Something a Little Different

Monday, January 4, 2010

A happy Monday morning to you all!

I hope you all had a great weekend. It's been snowing almost non-stop since New Years Day here! And there's no sign of it stopping either. I'm very glad to be home on days/weeks like this. We did make it out of the house on Saturday though, despite the weather. We headed for the mall and found a few clothing bargains for Syd. Then she stayed over her grandparents place that night, so The Man and I got a chance to see the movie Avatar. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good science fiction movie! The storyline was pretty transparent and the morals were obvious, but the special effects were incredible!

Today's There She Goes challenge (TSG35) is to make a shape card. Any shape you like except for rectangles, squares and circles! I'm passing on the challenge because I lack all skills (not to mention, equipment) that are required for creating shape cards! So, instead, I thought I'd step outside my comfort zone a little and create this card.

It may not seem all that different to you but for me, adding that big bunch of flowers to the front was a leap outside that box of mine! Not entirely sure if it works but I don't push myself, I get bored quickly! The quote is from the Crafty Taglines set and it's such a beautiful statement, don't you think? I borrowed last week's Sketch For You To Try (since I didn't get a chance to play last week) for the layout and used up some scrap Sassafras Lass paper. I found those calla lilies in the wedding aisle at Michaels. They're made from some sort of clay, so they're rock hard and not very 'mailable'. This card will have to be a hand delivered one.

If you'd like to play along with this week's TSG challenge, just create your shaped card and leave your name and link to it in the Mr Linky at the bottom of the TSG challenge post. The random winner will win a $5 gift certificate to TSG! :)

I have a couple of TOP SECRET projects I'm working on this week, so I won't be posting as much as usual. But I do have a some fun news for you at the end of the week, so stay tuned! ;) Thanks so much for stopping by today! It's always appreciated!

I can so relate about the "shaped" cards but never give up (see this post) http://faithartistry.blogspot.com/2008/03/bloggers-challenge-wk-37-these-boots.html to see what I mean. Hugs
