I am so sore from this weekend- my back went out and my hips are out of alignment due to my drive to Baltimore to visit family this past week. I am struggling with how many cards to do this week with the pain I am in from my chiropractic fix. Please excuse the fact that today I combined 2 challenges into one card....
Use It! #6 and 2S4Y #24
For Use It, Regan chose the following guidelines: go out of your comfort zone, use something that you are hoarding, use something new and heat emboss.
Doing "male" cards is always a struggle. I guess I just feel that "they don't get it" the whole made from your heart, handcrafted thing. Just me, but anyway, I did a boy baseball card- give it to the coach or to the baseball afficiando. I had been hoarding these great metal embellies from Tim Coffey collection that I have had about 3 years- why they are in my stash is beyond me, but I found them. New- these papers are from my sister Kris, due to her spring cleaning, I won the jackpot in goodies (I love this WeRMemory Keepers line Urban Window collection!!) and I heat embossed in clear "baseballs" and "batter up" on the gold cardstock (if you look closely enough you can spot it...)
From Kazan's sketch at 2S4Y, this is my interpretation of it. I have to say, that all in all, I am surprised at how well this turned out ( it is quite heavy due to the metal buttons!LOL!!)
Have a great week!
