Holy Moly, is it really great to be home. For those of you, who don't live here in central New Mexico, we had a bit of snow fall on the city. That isn't the tragedy. Well, the storm really hit the northern border of Texas and Oklahoma. So, they closed I-40 East. They closed the freeway Sunday evening, and didn't re-open it till Tuesday. I take the freeway to get home from work. And I was on-call at the hospital Sunday night. And the snow plows didn't start on I-40 East in our area till after 3a Monday. But then again, they don't really know how to plow anyways. They are better at dumping red dirt on top of the snow. Blah, blah, blah . . . I could go on, but I'm sure that you didn't stop here to hear about my crying.
The wonderful ladies over @ Nacho Average Challenge have a very creative sketch for you to try this week. I'm sure you will have fun with this sketch!
Before you pass us by. Don't let the large pennant discourage you. I added a torn edge, a doily, and a slightly off-center tag. Here is what I did!
I did alot of masking on the tag. I stamped two postage stamps and two flowers. I inked my text wheel and ran it across the lower third of the tag. I stamped the flowers again and fussy cut them out and used foam tape to pop them off the tag. I stamped a sentiment banner and machine stitched it to the tag. I used a 'water mark' stamp to help age the tag.
I tore a measuring tape DSP to resemble some what of a triangle shape. I also added a paper doily. I ran a strip of crochet trim and vanilla seam binding down the middle of the card. I machine that too. I tied a multi-loop bow with the seam binding and added a fabric blossom to the center of the bow.
I hope you get a chance to play along with us @ NAC.
I am participating in the Natural History Museum Chocolate Fantasy, again this year. I'll post photos of my chocolate sculpture on Sunday, as the judging is on Saturday. Wish me luck!
