|The colors are StampinUp markers applied directly to the stamps,|
spritzed with water, and then stamped..
I couldn't quite get the hang of looping the twine behind the mat, so old-school bows wrapped around the mat sufficed. I left the tails of the bows extra long, though, and really like the look. Mia's originals look much more delicate than mine, but the bold fall colors warm my heart on these cold winter days.
And these cards are extra-popped with dimensionals between the white and kraft mats and under the leaves, so they will not be mailed...or will be mailed in packages.
Today was the first day of class, and a great day it was! Last week, after having two of my three classes canceled, I was resigned to an easy semester. Then, Friday afternoon at three o'clock, my department chair called and offered me another class. What a relief that will be this fall when we have to pay tuition to University of Cincinnati for the start of Nick's junior year.
Sinclair tuition is being moved to UC in a very expensive shell game, but I don't want to think about that too much. Oy!
Tomorrow I shall stamp, which makes me very, very happy!
What are you doing this week that makes you very, very happy? Inquiring minds....
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
