I think I am going to try a new feature on Saturdays. I'm going to call it Simple Saturdays and I'm going to focus on really simple cards. I know it's been done before, but I've never done it! Once in a while I might throw in a simple sketch, you just never know.
This week, I found the layout for my card in the Feb 08 CARDS magazine. The designer is a woman named Angie Hagist. I don't know her, but I loved her card and thought I'd give it a try myself. If you know Angie, will you let her know I cased her today? Thanks!
Wow, could you imagine a more simple layout? One partial circle, some ribbon and you've got yourself an amazing card! I took a regular sentiment from CHF (Mona Lisa Moments) and cut it up into three separate pieces. You can do this to just about any sentiment you wanted to use, as long as the words are big enough to see (you certainly wouldn't want to use a sentiment with tiny script or your recipient would have to use a magnifying glass to read it!). The patterned paper I used is from K & C's Berry Sweet Collection. You haven't seen me use this for little while have you?
Last night, we had more severe thunderstorm warnings pass through the area. It was pitch dark again before 9p, it was so creepy. Confirmed tornados touched down in Wilmar, MN, but I haven't heard damage accounts yet. Saw some home videos on the news of the tornado forming and then touching down! (click on the link above and you can watch it....there's a 7 sec. commercial you have to watch first, but then you can see the video in it's entirety). Scarey! I'm sorry, if I was close enough to video a tornado, I am TOO close! I would be outta there people! Who the heck knows how fast that baby is moving and might be in your face in the next second???? No thanks. It's the basement for me. What do those of you with no basement do in severe weather? I know Texas has lots of tornados....do you guys have basements like we in the upper midwest do? I know many, many, many states do NOT have basements.... I think they are mostly a midwestern thing (thank God). I was just curious to know how the rest of you stay safe in bad weather. Drop me a comment share with me!
It's time for me to start packing my bag for today's SCS Summer Fest activites! I've got my nametag all designed and ready to go for the name tag contest! I've got my swap cards all ready to go, and my gift exchange present ready to go. I think I'm set! Can't forget my camera so I can share the day's festivities with all of you tomorrow.
Have a great day, and please, stay safe!
