(giant epoxy letters: from somewhere ??? far back in the olden days of papercrafting, lol!; patterned paper: crate, amy tangerine, sei; tapes: crafty basics + heidi swapp (remember how she did decorative tape like TEN YEARS AGO and nobody seemed to care? and now suddenly washi + deco tapes are EVERYWHERE, i think we all owe heidi an apology and our thanks, don't you?!!); twine: doodlebug; ink; colorbox; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, plus a little scotch tape holding the twine in place on the back!)
this is the last of the cards made when my power was still out, though, thankfully, i was able to photograph it in the let-there-be-light-again box, making life ever so much easier! and yeah, the letters are ANCIENT, but i still think they are fun, especially blended with some crate and amy tangerine papers, plus a few fab tapes; i have a couple of these awesome kraft #10 envelopes from the divine miss stephanie, so i decided to make a long card. i was also very inspired by (hence the name, lol!) laurel seabrook's fabulous inspiration photo #49 this week--plus, it's SO exciting to be able to play a few challenges again!
i mostly took the colors here, but i sort of worked in the feeling of the circles and half-circles with my rounded edges and things. this was one of those times that "inspired by" didn't entirely lead to "looks like"... but my favorite thing about this particular challenge is feeling one hundred percent free to go *WHEREVER* it takes me!
the card makin' mamas are also looking for thanksgiving or thank you cards this week, so why not jump in with a two-fer, eh?!
and now i hope your t'internet surfing will take YOU over to SOS to see the amazingly fabulous work of my fellow design team members, whose friendship and inspiration make me feel thankful in a BIG way, every single week!!! ♥♥♥
