I haven't been feeling all that great the last few days. Seems allergy season has started early for me -- actually, it never ended LAST allergy season -- seems all my allergy seasons are running together. The last week-end just about did me in -- a family reunion in Waco on Saturday, family things Sunday and Monday which included meet the teacher day, house hunting, lunch out and a movie. By the time I got home Monday evening I seriously thought I was going to die I was so exhausted and.....my feet hurt. So, yesterday was spent trying to recover after my 8 a.m. dental appointment. I hope I remember to NEVER make another 8 a.m. appointment -- this was my second in a month. I am not an early morning person anymore, it seems. Today, however, I was more or less back to my old self so I got some laundry done, managed to actually thaw something for dinner and cook it and I made a couple of cards.
So, without further adieu -- the cards
The first one was not good. It didn't have enough "stuff". So, I improved on it. I added the bat.
This one was a great improvement so it will be the one to be mailed. There is a learning curve to this and I am having difficulty remember to pay attention to the small details. Up to this point I have been putting things together and not paying enough heed to the little things and then the end result is just a bit wonky and I have to think about it. When I think about it I can discern what is wrong and re-do but I am going to have to be more careful to do that BEFORE the thing is a finished product.
Anyway, that was today. After a bit of vacuuming tomorrow I will be back at it because for some reason I just can't get enough of this craft.
