Sunday Funday With a Couple Cards

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you all have had a nice weekend.

I had a nice walk with my neighbor this morning. I walk with her most weekends and it is so nice to walk and talk with a friend, while getting my exercise. We have a great route that has a bunch of hills so it is not an easy one but gets the heart going!! We got home just in time as it started to pour.

Since the weather has not been pleasant, I had more time in my craft room. Am I the only one that uses it as therapy? It brings me such peace!!

My first card was inspired by a AAA weekend challenge from the Facebook page. It was to make a card using only white. I combined this with this weeks CASE this Sketch #319 and Watercooler Wednesday Challenge "All About Occasions" challenge.

I only used dies on this card, which was kind of fun. I started off by embossing a piece of Neenah white card stock and then die cutting it with SSS Dot Scallop Border die.

I layered this over a white, top folding A2 card front and then added a white sentiment that I die cut using SSS "Sympathy" die.

I then adhered some white botanical die cuts over the right side of the card and covered some of the "flowers" with Diamond Stickles.

I am entering this into the following Challenges:

CASE this Sketch # 319
Watercooler Wednesday-"All About Occasions"

My second card I created about a month ago but didn't post it because it was for this past weeks Administrative Assistant day. I created this for THE BEST admin assistant you could ever want that works in our office. The full time para's decided she needed more than a day and brought her in a little something each day last week to celebrate. I could NEVER do this woman's job. She juggles about 10 things at once throughout the whole day. She is FABULOUS!!

For a fabulous person, I needed a great card.

This card is larger then the usual A2 size that I usually make. It was my intention to have us all sign it BUT I had a difficult time because the admin assistant was always around!!

I made it so long ago that I cannot tell you what supplies I even used. How bad is that? I am too lazy to go and figure it out too.

I can tell you from this photo that I was a bit heavy handed with the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen!! The camera really picked the shine up!!

On another note, are you following The Tiny Chef Show on Instagram? I am not one to follow things like this but stop animation has always been a favorite of mine. The person has the most amazing miniatures that I think they also create. (if you go down their IG feed, there is some amazing tiny stuff!!) You should check it out!! I would post a photo but am always afraid to take one off the internet due to copyright.

Anyway, that is all from me today. Have a wonderful day!!
