I used to shy away from shaped cards for a number of reason, but mainly because I didn't have the right shaped envelope to put them in and felt that the square peg into a round hole kind of thing just looked "all wrong" so to speak. Lucky for me though, I did happen to find some square envelopes and pouchettes that I quite liked and that has made my previous excuse making rather moot. Also too, I have gone all quaint on Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities dies and have been really enjoying shaped cards for a change. Now all I need to do is figure out different ways to get these babies to stay still long enough for me to photograph them. Trust me, that's a whole other kettle of fish entirely.
So here's my contribution to the WMSC birthday festivities. I had to laugh, because I guess I am still somewhat delirious with fever as I adhered the purple paisley stamped scallop rather skewiff. But you know what? I decided to leave it as I (also while in the throws of my cold du jour) used tacky glue to stick down the layer instead of my usual ATG gun (why?), then proceeded to sneeze several (but it seemed like several hundred) times in rapid succession, and when it was safe, went back to crafting but it was all over red rover...the glue had already stuck fast! Ack! Nevermind. I decided to just rock it like I meant it. Afterall, it kind of adds to the rustic charm (well if you kind of squint that is) don't you think? You've gotta laugh.
So without further ado, sketch no. 26 and my rapid fire sneeze inspired birthday card:
Thanks so very much for stopping by. You've made my day! Hugs.
