Fan Mail

DSCF0423

Happy Thursday!  I spent a little time in my craft room today while trying to encourage my extremely sleepy, crabby DGD that she really DID need to take a nap!  Finally, we have success!  Anyway, I really wish I could say I loved this card, but it’s not one of my favs…..but it will be good for a guy card—they really aren’t picky, are they??  It fulfills several challenges:

  • WT317 at SCS:  Decorative scissors; I used an older pair of SU scallop scissors—I’ve held on to them all these years!
  • PPA87:  A color challenge of Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz:

PPA87

  • CCMC145:  A sketch challenge, which I turned on its side:

CCMC145

So here’s my card:

DSCF0423-1

I used an image from Puns from the Past…..as far as spring cleaning, I always remember getting the fans out from the attic and having to dust all those slats….ick.  But if you didn’t, you’d be showered with a blast of dirt & grime the first time you turned it on!!  I am thinking I should have made a card with the brighter Daffodil Delight so that it wouldn’t have been so dreary---that’s about how it feels outside today.  I am SO ready for some sunshiny weather!!!  Anyway, thanks for visiting!

I think there's truth in what you said about guy cards, lol! SOME guys, anyway. Ok, I shouldn't bash. I love that simple layout - great card! (dusting, sigh)

Very cute card, LeAnne! I love how you double-stamped the fan. (And if Cassidy is being a grumpus, just bring her to me!)

That is a cute card. I just bought that set from someone selling it on her blog. I thought it was a cute set and would be good for quick cards. Thanks for the inspiration Cassidy is getting into her exercises early!

I like how you stamped the fan very subtly along the DP's bottom edge...and the rows of scallops above your focal point. And, oh my, that baby is getting so big!

FANTABULOUS! I love the colours (great challenge) and that you turned the sketch on its side is perfect. That shadow stamping - gosh I keep forgetting how much I love that. Great job on the CCMC challenge his week.
