The aftermath of a 4 day weekend

Isn't always pretty.  It was better this time around.  I feel like I accomplished something.

I got an card order for a coworker finished.  She was thrilled to have them, which makes me happy.

Note to self (because you don't really need to know what's on my To-do list): Order more A2+ clear envelopes.

I also bought the latest issue of Paper Crafts this weekend and found a really neat card on the last page: clear base card with multi-color polka dots on it.  LOVED it and had to CASE it. Twice.
 
Paper: Clear, white, Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Harvest Gold, New Leaf, Elegant Evening, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist, Sweet Blush. Stamps: MFT: Essential Sayings Ink: Palette Noir.  Accessories: Nestabilities Classic Circles, dimensionals, Diamond Glaze.

The next card is the TLC Challenge on SCS for Monday - Acrylic Distress background.  I've learned a few things with this: 1) use a bigger die to cut out the piece, 2) the music embossing folder by Tim Holtz is too intricate to do this properly.  Other than these 2 things, I think I'd do this technique on a card again.

Paper: white (colored piece is PTI select white).  Ink: Distress Tea Dye, Memento Tuxedo Black. Stamps: Stamping Bella - Musicabella, MFT - Essential Sayings.  Accessories: ribbon, Copics, Tim Holtz embossing folder, Nestabilities, Adirondack acrylic paint.

That's all there is, really.

 Hope my scrapping thing on Saturday goes well and I get a bunch of pages done.
