I decided I would try to participate in a bunch of card-making challenges this weekend. Right. It's amazing how real life can get in the way of things you hope to accomplish! And for me, real life this weekend resembles a tomato. We planted lots of tomato plants this spring, because usually the neighbourhood critters get more than we do. (Last summer, critters -- probably raccoons -- wiped out pretty much our entire crop in two nights, just as the first tomatoes were barely beginning to blush.) This year, our various preventative measures seem to have worked, resulting in many MANY tomatoes. So that's where a lot of my weekend has gone. Meanwhile, here's what I've made out of paper, not produce:
This uses the sketch from Lily Pad Cards new challenge. I'm hoping it's only my first entry, but we'll see. This one interprets the sketch fairly literally, and I'd like to play with it some more. I went looking through my Christmas papers, thinking I'd cut strips of three coordinating ones for the left panel, but when I came to this striped paper, I knew it was the look I wanted. I'm also entering this in the Less is More "Anything CAS (Clean and Simple) Goes" challenge. All my cards are CAS, so if it gets made this week, that's where it goes! The blog is hoping to reach 1000 entries this week. I'll do my part if I can. :P
