ALSO - watercolor attempt...not so fab! Water and color... Why is it so difficult!? Sounds so simple! Right?! I even used REAL watercolor paper! Missing ingredient: know-how! Must find tutorials...must get on Google...must search YouTube. Is there an APP for artistic talent? Hmmmm.....
The cut-out card was from a recent "transfer of crap" from sissy Gail. I think she purchased these back in her cross stitch days. I thought she had 'transferred' all her cross stitchery out of her house long ago. These lovelies must have been buried DEEP. Or...she hung on to them thinking "one day I may______". Whatever - they are mine now! A set of die cut cards WITH envelopes! Whooop!!! Sorry it wasn't as awesome as it was in my mind when I first thought of using one of these... If I hadn't struck out three times with this I'd demand a Mulligan. But I think I've used up my Mulligan allotment today.
Since it is actually 'Gailey's' card - this will go in the Omaha pile. Oh yes! I TOO have the 'transfer of crap' gene! I will be traveling to Omaha in two weeks! Crap and card in hand - and SO past ready for a long over due hair cut and visit with the sista' and daughter. It will be my only day off until GRADUATION at The Cliff! Weekends are a thing of the past until May 17! Until then it's all re'sumes, helping with job searches, calming panicking seniors, and the beloved senior slide show.
