Yep...hope I am not boring you all too much with my quickie cards. I have another one to share. It is the second card I made for the raffle at the Garden Club. Sorry about the shadows distorting the look of it. It really is not bent at all.
I do something wrong when I photograph the cards. They always look like the elements are too close to the bottom and the upper third is blank. It must be something to do with the angle of the card when I place it.
This photo has that look...I had to tilt it to keep the sunlight of the shimmer background. The tilt has given it that bottom heavy look again. Any suggestions on how to take good card pictures would be greatly appreciated.
Now for the big news....It is now the only one left for the garden club raffle!
Little Miss C. came over this afternoon to help finish off some of the lake cards. After learning how to chalk, she decided that yesterday's card needed an uplift. She chalked all around the edges with lavender chalk and we stamped a Birthday greeting on the inside. Of course it was carefully chalked as well...she has discovered her niche!!!LOL.
By this time, she had put the majority of the effort into yesterday's card, so I gave it to her for her "Pony Fund". Luckily for little Miss C, my SIL came over for dinner and promptly bought it as she needed a birthday card for a friend at work. Here is the reworked, lavender chalked card.
Little Miss C was grinning from ear to ear when Mummy came to pick her up. She left with a little golf ball box, full of cards. I think there were $40.00 worth of cards in her box! I gave her pretty well all the cards we made at the lake...and some new ones we made today. She is going to be grinning even bigger when I give her the $5.00 SIL left for her. My, that pony fund is growing!
While she was carefully placing her beloved cards in the clear card sleeves and sticking her teensy price tags on the back she shared her marketing plans. She was certain that my oldest DD (Glamour Girl) was going to want a fancy one, and her other grandparents would surely need some cards, as they didn't have many art supplies at their house!!!!
