It's Working!

Here's a card I just made for my sister, based on an idea I saw on Splitcoast Stampers. I wet the cardstock with a mister (recycled spray bottle), then stamped with a solid image stamp of a leaf using a rainbow ink pad. Once that dried, I stamped the same image again. Finally, I used the overstamp with the leaf veins on top of the leaf. Finally, I used a texture stamp (tiny dots) and the swirl stamp.

I got four cards done over the weekend, though one is still not ready to go out. I guess I was a bit overenthusiastic with the glue (Elmer's) and it's still not dry. When I talked to my sister this evening, she told me she'd gotten all the cards I'd sent (some were missing the last time we'd talked). Now she has #50 - #34. YES!! She said they really perk her up and brighten her day, so I think the plan is working. That's what it's all about.

Today I've been knitting like mad on my sock. I turned the heel, and am now about halfway done with the foot. I plan to work on it more tonight, and if all goes well, it will be finished tomorrow, right on schedule. Then I can get started on my older niece's birthday socks.

All these projects will be completed with time. When you finish the Conwy socks, will you blog as to why you disliked the pattern so much?
