How is everyone doing? It has been a very long week for me. We had three blizzards roll through our area, got tons of snow, work is crazy and my mom slipped on the ice and fell and broke her leg. School was closed for two days, and they had a two hour late start the other two. R and Hulk went home last Saturday, which is probably a great thing, because I have a feeling they'd be stuck here had they waited even one more day. I can't remember a time when I've ever been this cold. I just can't seem to warm up, no matter how many layers I've got on. lol
Anyway, I was hoping to get my Valentine's started, but it just didn't happen. I did, however, get a fun birthday card done last night. Here it is...
I love the fun, bright colors and patterns on this card. I've been trying my luck at heat embossing on vellum lately. It's an awesome look, but I can't figure out how to not warp my paper a bit. Any suggestions would be helpful. I am in love with sequins now too, but "randomly" placing them is so much more difficult than it seems, for me. I spent a lot of time trying to make these look random. lol I have a friend who will be celebrating her 35th in a couple weeks, so I'm going to send this to her. I hope she likes it. I'm going to submit this for the following challenges.
