Hope the weekend is going well. It's a rainy day here -- a perfect day for a little cardmaking followed by curling up with a good book. :)
This week's Any Hero card was inspired by OWH Sketch #170.
|We R Memory Keepers Red, White & Blue; cardstock: blue, white, AC; red, Bazzill watermelon; dark blue, ???|
star brads: Recollections; star punches: Fiskars, The Paper Studio; hole punch: EK
technique: fussy cutting of herringbone from 6 by 6 sheet
I really like the pairing of the bold pattern with the smaller star pattern, the repitition of stars, and the aqua blue used for the base and the background of the center rectangle.
I struggled with the small, horizontal strip on the sketch, not wanting to introduce a third pattern and not having quite the right ribbon. So, I opted for leaving the strip off the card. I also slightly adjusted the placement of the three brads. Other than that, I felt like it was pretty close to the sketch -- definitely in keeping with the spirit of it.
A Question from Hubby
Hubby wants to know if my fellow cardmakers show EVERY SINGLE CARD to their hubbies. In addition, do my fellow cardmakers show EVERY SINGLE CHANGE to EVERY SINGLE CARD to their hubbies? (His words exactly, down to the caps!)
He is soooo funny -- and apparently a little exasperated that he's been asked to look at cards on several different occasions this weekend for a combined total of about 5 minutes. Although, I've been informed that this weekend was an atypically slow weekend; I only made one card last night since I watched a 3 1/2-hour movie on TCM sans multi-tasking. (Sadly, there's not a cable hook-up in the menopause room.)
The funniest part of all of this to me is that he really seems to think it matters -- or that his feigned protestations will put an end to his "suffering". LOL! :)
I've got one or two mini chores to finish before curling up with that book.
As always, thanks for stopping. Have a good week, and happy scrappin'!
