my card is another "electricity free" entry, and again i've photographed it at my mother's house, but it was a bit of a grey day, this time. did i mention they're predicting *SNOW* tomorrow here in new jersey? a bit worrying if your only "heating system" is three pots of boiling water! so let's think about my card instead, eh?!
(peacock feathers: m+j trimmings; patterned paper: my mind's eye, studio calico, basic grey, prima, dcwv, k and co; peacock digi: julia makotinsky, india travels; flower: prima; embossing folder: cuttlebug; border punches: recollections; innk: martha stewart; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots)
my "best buy" is the peacock tail feather ornament which came from M+J trimmings in new york and was thus not what you could call CHEAP... but i still consider it one of my favorite all-time finds as my friend kim absolutely LOVES peacocks and i wanted to make her a really special birthday card this year. the peacock's head and body are from a julia makotinsky digital kit called "travels, india" that i got several years ago. everything else is not only stash but was either a scrap or a leftover, because at the moment my "process" is to use the dusk hour to gather what i need and then throw my card together the next morning when the light is better-- but time is short! then i do photos at lunchtime when i stop by my mother's house for grilled cheese and other modern conveniences!
many thanks to miss carla for editing my iphone photo into something which makes it MUCH EASIER to see the details!!!
speaking of convenience, this week's unscripted sketch certainly made MY crafty life easier!!!
and now why not check out the SOS design team cards and start making something we can all come and admire!!! :)
