So I decided that even though crafting made me irritable yesterday I would get back in the saddle and do it again today. I even told myself that I would post whatever I made, even it looked like a squirrel hooked on crack made it (but if it looked like a poodle on barbituites made it; that was another story....).
|No squirrels or poodles were harmed in the making of this card.|
Actually card making was easy today because I opted to play in this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This week's challenge is called Crafty Bargains and you are to make a PB card showcasing any bargains you may have picked up in the shops during the after the holiday sales. For me, that meant dusting off the stamp I used for the first PB challenge I ever joined. I bought this stamp, the patterned paper, and the cardstock at a local scrapbook store all at 50% off. The sad thing of tale is that it was not an after the holidays, clear the inventory sale. It was a going out of business sale. Yesterday was the store's last day. I am rather distraught over it. I wonder if I can get bereavment leave from work?
The Fine Print: stamp by Penny Black, patterned papers by Jillibean, cardstock by Bazzill, heart brads by Recollections, scallop border punch by Fiskars.
