Boy, it's been busy the last couple of days. Good busy, but busy. So busy that I've been plumb worn out at the end of the day. Who knew retirement could be so exhausting?! LOL
Fortunately, I found a little time to play with paper this afternoon. My original plan was to make a playful thank you card to send in my next box of SAS4Kids cards for Nationwide Children's. But, the end result was a card that I think would be perfect for a PPL librarian who is retiring this week after 31 years of service to the Pickerington community.
Nothing fancy in terms of new techniques or sophisticated design. Just a little inking and masking to create a heartfelt thanks for a special librarian who is really going to be missed by PPL patrons.
I'm going to share this card over at the Shopping Our Stash Stand Up and Be Counted Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp It's Hip to be Square Challenge. (It's a big day for me at SSS. I'm actually using products from the featured company -- in this case, SSS -- on my card. Woot, Woot for me!
Meeting with my Stamp Club gal pals tonight. We are going to practice ink blending. I've packed up my back with lots of Distress Inks, Ranger blending tools and sponges, and scrap papers to share the joy of Distress Inking with my friends.
Really think I need to get to a little housework tomorrow. Maybe the cleaning gods will reward me by providing some clarity about a pumpkin idea that's trying to work its way out of my and onto a card. :)
Our Words 2 Craft By A Single Step Challenge is still going on. It runs until the first Wednesday in September. So, there's still plenty of time to link up a card/project -- and maybe win one of those MFT gift certificates.
