A new card...

and it's NOT a Halloweenie one!!


Yes, I feel fine... I'm not sick, well... I mean... uh... I don't have a cold or anything.

What, pray tell, is up with that? Well, someone asked me if I do anything OTHER than Halloween stuff... the answer is... why, yes... yes I do! Had it been someone I knew very well, [ie: Cindy or Laurie] I would have followed that sentence up with a "bi-yatch", but, I kept it a little low key instead [ big grin :) ] I tend to tone things down a bit on this blog... probably to keep the fact that I really am a nut job, a secret. [ wink wink ;) ]

Why would I do that? That, my friends, is the question of the day.

But back to the fun stuff! TAC's SWIC (Soar With It Collection) papers always have a cut-off strip at the bottom that shows the color palette of the whole paper pack...

[how's that for switching gears from one subject to another?! whiplash?]

... Each collection has a different swatch style, and the Hemingway SWIC swatch reminds me of rain drops, or tear drops. I had cut this off and it was on my table, so I just had to use it. Hence, the Miss You Hemingway card.

Miss You Hemingway card supplies:
Stamps: Swirlies & Trendy Greetings
Paper: Hemingway SWIC & Cardstock
Ink: VersaMark, Moonlight White Brilliance, Burnt Umber Palette
Other: pop dots

What do you think? FAR simpler and plain compared to the last post, but, hey... that's just how I roll. :)

GREAT idea on the "strip"! I LOVE the card! It's simple yet elegant & says it ALL. I love the fact that it's "blue" ... goes great with tears! What more do you need? T T F N~B

I would have never thought to use that little strip. Great idea and it turned out to be very elegant.
Love the swirls!
