Different At A New Level…

 

Well, does this look a little familiar?  I suppose this should be titled “Chewing Through Leather Part II”.

 

You have seen this before.  I do a card.  I’m happy with it.  I put it on line.  My mind starts fiddling with it and changing it as soon as I see it on the screen.  I liked the first one.  I like the second one.  What’s a girl to do?

As my granddaughter, Hannah, would say, “A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.”  (She says this when she beats me at Canasta…  it is usually preceded by, “I love you grandma but….”)  So, this girl has to go for it and make the changes.  A grandma’s gotta do what a grandma’s gotta do, too!

I want you to see them as well …  the different approaches to one idea I find fascinating and fun.  There are so many variations of one idea for a card that one might try.  Ah, and is this a case of art imitating life?

The only new products on this card are two Spellbinder’s dies (the ornate square frame and the leaves behind the tissue paper flower) and the stick pin and flower center made with findings from Michael’s.

Let me know if you like the changes.  I love hearing from you!

Married, retired, never been so busy..! One of my most prized possessions is my very own craft room! And, actually, all the rest of our home is built around that craft room. Originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. I have been living in Georgia for over thirty-five years after a four year stint in Chicago. Crafting, reading and playing Mah Jongg with our circle of friends are my favorite activities right after spending time with my four grandchildren and four great-grandsons. Two of my three grown daughters and one of my two grandgirls live right across the yard from my husband and I. The youngest daughter, her husband, and our grandpups live in our same town. I have been teaching a paper crafting class for over three years and the ladies in the group have become a second family. We are well and truly blessed with people and critters to love..!

    I do love it. Nothing like a little whimsy to make you giggle.

    When I see your cards, I often times silently assign a ‘purpose’ for sending each one. My first reaction to your second creation with the leather strap chew time expressed was as a sympathy card…..isn’t that sick, morbid, perverted ! Note the birds (spirit, etc) escaping heavenward; OH my! Now, for me to say that I like it, makes me sound sick, morbid, perverted….Oh well.

    • I suppose if you were sending your sympathy because someone’s husband/wife left them or they lost their job or just had to be put on anti-depressants it might not seem so sick, morbid or perverted. Of course, you could be announcing your own loss of spouse, job or freedom from drugs for depression. As I’ve said, there are really so many ways to look at things. As you say…Oh well!!

    These cards would be good for sending to someone just filing for divorce from a truly rotten spouse. Can you smile and snarl at the same time?
