Hi! This card fits today's Ways To Use It Challenge: NO WHITE CARDSTOCK, and today's Stampin' B's Challenge: Friendship Sentiment.
We're still busy, busy, busy at the warehouse. Talk about MAJOR stuff going on! And, I'm having to work so many hours, just to finish a day's work, that I'm considering hiring ANOTHER assistant! That's 2 assistants! I think I'm turning into that boss in "The Devil Wears Prada!" If you haven't read the book or seen the movie, let me sum it up: She's AWEFUL!!! MEAN!!! Demanding!!! Don't get me wrong. The woman and I have some of those traits in common. However, I'm pretty nice...MOST of the time. Just don't forward the calls to my cell when I'm designing. I can't tell you how ANGRY that makes me. I'm in the middle of drawing, and, since the warehouse phones are forwarded, I get ALL the calls from vendors, the dumpster company, the donation calls, and the "Do you want to change long distance providers?" calls. Yesterday, I about had it. I was furious when I found out that ALL the calls were going to me, and NO ONE was picking up the phones. Ever try to make a card while looking up sales figures for last quarter? How about researching a discount code? Oh, and MY personal favorite, when does the cell phone contract run out on my HUSBAND's phone! LOL Seriously! I did all that and DESIGNED 2 stamp sets! (BTW, that's a major thing for me. I usually have to have complete quiet. I usually hide out in my stampin' room to do the drawing, with all the phones off, and NOTHING to disturb me!)
So, when I saw today's challenge, well, I JUMPED on it! I LOVE using Wowza Watercolor paper. It's a cream color, and totally NOT white. The other light color is Vanilla 140lb card stock from MFP. I LOVE that paper!!! YUM!
Since the B's challenge was a Friendship sentiment, I figured I'd highlight it by having it be the focal image. I went a bit nutty with the eyelets. I used both Jumbo and minis on this card.
Finished card size: 5" square
Total Time to complete: 43 minutes. (I had to locate my crop-a-dile!)
