Another Pair With Holes!?

Today Guild Apprentice Lindsay was practicing attack spells in the training room with the Lady Commander of Copics. Being a healer and more adept at white magic, she seems to have trouble performing the attack spells. I thought it might be good for her to brush up on them, as we can run into some pretty hairy situations where offensive spells are a necessity. I was in the crafting chambers, struggling with a card for the Festival of Love, when I heard a loud explosion come from the training room. I hurried down to ensure there were no serious injuries. Angela lay on her back, sprawled on the floor with Lindsay standing above her, an open spell book in her hands. “You knocked my socks off!” the Lady Commander exclaimed. And indeed a few feet away from her were two mismatched socks that should have been on her feet. “That’s perfect!” I shouted, running back to the crafting chambers, the other two staring at me, confused as to my outburst.

Well...what is this now? Spritz card #4 I believe. I’ve got a red, green and yellow done and now a pink one to add to the arsenal. As I did with the others, I masked off the center strip and gave it a couple shots of Dylusions spray ink. This time instead of embossing on the “seam” I embossed the top and bottom of the card using the Cuttlebug and drew a black line on the “seam” instead. The socks and sentiment I stamped using the Lawn Fawn “My Silly Valentine” set. I added some pink buttons on the side and that was that!

On the inside I stamped the socks and sentiment using the “My Silly Valentine” set again. Man this set has been getting quite the workout in the last week! In fact, that accessory managed to level up from all the exp it was gaining from these spritz cards! YES! Level 3 Stamp Set of Silly Valentines

On the envelope I spritzed some more pink ink (haha...that rhymed) and stamped some cute hearts from the “My Silly Valentine” set.

Before they start to stink, these socks will walk into the following challenges:
Emergency Crafters February Challenge: Romance
Friends of SpeedyTV Challenge #58: Valentine’s Day
MFP SpeedyTV Simple Salutations Challenge #31: Valentine’s Card
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #255: Love Struck!
Card Crafter’s Circle Challenge #61: Love is in the Air/Valentine
Creative Craft Challenges2 Challenge #3: Hugs and Kisses
Dream Valley Challenge #50: Valentines
Fat Pages & Cards With Attitude Challenge #33: Be My Valentine
ATCs & Cards With Attitude Challenge #33: Be My Valentine
One Crazy Stamper February Love Challenge

Well, it turns out all that practicing was beneficial as Lindsay leveled up some of her offensive spells and will be better prepared for our next battle. Angela ended up with another pair of socks full of holes, but I did manage to finish my card, which, in the end is all that really matters.
