Happy Hump day everyone! Oh, and a very happy "National Pecan" day and "National Waffle" day. I don't understand why can't they just settle on one; they must have run outta days ...
Today's card project was created with an acetate transparency I created. If you're interested in taking a look at the entire sheet, clicky HERE. If you purchase any of these transparencies, let me know that you saw it on my blog, and I'll throw in some fun freebies, okeedokee?!?
I ran my transparencies through the Xyron machine then adhered it on top of a page from a vintage (1950), dictionary.
I mounted that on "Blue Bayou" card stock, created a black mat with a vertical orientation, and adhered it to my "Kiwi Kiss" card base. I trimmed 1/2" off the right hand side of the card and attached a scalloped edge punchie.
I stamped my sentiment and finis! So quick to create, it qualifies for the coveted title of "15 Minute Project!"
So Sheila's son, Reid-the-Wild Child, came home yesterday with a big ole' shiner.
"Well, Reid," Sheila said, "I'm terribly ashamed of you! Fighting with your best friend is a terrible thing to do!"
"But he threw a rock at me first! Soooooo, I threw one at him."
Sheila glared at him and said, "When he threw a rock at you, you should have come straight to me."
"What good would that have done?" Reid moaned. "My aim is much better than yours."
