Some Chocolates for My Parents
It is Pink and Black at Squigglefly (SF0613). I am so running low on time this week with extra overtime, only one car in the family since Kenny's Truck is in the shop, Valentines, and packing for my crafting retreat this weekend! Ok, those of you who know me well know that I haven't packed a thing yet. Anyway, I couldn't resist participating in the Squigglefly challenge which was the perfect opportunity to use this wonderful Maria Shega Cherry Cordial image. I mention I was low on time because I wanted you to know how fast I made this card - less than 30 minutes and that includes purchasing the image, downloading it, transferring it to a thumb drive, moving it to another computer (I like word on my laptop instead of the Apple version on my desktop), putting it in word with a sentiment (the time to think of the sentiment too), dragging my printer in here to the Kitchen Counter, printing the sentiment, hunting for the paper, cutting it all out, and sticking it altogether. It would have taken a lot less time if I had been organized or already had the image. These detailed images at Squigglefly are easy to make fast cards with because they don't have to be colored. My Pop loves cherry cordials and my Mom loves everything so this will make a great Valentine's card for them. I am also loading this card in the Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS since the challenge is actually all about my parents this week. The group is making cards and sending them to my parents to give them some support through my Mom's cancer treatments and this very difficult year they have both been through. Those Tea Party Sisters the best! Have to run get ready for work.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY HUGS to all!
