So, you may have noticed that the Falliday's challenges and tutorials opened on Monday. ( you can find the threads here
) and its a more relaxed deal than any of the others. the challenges load monday, wed, friday with a tutorial on those days also. So, two of the challenges on monday involved watercolor paper and diecuts so, I grabbed a couple of holly & berry sets from Sizzix cut some pieces and started watercoloring them on monday night after work. ( I did finish one tuesday am before work) seen below and the other is still sitting there waiting for how to continue with the leaves for the other. And yep, today a new batch uploaded but, I am not stressing this as yesterday the school officially called it that they cannot hold their fundraiser craft bazaar like usual. ( most places called theirs last spring) but, this school really depends on this and waited until the last minute to say we are not in a good enough place to continue. ( the limit is 100 bodies in a building here and there are more vendors than that) So, on one hand I have been expecting it and not really doing the craft like a crazy chick thing this year but, on the other hand as it got closer I kept stressing about the what if they really hold situation as I do not have the number of tags I would normally make and sell ready. So, I just took a big deep breath again and said this is the first year in a dozen years that the only things I need to make are what I want to give away. and that is a very freeing feeling.
The card below is the one off to the left in the desk shot above. ( its water colored with distress oxide inks) and I will be picking up the Ice for work today and I know I have not been making the rounds. but, I hope you are all doing well and Thanks for stopping by.)
This sentiment is a stand alone one from Unity Stamps. and this card is a funny little 5" x 4 3/4" in real life. I did tuck some glue dots under the edges of the leaves the next morning when it was dry and then ran the whole card through the big shot so smoosh it all together a little better so, nothing pops off it in the mail down the road.
