Say, what madness is this? I’m actually posting a card on Friday night? Say it isn’t so! Ok, yes it is. I’ve got a full day of crafting planned tomorrow, so I thought I’d get ahead of the game and post this week’s card tonight while the sun isn’t shining.
Now I know that really the main point of this year-long project was to use up stuff I already had, but when I found the sentiment stamp on this week’s card at Hobby Lobby on clearance for two measly bucks, I couldn’t help but buy it. And maybe I made this week’s card because I’m super-excited and counting down the days to Wizard World Comic Con in Minneapolis in three weeks. Or maybe it’s just my inherent geekiness. I don’t know. But I really like it. 🙂
The layout is based on a design from my recipe book again. And yes, that is a little Dalek peeking out from the inside. Anyone who has known me for any reasonable length of time knows I’m a huge Doctor Who fan, so this card is very “me.” I was going to try to make a different but similar-themed card, but didn’t have the cardstock I needed. I think I’m going to try that next week, though, as I picked up a few sheets of the right color cardstock at Hobby Lobby today after work. The I ❤ nerds stamp is from Stampabilities and is the clearance stamp I found. The TARDIS and Dalek stamps were from this etsy store, sold as a set. I actually got them to stamp on some fabric to make a new work bag, but haven’t gotten that far yet, so this was the first time I actually used those stamps.
Well, I think I should probably get a head start on my crafting projects so I am signing off for the week. Or maybe I’ll just go bake some cookies. Or both. We’ll see.
