This is my second post for today, as I'm waiting for wash to dry before heading to my Mom's for our weekly 4 o'clock Sunday tea.
Today's my son's birthday. I called him at exactly 12:12pm (the time he was born) to wish him a happy birthday. I've been doing that since he went away to college, almost 20 years ago. I didn't realize how much he enjoyed getting that call until one year I forgot. I won't do that again!!!
It's funny the things that you don't realize.
You don't realize how often you don't center things on a card, until you try to make a card centering everything. That's the challenge this week at Meljen's Design Team Challenge #192 - Bullseye.
I've used a freebie digital image from Meljen's because this guy is just too adorable. Brown and red is a favorite combination of mine so I've used some of the kraft text paper I bought by mistake (I thought it was CS.) and layered it with some red glitter paper. I used a Darice EF on the background but chose to use the debossed side for a different look. The ribbon is one of my favorites and is almost gone, so I just used one inch pieces to conserve. (I also cut rectangles out of the center of the red glitter paper to use later. Why just cover up useable materials, especially when they are a little pricey or in short supply?)
Besides Meljen's Challenge, I am entering this in:
Robyn's Fetish Challenge #194 - No pattern paper
Allsorts Challenge Week #241 - Ribbons (no bows)
Stamping with the Dragon Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Little Fairies Challenge - Kraft
My Heart Pieces Challenge - Anything Goes
The dryer just buzzed! I'll be back tomorrow with a Mojo Monday card.
