I had one of *those* days yesterday...sunny, blue sky, reasonably warm temperatures...a perfect day to spend outdoors. But not for me; call me a wimp (yes, I wear that title well), but the wind was gusting and the fluffy air-borne things were everywhere! I don't have seasonal allergies - as far as I know - however, of late, the dry air, the wind and the fluffers are a combination that set me to sniffles. Best prescription: I opened the patio doors for some fresh air, and crafted away. I'm really not that outdoorsy, given a choice *grin* Of course, the lure of the sun and wind appealed to my husband's enthusiasm for heading out for a long - and I mean long - 182 km (113.2 mile) bike ride - which I had no hope in heck of tagging along with anyway. Win-win all around, although in the realm of exercise, well - epic fail for me!
The results though - a few cards, a few dabbles at stenciling and water-colouring (yeesh, practice needed), house-cleaning, laundry, a chat with the little ones (highlight!!)...a Saturday spent well.
This post, I have two type writer themed cards to share, because I finally got the matching die that accompanies my typewriter stamp. Yayyy! The first is heading to Seize the Sketch #22, with the sweet layout by Lori T:
Fortunately, I remembered the typewriter paper from my Valentine collection. SCORE!
NOTE: Honoured and delighted that Vicki selected my card as her choice for a Seize the Sketch Runner Up. THANK YOU!!
My second card is a little number to celebrate the *100 Challenges* milestones at two fabulous sites:
CASology #100, where the cue word is 'Celebrate',
and Addicted to Stamps and More #100, where Birthday #2 is also figures into the festivities. A pretty rainbow photo is part of the inspiration invitation:
Despite my efforts, my water-colouring and stenciling did not achieve the results I was hoping (epic disasters round 2...), so I opted for the 'default mode' that works best for me: die cuts and stamping!
Some rainbow coloured paper, another typewrite, and I even found a 'celebrate' stamp in my stash..
It's another sunny-ish, warm-ish day, and my husband is working on *my* bike...I think that's a hint...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!!
