another hiatus...

Well, I have taken a little break from the card-making. I just have so many interests that it's hard to be consistent in any of them.

I have some exciting news that I get to share in a few days, but until then...

I took Adelle to a playgroup yesterday where they were making shirts for 4th of July using a stencil technique with freezer paper (it works REALLY well, so if you want details, let me know and I'll share it in another post). I did the painting while I was there, then when I got home I added the buttons! I think this is really cute and it'll be fun to take pictures of her in it tomorrow! :) I kind of freehanded the stripes on the stencil, thus the imperfection of them, but that was kind of the point.

This also works for some challenges!

Day 111 on 365 cards, use stripes and bold colors! I hope squiggly stripes count!
Pile it on Challenge #4: Button it up! (to use at least 4 buttons and of course to combine it with another challenge)
2RedBananas: inspiration from THIS picture (I obviously was inspired by the colors for 4th of July!)

Yes, these are technically card challenge sites, but they seem to enjoy other types of projects too, so there you go :)
