I'm busy working on my card, layout is next!

Mary-I'm on the list twice under layouts. The #6 spot is correct for me, the #21 I think is Peg's inspiration.

Happy Sunday!



Rats...I thought I had fixed that in all the places...see Kim you are just so good I had to give you two spots.

All fixed.

happy Sunday middle of a long weekend (for some of us lucky people).




Thanks for the vote of confidence, Mary, but I'm having a hard enough time coming up with ONE layout - forget about TWO!

My card, however, is done!! I just have to get it uploaded.

JCI...

Any suggestions on making cards?? I havent made any yet....What size do you normally measure your cardstock out??



I think cards can be any size you want them to be, from those teeny tiny cards you insert into a bunch of flowers all the way up to those jumbo cards that are as tall as a small child.

They can be any shape, too (think square, rectangle, circle, oval, triangle, hexagon).

Focus on the design/message/embellies/ etc and work the size around that.

Think of it as a layout if that helps. Just have fun with it

I make my cards to fit the envelopes I have.

If you're making them to mail, check your postal restrictions, for example if square cards cost more to mail, or over a certain size or weight.

In the UK I can mail an A6 card to the US for 60p less if it is under 20g in weight. If I'm mailing within the UK, cards have to be thinner than 5mm to use a standard stamp. Talk about curbing the creativity...

Oh, and I'm ACU.

The card chosen for me:

Give Thanks Darker Side Challenge By AuntJo

And my lift:



This one was hard for me, I'm not quite sure why. I don't feel like I did the original justice at all. Still had lots of fun doing it!

If I don't already have the package of precut cards with envelopes (4 x 5 1/2), I will cut mine.

I have the invitation sized envelopes, so I cut my cardstock 9 x 6 1/4. Then I fold my paper in half and my card is 4 1/2 x 6 1/4. Sometimes I want a longer card, so I will cut it to match my envelop. I just recently made a square card (5 1/2 x 5 1/2) and I made my own very simple envelop.

I just noticed that the card that Stiina picked for me is the same as the card that Dollscrap picked for Stiina. Is that right? Or am I going mad? Does it matter?

I thought there was a mistake, but when I read the response from the person selecting my inspiration, I realized it wasn't. We have the same card as our inspiration. At least your LO is unique since I'm not making a LO. It will be fun to see how we both interpret the same card. Enjoy!

I didn't notice until I saw your lift and thought that's a LOT like mine...

Well that's OK then! It will be fun. I hope to work on mine this weekend if I get the chance. I'll make it a different colour from yours LOL

After looking at my card for a couple of days, I decided it needed just one more thing. I'll get that done and get it uploaded so I can start on my layout.

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Hey ladies. Sorry to be MIA - I have had a pretty crazy busy week.

Will try to catch up tonight and get the front updated.

Rosey - no problem with you and Stiina having the same inspiration unless you want a different one.
