Card Making


I wasn’t in the mood to scrapbook today. I need more pictures printed for the month of November and that requires me to log onto and pick pictures. I’m in denial that I need them. I don’t understand how I printed over fifteen pictures of my youngest and yet only one of my oldest. So I am avoiding pages.
I did make a set of four cards using Inkadinkado stamps. They are square inch stamps and were used in Archiver’s August Make and Take. They are adorable stamps. I don’t know if I like how they turned out but oh well. I used the Pink Pirouette ink pad from Stampin’ Up! It was one of their in colors from 2008-2009. I don’t think I like the color, which is a shock because I usually love their colors. It’s just such a light pink, and barely shows up on white, and don’t even think about any other color. I used my pomegranate ink and more importantly, the holy grail of ribbon for me: double stitched ribbon from Stampin’ Up!’s in color for 2007-2008. I finally have some in every color, which came to me last Friday. I used the Purely Pomegranate ribbon, a light green ink and a suede color ink. I finished them off with some quick rubons from American Crafts and a few rhinestones.
And I pulled out a book called, creating character emotions by Ann Hood. I read the first two chapters and worked on a writing exercise. I wrote two pages on Microsoft Word, which would have been like four pages had I handwritten it. It felt good to do the exercise because it helped me to write from someone’s perspective that I never would have even known.
I am going to continue reading through the book, and hope that through the writing exercises, I’ll be able to find my characters and start writing excerpts from their point of view.
