I'm taking the day and heading to 'the big city' for a shopping trip with my mom. It should be fun to get out of town even if most of it is for grocery shopping. I do plan on making a side trip to JoAnn's to check it out, though most likely it will be the usual sad selection. It's too bad that the new Hobby Lobby won't be open for another couple of weeks... I guess that just means I'll have to plan another trip after the grand opening.
So I pulled a complete 180 on my card today. For the first time in years I tried my hand at creating a true single layer card. There's no paper, no ribbon, no embellishments... nothing but stamping, masking and coloring. What a fun challenge that turned out to be! I even broke out the Tim Holtz Distress Stains for the first time to splash color in the brick background so it would look like Creeper Thursday had been doing a bit of graffiti artwork. ;)
And because Thursday is a classic Creeper I've decided to enter this card into the current Retro Fresh Challenge over at The Greeting Farm. It's to use hearts on a card so I added one to her shirt and another to the 'paint' on the wall.
Ok, time for me to get ready to hit the road. Have fun today, I sure plan to!
