I have a busy week so I'm hurrying like crazy to get cards made for all the challenges I want to enter. It seems like I say this every week. How did I ever get things done when I was working full time? Was I better organized or did my younger brain just work more efficiently?
It was probably the second of the two since I taxed my brain quite a bit to come up with today's card for CAS(E) this Sketch. I love to make tags but wanted something different.
Tags was also the challenge at My Craft Spot so I got a twofer.
The tag is cut from Plantin Schoolbook out of photo paper. I then used Distress Ink in Evergreen Bough, Broken China and Salty Ocean to color it. I even used it on the ribbon since I didn't have any that would work. The strip behind is embossed with the grosgrain ribbon from Die-namics. I saw Ardyth use this and fell in love. It doesn't really show up in this picture but it looks like real ribbon. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Birthday Wishes.
For those of you who were waiting with me, Noah Michael Geis arrived yesterday (Sunday) at 3:16 pm. Mom and baby - and daddy - are doing well. He knew he wanted to be born on the Sabbath and that's what he held out for. Sunday's child is bonny and blithe, and good and gay. Thank goodness for technology. They Face Timed me last night so I could see them all. Next I think there's some Skypeing to do. I'll post a picture soon.
