WSC37 Gardening Pleasures
I made this card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I'm a couple of weeks behind, but I'm on the "better late than never" plan for life.
I used Stampin Up's Gardening Pleasures stamps. It is an old set, copyright 2001. I doubt it is still in the catalog and it is not my typical style, but it seemed to work perfectly with this sketch. I cut out birdhouse (straw hat) and used pop dots to give it a little depth.
No matter how I tried I just could not get a good image of this card. Must be my eyes, they are so tired from reading. Law school is filled with hours upon hours of reading. Don't get me wrong, I love to read, but after reading legal writing for hours on end, even reading notes from my girls' school can be challenging.
Last summer, I was at Barnes and Noble looking for a good summer read. I was picking up book after book, looking at the back for the summary. I realized after my 5th or 6th inspection that I was merely "looking" at the summary, not "reading" it! I decided not to buy a book at all; I left with a couple of magazines instead.
Tomorrow I will upload a card I made for my friend AJ. It so cute!
