Hubby: You know, I don't know how the computer runs with all those tabs open.
Me: But those tabs are blogs that I need to comment on.
Hubby: Ok, well, that's a lot of open tabs and one day it is gonna crash on you.
Me: No it won't.
Lesson Learned: Computers can crash, even mine, loosing about 100 open tabs where I wanted to leave comments for dear friends on their amazing creations...
Artful Delight's August Card Kit included the most amazing patterned papers, and I wanted to focus on them through the art of fuss cutting. Speaking of lessons learned, have you checked out the new Paper Crafts Card Handbook? I'm awestruck! I started by fussy cutting the beautiful Basic Grey Paper Cottage papers for the background, keeping the pattern in shades of one color (gallon), drawing your eye down with the bird cages in black (quart) and finishing with a pop of blue in another flower (pint). I think I was inspired by Aime's card that was featured in this magazine, as well as on the MFW blog. (I'm entering this card into Moxie Fab World's Card Design Handbook Week: Gallon/Quart/Pint Challenge and Basic Grey Challenges: Anything Goes.)
My next card also focuses on the patterned paper and rub-ons from the August Artful Delight Card Kit. This time I was inspired by the photo at Runway Inspired Challenge and the pop of orange and tone on tone black.
So here's to a better week of timely commenting on your blogs so that my computer doesn't crash!
