I think I had a case of ADD Saturday. It all started when I couldn't find the sentiment I used on the first card I made for Make It Monday. Dawn had a video on debossing stamped images and I did a card almost like hers. I wasn't satisfied with it (the debossing didn't match the image very well ) and decided to do another one. But where did the darn sentiment stamp set go? I looked through everything and couldn't find it. I had just gotten some more DVD holders and knew I put the new stamp set in one but it wasn't on my rack. I also recently bought a label maker to put labels on my DVDs and decided to go ahead and do the labels and maybe the set would show up. I got most of them done (I want to redo the ones I glued paper labels on) and no set turned up.
I also got a few new Distress Inks and while I was labeling them I decided to do Ink Swatches. I started stamping with the new colors but needed labels for the swatch cards so I printed them up on the computer. I think I got 5 or 6 swatches done when I had to break for supper.
I keep all my embossing folders, Cuttlebug plates and rubber mats in a big metal tin. I got into it to get the stuff to deboss my image and guess what I found? Yep, there it was - the missing stamp set. It must have gotten swept off the desk with the plates when I made the initial card. I wish after all of this the card was a little more exciting.
I used my NBUS butterfly stamp and die from PTI's Life is Beautiful in HA Soft Cantaloupe. The sentiment from Stampendous is stamped in Soft Granite.
Now let's see. Shall I check the challenges and make a couple of cards? or should I finish my Ink Swatches? I guess I'll check the challenges first and see if any light bulbs go off. I can do the swatches some time when I'm watching TV.
Thanks for stopping by and listening to my tale. I know we all have days like this but I hope yours are few and far between.
