Last night my roommate and I drove out to a local street that is completely decked out with Christmas lights. We love going there every year and walking through it. It's always a zoo, but it so puts me in the Christmas spirit! And when I say decked, I mean to the nines. It's incredible... And it's about a mile long! House, after house, after house.
I needed just a couple more Christmas cards for this year, and since I seem to be cramming things in at the last minute (where, oh where does time go?!), it seemed appropriate to ship these off in the morning mail. :)
I actually really loved the Mojo Monday sketch this week. It "spoke" to me right away. Aka, I knew immediately what I wanted to do, what paper I would use, etc. LOVE it when that happens. And believe it or not, the circle didn't give me any trouble. Weird.
I pulled out my Holiday Button Bits set from PTI, curved the sentiment to fit the circle, colored with my copics, added some liquid applique, some gel pen, and called it a night! It's definitely busier than my normal, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Not bad for a 30 minute card! (and I made several of them) I definitely wowed my roommate with the liquid applique, too. I had to explain to her that it wasn't a marker, that it was a special pen, hehe. We oohed and ahhed at the magical transformation under the heat gun. :)
Well, happy hump day! Only two days left until vacation! And a few hours until Lisa gets her parent gift, hehe.
