Sorry I have been MIA. I even missed last week's die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches! But please, please jump on over and check out what the other gals did. I was so impressed with their designs! You can find it here.
It has been a really crazy, busy summer for me. And to top it off, this past weekend, we stripped the ugly wallpaper down in our half bath and painted. Plus, I had a little accident on Saturday night with glass from a 24"x36" picture frame. I had purchased the frame at Michael's. I took the glass out of the frame and put my bathroom mirror in it, so that I would have a new bathroom mirror, without the expense of one (the frame was 50% off, and therefore was definitely cheaper than buying a framed mirror). Anyway, I leaned the glass up against the side of my bed when I took it out of the frame, and both my husband and I completely forgot about it. On Saturday night when I was getting ready to get into bed, I suppose I was reaching for the sheet, and I didn't see the glass at all (the only light in the room was coming from the TV), and I hit my arm into the corner of the glass. Of course it started bleeding immediately. I ran to the bathroom and saw that it was bleeding badly, so I told my husband we were going to have to go to the hospital, and quickly. At that point, I couldn't even see how big the cut was because there was so much blood. I looked in the mirror, and I was as white as a sheet! I think it scared both of us. We wrapped a towel around it, and I held pressure on it until we got to the hospital. Thank goodness it wasn't as bad as we originally thought, but I still have 10 stitches in my lower arm, and am thankful that the cut wasn't 2 inches lower because it could have been my wrist! I have a very sore arm now, so I'm not sure how much cardmaking I will be doing in the next week, but I have 11 cards to make in August for birthdays and an anniversary. Somehow I'll get them done!
Today I am sharing my nephew's birthday card that I made last month. As you recall, I made this card for my other nephew's birthday. His brother also likes to play cards, so he got a poker card as well. Here are the details:
Poker Chips/Money: Father's Day Cricut cartridge cut at 3"
Label: Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge cut at 4 1/2"
Buttons: American Crafts
Wavy black border: Bazzill Just The Edge
The sentiment was computer generated and punched. I then punched holes to add my twine.
I know he loves professional basketball, and I found a logo for the Milwaukee Bucks and put it on the inside with a sentiment that said, "And you thought you were getting money? My bad! Happy Birthday." LOL.
Hope you like it. Have a blessed, crafty day!
