I Have A Purple Foot
Greetings fair people of Card Land! It's been far too long since I've done one of the challenges at 365 Cards. I really missed it! They're about to wrap up the year and I wanted to be a part of this last week. These next two cards are for Day 358 and Day 359, respectively.
It took me a while to figure out how I was going to complete the sketch challenge. It wasn't that complicated, but the flow of inspiration was moving like sap through a tree in the wintertime. The paper clips were a bit out-of-the-box for me... And that's a good thing. lol. The papers are from the "Mi Casa" stack again. (If you didn't see my super cute baby cards from yesterday, you should check them out here.)
Next is the card from the scraplift challenge. This one was SOOOOO NOT easy!! But then, if they were easy, the be called "easy card ideas" not "challenges." Gloria's cards are always lovely, but I am just not good at that vintage look! I have to admit, I almost skipped this one... but I'm glad I didn't. This isn't my favorite card, but it's pretty and I like it. I tried to copy the layout of Gloria's original card.
OH! About the post title... I couldn't think of anything clever, so I went for plain ol' facts. My foot is all purple-y in places. I sat on my sister's collapsible piano bench and, well, it did just that. Collapse. On my foot. *sigh* Almost my entire body weight (which is more than... oh... let's say... enough to hurt. Reeeeeally bad) was pinning my ankle and foot between the seat and the frame. But it's okay now. It doesn't hurt, it just looks kinda gross. Which is why I won't be posting photos :-) Thanks for looking at my cards though! Hehe.
