Slower than mollases

Slower than mollasses. That's how making this card was. I initially was making it for Dawn's
color challenge. I started like 3 days ago and nothing was working for me. I'd put it down and go do something else. Make another card. At any rate, I finally finished it - only a couple days past the submission deadline. LOL. Oh well. I have to stop expecting every card to sing and just make one sometimes. They aren't all going to sing. Lots of non-singing cards are nice. I've never opened a card and thought, "It doesn't sing." So don't be too hard on yourself, okay? And you can always send the ugly cards you make to your super nice friends. That's what I do. You know who you are. Or do you?

Damask Birthday

Just a little card I made for a friend. She's a fellow pink lover. I had to use flocking on the Damask Designs set again. I couldn't resist. It's fairly simple, but I like it. To get the flock to stick to the detailed images I use craft ink, heat and stick powder, and then flocking. It's kind of a pain, but I love these furry little images.
Now I'm off to stalk my UPS man. I should have a package coming soon with Stampin' Up! preorder goodies and the new catalog. Not soon enough, but I will survive. And in the meantime, I'll take 80 facebook quizzes, run 30 miles, and clean every surface of my house - not all at once though. Now I'm just rambling. Just go look at the picture again. Have a hoot!
