365 Cards - Digging Deep
♥♥♥ ♥♥♥ ♥♥♥
A rainy day here in Oregon, very very unusual for August, and very refreshing !
365 Cards has my good friend Kristina as a guest designer today, and wow, she really came up with the most amazingly beautiful card I have seen in a very long time. Check it out !!!
The theme today is using things that are old. The requirements are :
An item (not paper) that is at least 6 months old
2 sheets of patterned paper that you've never used
An embellishment that you've had for more than a year
A stamp that you've never used but you've had for at least a year
Now, this is kinda hard for those of us who are so new to this - I never owned a stamp a year ago ! (Unless we count postage stamps, and I do have a small supply of 39 cent ones left...) However, the ribbon is ancient, the papers I have never used before, and the flowers have been around for quite a while. And, I never have used these two stamps before ... So, I am forced to my rebellious side only out of necessity !
Don't think I have ever sent a fall card (or even a Halloween one) in my life, but gosh, the colors are just amazing. There is a lot of glittery crapola on there, since I think of bright sunshine on fall leaves, (we do have one or two days a year like that here), and, well, it was a chance to do something I have never done before. Who doesn't like that !!
In the "spirit" of the fall and Halloween days to come, I have added a pic of my Spencer, he is watching a scary Scooby-Doo with his hands over his ears. Notice his little Dennis the Menace cowlick - not for nothin' that little cowlick, nope.
