Wow, we had such a great response to our 1st anniversary challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! I hope you found time to play along, but if you didn't... it's time for a new challenge!
G is for Grey. You could go for a card or other project in lower-case shades of grey, or go all-out and be inspired by the novels.
Full disclosure -- have not read them. Started the first one, but the literary style did not speak to me. Hence my leaving the word "good" out of my post title. That is just my reading opinion, though. And you'd have to live under a rock not to know the gist of the story. (Come to think of it, if you live under a rock, you might be a bit of a masochist... but I digress.)
I already had a card idea in mind, when this one just popped in, fully formed:
I can't help it, this cracks me up! Almost a year ago, my friend Jen made this card... so it's about time I CASEd it. A brief aside... about a month ago, the wire guide on my paper trimmer had a stroke and frayed out. I contacted Fiskars, and this week received a brand new trimmer as replacement! Wow! Excellent customer service. But in the meantime, all those thin paint chip strips had to be cut via Xacto knife and cutting mat. Ugh!
I couldn't resist also making the first card I had in mind. Of course there's a story behind this one, too! :P If you're Canadian, you might be familiar with Murdoch Mysteries. A recent episode was set in the world of corset-makers. I couldn't help but think that corsets must have been designed by sadists and worn by masochists. And... light bulb! Ultimately I decided to update the idea to a more current era...
I'm not the only one who feels this way, am I? Bueller? The image is from The Graphics Fairy, and the sentiment from my computer.
And now it's your turn! Be sure to check out the amazing and often hilarious designs of my teammates and this week's guest designer, Amy!
