DAY FIVE: I’ve blogged for five days in a row! I plan to blog daily this month so I can catch up a little on sharing cards I’ve made over the years.
Today is World Card Making Day 2013! It happens every first Saturday in October and I’ve participated in it over the last few years. It’s a day where I stay in comfy clothes and get together with other crafters or hole up in my craft studio and work strictly on cards – as many as I can make in one day. This year my theme is Halloween and birthday cards.
I need to get back to card making, so I’ll share this card with you now:
I got my collection of Copic alcohol markers back in early 2009 or 2010 and in the Spring of 2010, I used them to make this card. I used to have a friend who cut hair and she was left-handed, so I found a pair of lefty shears online and looked at them as I drew them before coloring them in and shading them. I wanted to make her something special she could display in her station and I thought it was a fun way to communicate my gratitude. She’s not sentimental and doesn’t save her cards, so sadly, this is the only evidence of the card. She didn’t keep it, but it will live on in my blog! 🙂
Well, thanks for reading my post – I’ve got to get to the craft studio and I’ll see you tomorrow for Day Six!Pin It
