Cards, cards, cards and WOYWW81
Yes, back in late November I came up with the solution to my glitter problem with my snowglobe easel card. Using the laminating sheets for the circle worked out fine but it bugged me that I had bought the sweet treat cups for the cards and wouldn't be using them. So, back to the drawing board. I decided that if I glittered up my images and let them dry (for gosh sakes) maybe they wouldn't stick to the inside of the cup. That and, for good measure, I wiped the inside of the cup with an anti-static dryer sheet hoping it would repel the glitter and thereby not block my image. All so very scientific.... Lol. But it worked! And I decided to use some chunky Magic Scraps glitter flakes that I bought back in the pre-Cambrian era. I love when something finally gets used. So now (yes, now, in the eleventh hour) I'm finishing up the few cards that I was going to hand make and will mail them today. (Luckily, the sentiment inside my card alludes to a happy new year so they're not really going to be late.... hee hee.) Knowing that I'd never make enough for everyone that should get a little holiday check-in, I broke down and ordered a ton of photo cards from Shutterfly. The only problem is that if they don't arrive today, they won't go into the mail until early January because I'm off with the family on a winter vacation tomorrow. The way I see it (as only a true procrastinator would...), it's never too late to wish someone a Happy New Year. *smile*
Now I have time to think about the small furry animals that are making sawing and scurrying noises in the part of my attic that the exterminator can't get to. But that's another story....
Hope you all have a wonderful, warm, cozy holiday week!
