Finally I got to play in my planet!
But before that, let me just share with you a little story.
My Mommy is here visiting, and she has been doing a lot of cleaning for us (thank you much, Mommy!). She likes to hang in my planet - using the computer and what not. A couple of days ago, she was grazing through my craft desk, pointed at my Big Shot and asked how it worked. So I showed her the basics. I embossed some cardstock with my A2 folders... and she said "wow!" upon seeing the outcome. I even let her emboss herself. She thought it was pretty cool. After that, I showed her how to cut with Spellbinders dies, and layered the cut pieces. She was amazed. End of story. I just had to share because I found her reactions quite amusing.
Anyway, I have been way behind on my card making and have even skipped giving cards to some important people during their special days. I still feel bad, because I have mentioned countless times since I started blogging about making cards for all family, relatives and friends throughout the year as a New Year's resolution. And every year, I fail. And I did again this year.
So DH's niece and goddaugther, who is dear to us, had her birthday last week. And of course, I wasn't able to make a card for her. But I made sure I made one to extend her celebration in some way.
The image was colored with Copics, and the embossed background was sprayed with Tattered Angels and Smooch Spritz.
