tied it off with a bow, thread through an orange button; and embellished it with a stamped, in Bermuda Bay ink, on white cardstock, "Get well soon!" sentiment, which was framed with Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered with dimensionals.
The finishing touch was the little sailboat...
which was stamped, in Jet Black ink, on white cardstock; colored with Bermuda Bay, Dusty Durango, and Chocolate Chip inks; hand cut out; and adhered, with dimensionals, over the top wave.
Last week, when we went to the KC Zoo, one of the little ones, who went with us, fell, just before we left, and ended up needing three staples in the back of his head.  Poor baby!  This card was for him, and my inspiration came from Curtain Call's Color Challenge {Act 52}.
Get well soon, Todd!  Have a wonderful close to your weekend and a fantastic start to your work week, everyone!
