- Shortly after Christmas I started a batch of four Christmas cards and have been working on them a little at a time between other projects.
- I made a background for a Valentine, but decided it would be pretty for a Christmas card, so it's set aside with parts for the making.
- I printed up four digis to color a gift set for a friend. Made one card, but realized the rest would have to get in line with more pressing card needs.
- I suddenly had the strongest urge to play with layouts and designer papers so I got started on that with some old papers that need to be used up.
All projects are in neat little piles, waiting to be finished, but first -- Valentines!
I only have one sweetie and one child, but Valentines are too fun to make only two. These will go to friends. Valentine parties in grade school were my favorite. All those cute little cards! I think I was destined to be a card maker.
I used a Bugaboo set called Valentine Pup. Copic coloring, a few die cuts, a bit of patterned paper. There are Nuvo glitter drops on the first card. The second card has an embossed paw prints base, smooshed with white ink. Simple, but cute.
When I was making these cards I realized for the first time I could snap the nozzle off my Nuvo drops. I honestly did not know that. Just push the nozzle to the side and it comes right off. I thought my Nuvo drops were doomed as they were all plugged up after only a few uses. Now I take off the nozzle and rinse after each use. So happy! I might need more Nuvo drops now...
I'm glad we could visit today. It's been fun! Now, back to making more Valentines. Enjoy your day!
