I got another Diva Va Voom card made tonight *okie starts to say 6, but figures everyone knows that by now*. I used two of the Diva's for this one and was able to drag them both onto the area for printing. I got one made and decided I didn't like the papers I was using and of course I already had all the paper cut for 6 cards *okie makes a loud UGH sound*. But now that I look at it in the picture it doesn't look so bad. I think the picture must look better than the card in person because it sure looks ugly when I look at it!!
This paper was some I purchased when my friend Tracy was closing her scrapbook store. It is Sassafrass Lass. I think the sentiment is a little hard to read though.
The sentiment is done with the Wild Card cartridge. Cheers was already a welded word but I welded the "to you!" and the swirl to the Cheers.
I went back into my papers and I was on the phone with BFF Karen and told her "I never have the right shade of blue I need!". She said she figured red would be hard to get the right shade and I told her I have a lot of red papers, but never enough blue. And I also told her "I just don't have enough paper". She said something nonsensical like that couldn't be possible or something or another *okie is good at ignoring statements about thinking okie has way too much paper*.
I did finally find some that I thought I could work with. I think the paper selected for this one just makes the card look more "cheer"y and bright *okie cracks up laughin at the funny she made and realizes what a dork she is because no one else will likely think it is funny*. I think the sewing really added to the card too! I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy my Janome Sew-Mini! *okie wonders if she can get a contract as the Janome Sew-Mini spokesperson since she thinks she got 3 sold this week*. It is so easy to use, easy to store and the stitching is great!
Here ya can see where I used Stickles on the lettering. I think it will look better after it dries. The little martini glass brad was one I got from Eyelet Outlet some time ago. I remember ordering them because they were on clearance *okie sure can't pass up a clearance sale* and figured I would be able to use them some how. When I told BFF Karen "OMG! I can use my little martini glass eyelets!" she immediately knew which ones I was talking about. BFF Karen is good at remembering things when it comes to drinks...she especially remembers "NO MORE MOJITO'S!" But that is a whole notha story!! *okie cracks up and can just hear BFF Karen moan when she reads this*.
I still have a few more ladies from the collection to use and I am seriously thinking of ordering a CD that has more of my beloved fat ladies on it since I am just so diggin workin with these fluffly beauties!!
