It feels so wonderful when I have an hour or two to rub together like nickels in my pocket, so I can spend time creating in my Craft Loft. Tonight, I stole those hours -- somewhere after dinner, after watching some TV with Mr. Smiley, and before bed. Dishes? Ha! Something has to give!
Tonight I created this card with one of my favorite sayings. How often do we follow these instructions, to dance ... sing... live?
To make this card, I typeset the phrase using Adobe Illustrator and free fonts found online. I printed it out using simple black ink on white cardstock. Once trimmed, I inked the edges with my new Anna Griffin ink pads -- what a deal I got on those, 12 for $30 or so including shipping. They are in the most luscious colors! (See photo)
Next, I matted a brown liner on a premade white card, then added an additional two-tone liner for underneath the saying. I tied a bow from this handsome voile ribbon, wrapping it around the 2nd liner. Decorated with Jolee's stickers and voila!
Take time to enjoy these warm, Indian summer days. Dance, sing, live!
