I seem to be falling behind again as I get ready for another few weeks of out of the ordinary busy-ness. We have another birthday on Friday, a wedding to attend on Saturday, a bridal shower, my grandson's birthday, my son (his daddy) has a birthday the following day, a few dinner dates with out of towners and of course, the regular old stuff that is supposed to get done. Whew!
I've been in a hurry up and wait mode. The dishwasher part hasn't arrived yet, nor has the toy ordered for Colton's birthday. Fabric just came for his bedroom windows, a sock monkey print that will become valances to coordinate with his new bedding and newly painted walls. The rest of the yarn for the never ending afghan is expected within a day or two.
When it gets hectic like this, I like to make simple jewelry or cards because they can be done in relatively little time and I can see a finished project. Not instant gratification, but quicker than the other ones.
This is the Valentine card I made for Colton who loves (make the LOVES) Kipper the dog. Kipper is shown on Sprout TV, a PBS affiliate. The Kipper series is made in England and I must admit, I like him too. I found an image of Kipper online holding a banner with his own name on it. I drew the image and inserted Colton's name in the banner. He recognizes the letters of his name so hopefully he is enjoying this.
This is for an upcoming bridal shower:
And while this has nothing to do with cards, here is the Funky Monkey fabric by Moda that will become window valances. The squares are 2 inches. As busy as it looks here, this is going to be perfect on his new blue walls and coordinates with his sock monkey bedding.
