And here's mine:
I thought I could get to this challenge a lot faster than I did - but my hubby ended up requesting my help with a banquet he was putting together for our church. He realized about a week and a half before it was to happen that he really hadn't spent time thinking about the entertainment. So, what's a guy to do? Well, ask your wife - particularly if she was a vocal major in college! :) He wanted a Broadway themed night and asked if I'd be willing to put together a 30-40 minute program - so that ended up taking A LOT of my focus over the past week and a half! Add to that the fact that my almost 2 year old has not been sleeping well (more teeth) and I was just praying to stay healthy enough to pull the whole thing off. Thankfully, I did - and the banquet was for the most part a success and I was very happy for him. I even had a friend there who happened to have a new digital video camera who recorded the whole performance and who was willing to put it on a disk for me - so maybe if I'm daring I'll put some of it here - since one of the "S's" in my title does refer to singing! Well see...
As far as this challenge, I didn't think I'd have as hard a time coming up with something, but then again, I realized that I hadn't taken my dry embossing stuff out for YEARS! I only have 3 of the SU little templates (and they are all retired!) That made it even a little more of a challenge since I just couldn't come up with a great idea. Then I remembered that I had made these little gift-card holders the week before (one was for my nephew's birthday.) I got the idea for the gift-card holder from Dawn Griffith over at "Dawn's Stamping Studio" and I just had to try it out! Today, I realized that my "Love without End" dry embossing template would work well with the circles on the DSP from the SS Kit "Party Pieces" (also retired - but hey, I'm using it up!) Anyhoo - here's another photo of the embossed one along with another one I did (no dry embossing):
Ok, sorry for such a loooooooong post! Thanks for looking!
