Hi Friends! Before I begin. . .I decided to take a Facebook Sabbatical. . .meaning, I'm taking a short break from loggingin on Facebook. My blog post will still filter to Facebook so I guess to some degree, I'm still on there. I just don't log in to check or post any updates. I'm doing a personal social experiment. The experiment is to see if I can stay off Facebook for a while. I'm usually on there daily and post updates throughout the day. It can be a bit addicting . . .it's sort of a bad habit to some degree. It's funny how we sometimes become sucked into the social aspects of Facebook but I have to admit it's a great sharing and networking tool. I'm thinking of staying off for at least 2 weeks if I can stand it! Haha!
Anyway. . .now down to business. . .I worked a card this morning. Whoohoo! I'm trying to be versatile with my card making designs. Shabby Chic cards are sort of the trend right now but I don't like being boxed into particular style so some days I'll work on Shabby Chic style, then cute style, then distressed vintage or elegant style. . .it depends mostly on my mood and what I feel like doing at the moment.
Today. . I was in the mood for Shabby Chic. Hehe! I created a bunch of silk flower crochet rosette embellishments and I did list it in my Etsy Shop: Inspired & Unscripted. I made a bunch for myself as well so when I need them I have them readily available. I used my Unity Stamp sentiment and Sizzzix label die to create the sentiment focus of the card.
What's shabby chic without lace, a seam binding bow, and buttons, right? And of course, we can't forget pink, blue, white, and yellow colors! It's sort of nice because it's a great way to use up materials when the color palette is limited to a few colors.
Here is a close up of the silk flower embellishments that I created. I used my handmade crochet flowers and added a satin rosette to the center.
Anyway.. . I have a lot of things to work on today. . .I need to get back to creating! Hope you all have a fabulous Thursday.
