Oh how I miss visiting New York. I’m a West Coast girl who loved living on the East Coast for four whole years! I don’t mind cold weather… it gives me a reason to stay inside and craft… LoL.
Shoveling snow? Well, that’s a part of life and a great way to stay fit. Many have asked what was my favorite thing about New York… I must say I can’t point out one specific thing. I loved everything… even the people… LOL. They aren’t rude – just straight forward!
This is a new sketch challenge for me and when I saw it, I knew I just had to try it! Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 213
Lesson Learned: Don’t ever be afraid to make a card size that is outside your comfort zone. I very rarely make card that are not the standard A2 size (4-1/4″ x 5″ or vice-versa). The card base on this oddity is 7-5/8″ x 8″ and once it’s folded in half it becomes 7-5/8″ x 4.
However, I knew not to worry about finding the perfect envelope because once I figure out who I’m going to mail it to… I will use my handy dandy Envelope Punch board to make one with. HA! The envelope punch is so much fun to use there there are days when I just want to make envelopes all day long… LoL.
Quick true story… during Sale-a-bration (sorry if you missed it), I earned a FREE Big Shot Die-Cut Machine. It hasn’t arrived yet, but I’m thrilled to know I’ll have an extra one to use during a workshop. Then again, I toy with the idea of giving it away once I hit a certain milestone in my Stampin’ Up! journey. Kicker is, I’m gonna let y’all determine what I do with it. I welcome your comments with suggestions of what you would do with it if you were me.
Perhaps I should give it away the moment I get 500 “Likes” on my Facebook page… hmmmm… now that’s an idea. My thoughts are churning.
