No Sunday Activity!!

Hello! This card was made for Saturday's Inspiration Challenge on SCS! I took the inspiration piece quite literal...lol. I'm not exactly too happy with it, but with all the rain we've been getting...well, I guess this is what the rain inspired me to think up. Plus I've been cold and my hands have cramped up on me after creating 3 sets of an altered composition book, pen, tape dispenser, post-it note holder, & candle for the PIF RAK's each! It took me 3 days for each set as life has just been taking me away more often to care for my dad. I wasn't too productive today except that I cleaned up my craft room and made some more room on my craft table so my muse wont be so scared to show up. I really need my muse BAD! Notice the new "watermark" on the card...well, I've been working on that too!!! Now I just need to make some more with my blog addy and some with stamp company copyrights. What do you think?

Supplies:
CS: SSun, OOlive, C2Cocoa, & White NON SU
Ink: C2Cocoa, SSun, PPie, OOrange, PIPink, PPlum, BBanana, BBlue, CCelery, & BBlack
Stamps: Watercolor Minis, Fine Frames, & Happy Harmony
Embellishments: eyelets & clear baubles
Others: pom poms & Crop-A-Dile



I also made something else...a purse card! Well, more like 6 of them for a SCS swap. I actually had fun making these. I made them as I watched re-runs of America's Next Top Model. Now I wish there was a purse or bag out there that looked like this...lol. I love those colors and a bonus...it has "flourishes"!!! I started with a basic card base...yes, just a folded cardstock!!! From there I went on with the corners rounder and then there was no stopping me!


Supplies:
CS: SSky & CChip
Ink: CChip & CCaramel
Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Embellishments: Brads & Chocolate Satin Ribbon
Others: magnets for "clasp", corner rounder punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, gold staples, pom poms (for daubing), & round tab punch
