A Vintage Little Darling: Mixed Media Card
Just when I though life couldn’t get more busy I was looking over my weekly calendar and I have something going on everyday this week. Something besides regular life. I have a baby shower at the end of this week so I am frantically putting together a practice cake. It is going rather slow and I am wondering if I am going to get the practice cake done before I have to start the real cake. I am trying my hand at one of those beautiful naked cakes, something I have always wanted to try. It is only two tiers but 4 cakes all together. Along with a cake, I am making a banner, guest book and in charge of games. I found a rather humorous game that is new to me. It is called ‘Crap Happens.” You take 4-6 diapers and melt different chocolate bars inside the diaper. The guests then have to guess what kind of chocolate bar each diaper has inside. I love this idea because it look like real poop! Even at 33 years old I can’t contain a giggle when someone says poop.
As you can see I am slaving away making cake, games with chocolate and mixed media crafts. Haha! So, with limited crafty time this week I only have this card to share.
Creating the Mixed Media Card
In my few minutes to craft this week I decided to keep it simple and make a card. My goal was to clear up a bit of the mess on my worktable. I think a neat work space is a dream because lets face it…who can create when everything is put in it’s proper place? So, I challenged myself to only use items on my work table for this card. The image was taken from an older project that was collecting dust. And the stamped sentiment was leftover from a previous project. It feels so good to use up scraps.
And while I am typing this post, I am drinking tea and my elderberry syrup is simmering away on the stove, making my house smell like Christmas (cloves, cinnamon, ginger). I love making my own medicine especially now that the school year is here. My kids always end up sick once school starts so we use a lot of elderberry syrup. And did I mention that it is yummy?!!
Happy Tea Day!
