Happy Sunday! Just a quick post today to share a couple of cards I made for the World Card Making Day Challenges on Splitcoast. First up is a card I made for the My Favorite Things Challenge, which is to use the signature MFT colors (pink, black, white) plus add some bling. The image, Think Pink, is one of the images that MFT recently released in digital format. I printed on Neenah white card stock and colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. I've got some clear crystals on the corners of the image and some black ones adorning the corners of the patterned paper panels. The sentiment is from Twisted Too.
Next up is a card for Verve's challenge, which was to choose a country's flag and use it as inspiration. I chose Botswana, with its blue, black and white flag:
The sentiment is from Wishing You, a set that includes all sorts of endings to cover a multitude of occasions. I stamped "a very HAPPY birthday" on the inside.
Before I go, here's a funny (scary?) story ... I've recently become quite addicted to Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook - a HUGE time suck, I MUST stop. Clearly, I'm not very good at it, because I can't for the life of me figure out how these people are getting scores in the upper 100Ks, when my average is probably not even 25K! Don't tell me any secrets, please. I can't afford to waste any more time on FB! So, here's how you know you've been playing too much Bejeweled Blitz. At church this morning, I was looking across the sea of heads in the congregation thinking, "If I move that black-haired person up a row, he'll be beside two other black-haired people. Poof! Points for me!" Later, while driving, I watched a silver car merge into a lane in front of two other silver cars. Ha! Three in a row!! Yea. Too much Bejeweled Blitz, I'm thinkin'.
Thanks for visiting!
